As If Productions (AIP) is the web studio of Tod Foley, specializing in the development of custom online interactive systems.
Founded in 1991, AIP has produced immersive websites, virtual worlds, roleplaying games, CD-ROM games and live promotional events for clients including Comedy Central, 20th Century Fox Films, Sony/Epic Records, Times-Mirror Magazines, Walt Disney Records, Revelations Entertainment, Iron Crown Enterprises, The WELL and The Electronic Cafe International. No matter what type of interactive system you have in mind, we're here to bring it to life - from concept and development to webhosting and support.
As If Productions recently upgraded the website of the Experimental Television Center from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7. As Drupal developers know, the upgrade from 6 to 7 is particularly hairy and not at all intuitive. The job was especially complicated as the center features a massive Biblio-based database, which required manual reconstruction in MySQL.
Matthew Schlanger of Black Hammer Productions is a visionary video artist, programmer and maker from New York. This website focuses on his video work, as well as documentation of his studio and information on custom video tools in general. The site also includes a sampling of code projects and physical computing. Recently rebuilt under Drupal 7 by As If Productions, the site features many fascinating video experiments and historical information on the ETC (Experimental Television Center).
