Greetings Pinball Fans,
Today, we would like to show you a short video clip of the State Fair Balloon Pop Bumper in Action. Jack says, "The whole idea of this bumper was to have a little game beyond the game. I love to nudge the games I play and this bumper gives that opportunity to complete a mode for a really cool reward."
Jersey Jack Pinball - State Fair Balloon Pop Bumper in Action
Jersey Jack Pinball is happy to annouce Jean-Paul (JP) de Win as the Graphic Designer/LCD Artist for the Wizard of Oz Pinball Machine. While studying at The Design Academy in The Netherlands, JP discovered he enjoyed computer graphics and 3D Animation and was soon offered an internship in the graphics department at Williams right after the release of Pin2000. However, after only 2 weeks after his start, Willams decided to close down its pinball department. JP then continued his half year internship at Midway Games designing touchscreen games under the supervision of Greg Freres.
Back in Holland, JP finished school and worked for several Dutch broastcast companies in Amsterdam where he specialized in Motion Graphics for on-air promos and program packages. In 2010, JP started his own company working as a freelancer, called JP Design.
JP says, "I really appreciate Jack's courage to hire somebody on the other side of the ocean. Skype & internet enables me to work closely with Greg and the team and now I can finally work in pinball and fulfill my ambition of working in the industry. It's a great honor to be the first LCD-artist for a pinball machine, thanks to Jack!"
Jack says, "We are thrilled with what JP has produced for us so far. He is an extremely talented individual who is going to help us take Pinball to the next level." To see some of JP's work, visit http://www.jp-design.nl/.
Stay tuned for next week's update where we will announce two people who are working to bring the JJP factory to life!
