As with any video artwork piece, many interpretations can be made. My interpretation may not be the same as anyone else’s, but below I will explain where my thoughts had come from. I encourage anyone to watch the video before reading what my intentions were. Continue reading
After meeting with my group today, we discussed some changes for our project. Based on the feedback we received, we realized that our concept was not getting the ideas we needed across.
The new concept is going to feature a small group of tamarins in the middle of the screen, still in the forest. We will have four onscreen buttons that will trigger a different animation. Each button will relate to the tamarins daily life activities: eating, sleeping, playing, and grooming. Continue reading
Above are the assets I have designed for our group project surround Golden Lion Tamarins. In our group, we decided to go with a child’s coloring book aesthetic. I focused mainly on the design for the food that Tamarins eat and the starburst that appears behind it when tapped/touched on screen. I came up with three designs for three types of foods that Tamarins eat: snails, berries, and flowers.
For my video artwork I would like to focus on the poet, Edgar Allan Poe. Poe was a huge inspiration to me back when I was interested in creative writing, and I would like to be able to bring that inspiration to my video work as well. I would like to pull a few themes from some of his short stories and poems and focus on the quote, “I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity.” Possible use of candles flickering, masks, dramatic lighting, and a pulsing sound (like the heartbeat in “The Tell-Tale Heart”).
I want the aesthetic to follow the general feel that Poe’s stories and poems embody: dark, dreary, with a hint of insanity. I don’t really want things to make too much sense, which would also link back to the quote.
For this project, we collaborated with CIT students to produce a game. The game I have been focusing on is the Underwater Tactics RPG. After coming together with my group, I decided to work on the obstacle assets. The obstacles for this game are corals and kelp that will cover one tile unit of the game board. There is also a large rock with corals and kelp covering it.
Below are the assets I have made for the game: Continue reading

The above video is a montage featuring toy ducks. I took 20 short video shots (only a few seconds each) of the ducks around campus. Once I had the clips, I edited them down to one second each and organized them to make it look as if the ducks were traveling around to see different points of interest (ie: different places with running water).
The following video addresses and fixes a weird jump cut in and interview scene, along with an issue with one of the clips with my laptop in it where a message from premiere pro popped up and stayed on screen.
