Hotel Contest Microsite

In early 2010 I built a Flash microsite for HomeAway. It was a Griswolds Vacation themed contest where people could upload their videos and stories describing their worst hotel nightmares. I worked with the Kyte API for video serving, built a voting system and integrated a bunch of pre-built timeline animations.

The site was designed only to be used for this special event, but I did capture a couple recordings of it in use.

This microsite and campaign won a Gold Effie and was an honoree at the 15th annual Webby Awards. You can get more information and watch the Griswolds Vaction film at The HomeAway Campaign page at Publicis’ website.

And here’s another example of the site in use:
