As If Productions (AIP) is the web studio of Tod Foley, specializing in the development of custom interactive systems.
Founded in 1991, AIP has designed and produced immersive websites, virtual worlds, roleplaying games, CD-ROM games, LARPs and live interactive events for clients including Comedy Central, 20th Century Fox Films, Sony/Epic Records, Times-Mirror Magazines, Walt Disney Records, Revelations Entertainment, Iron Crown Enterprises, and The WELL. No matter what type of interactive system you have in mind, we're here to bring it to life.
Back when it was still called "The Bastardly", As If Productions handled MoeJackson's conversion from WordPress to Drupal, the platform they remain with today. This popular celebrity gossip blog was once listed by MAXIM among the best examples of "pervarazzi" websites. Make no mistake: Moe and Jackson do not idolize their celebrities; they prefer them skewered. Or naked. Or skewered, naked.
VivaGreen was a brainchild of Pivotal Ventures Inc. This highly dynamic site featured a variety of advanced Drupal features, including a complex taxonomical structure, ad-hoc user groups, tag clouds, and a customized tabular approach to the "CCK Address" module allowing vendors to be sorted by city, state/province, country, zip/postal code or name. The company was unfortunately unable to secure a new round of funding, and the site was taken offline in 2010.
Newbury Greens is an online artists community, personal artists gallery and exhibition hall for digital representations of physical artworks. Using a hybrid platform consisting of Drupal (for taxonomy and community features) and X-Cart (for e-commerce features), we were able to quickly put together a seamless user experience allowing art collectors to interact directly with each other, and with the artists whose work they are following.
"Multi-media digital content anywhere anytime."

CRT also allows Content Creators to upload thir own original content and offer it for sale. (Proceeds are split 50/50, and there is an affiliate program in the works as well.)
Dropping In is a documentary film about Don Wimmer, a 42-year-old accountant who dreams of becoming a professional skateboarder. AIP created this Drupal-based website to give the production team an easy way to keep in touch with their fans and online marketing partners, and to distribute sample clips from the movie.
Another blog made the transition from WordPress to Drupal with the completion of this migration job for The Rad Report. Custom features on this site included a dropdown archive search block and browsable thumbnail galleries.
Praised as "The Number 1 Green Wedding Site" by Martha Stewart Weddings, Portovert (roughly translated: "the green gateway") is the flagship publication of Portovert LLC, who also brought you the HauteIdea website for green homes.
A Drupal-based Community and News portal for the non-profit organization Cool Our Planet, the MUSE Campaign is based on the simple concept of sharing music to save the earth. MUSE Contributors include not only musicians but bloggers and visual artists as well.
