Urijah Faber, about to put a whuppin’ on Ryan Yamamoto.
I’m a little jealous of my former colleagues at KQED. They’re getting a first crack at using the apps produced by the startups working with Matter, a San Francisco-based accelerator that KQED is helping to fund. That includes the storytelling tool Zeega, which allows users to use audio, images and animated GIFs in a slideshow-like presentation. KQED Pop’s Lizzy Acker - who I didn’t know had a website until now - recently created this nifty Zeega for Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky.”
I’m nothing if not a sucker for new storytelling tools, so I tried putting together a Zeega using the GIFs and photos from our story this week about what it’s like to battle a UFC star. The story features News10’s Ryan Yamamoto in the ring with ultimate fighting champ Urijah Faber.
The soundtrack for my Zeega was inspired by this South Park episode.
UPDATE: OK, so the Zeega embed seems to need work as well. The iframe height and width is automatically set to 100%, which creates a very short embed. I manually set the height and width to 500pxish, and that seems to work on web. I’m sure it looks odd on mobile, though.
