In conjunction with a National Guard promotional campaign, the band 3 Doors Down produced the song titled Citizen/Soldier accompanied by a music video with high production value.

The project itself was to create a Flash mini-site that would be hosted on the National Guard website. I was responsible for the design and programming.

The site featured the music video as well as exclusive video interviews and allowed users to download the song for free upon providing their information. To do so, users would be required to fill out a form provided easily noticeable error messages if they did not provide a valid e-mail address, date of birth, or any other required information.

A zoom and pan animation transitioned users between pages. The animation was done programmatically to avoid causing hang-ups on slow machines.
