Welcome Bobby Richter

I’m very happy to announce that Bobby Richter is joining the Web Made Movies team as Creative Technical Lead. Already a Mozilla contributor, having worked with the #audio team on a variety of demos and libraries, Bobby is joining us to, as he writes on his about page, “make Web Made Movie’s ideas tangible as quick as possible”. Bobby’s job will be diverse: contributing to the popcorn.js community, advancing the Butter platform, and helping to create magnetic productions as outlined in our 2011 goals.

Bobby brings a range of experience – from helping to create the NFB’s award winning Out My Window, to a stint at Electronic Arts, Bobby has both skill and experience that all of us on the media team are thrilled to have among our nascent group.

During our recruiting conversations, I was particularly excited about his experience with WebGL, and these discussions manifested themselves in a demo. Please check it out here – its an early peek at integration WebGL and Popcorn, via an homage to Mozilla’s JavaScript jedi master Brendan Eich.

Say hello to Bobby over at his blog, and you can find him on irc.mozilla.org in the #popcorn channel as “richter”, or sometimes under has super hero name, secretrobotron. Welcome, Bobby!
