One of my latest experiments was to create a fullscreen background with a video, for this I used HTML5 video tag and loaded it on a canvas element.
Although it worked it somehow felt incomplete because it was simply a video as background, it needed some edge add to it, for this I decided to use Pixelate library http://close-pixelate.desandro.com/ and extend it so it supported video as well as images.

I have just released a beta version of a JQuery plugin that manages text animation, it is super easy to use and the results are pretty impressive.
There is still work to be done and whoever wants to contribute is welcome to fork on github here
You can view the plugin page here -> http://netgfx.github.com/SplitText/

Or check out under the hood with a previous tutorial that I wrote here -> http://nightlycoding.com/index.php/2013/02/text-effects-with-timelinemax/
If you like it, drop me a line below, also if you find a bug make sure to file it on github
Text is one of the most important aspects of web-development, someone may have great pictures, effects, and complex animations but if there is no content in text, chances are that the viewer will start looking elsewhere. So since text is such a great aspect of the website or application why not try and make it a little more appealing and exciting, after all it’s not only what you say (write) but how you present it.
So I thought to create a series of effects and animations that modify and give text a “Wow factor”.

Recently Greensock added some new cool features to their animation JS Engine, these target specifically css3 animations and animating css3 properties.
So I thought to create a little demo showcasing some of these cool new features.
This Image gallery moves on 2 axis, horizontally for viewing different images and “vertically” or “in-time” if you prefer for viewing different galleries.
You can view a rough DEMO here
You can read more about his findings here: svg-css-injection
So after injecting the SVG inside the DOM I thought of why shouldn’t we try and animate it (no one likes static images right?), some simple things like change color gracefully, scale it or even programmatically create a simple animation of it.
I will show here how we can use simple tools like JQuery and TweenMax from Greensock and animate a simple SVG graphic.
View a DEMO here: AnimateSVG DEMO
Plus it works with JQuery out of the box AND supports CSS animations, HTML properties animations, timeline animations and a bunch of other cool stuff.
!Note: best viewed with a modern browser as I used css3 for the shapes.
