Repurposed Video Part 1

RepurposedVideo1 from Danielle Kanuck on Vimeo.


For this project, we were tasked with finding clips online and editing them in a different way. I chose a clip from the Marvel Avengers movie and a clip from the 70s-80s tv series The Incredible Hulk. I chose to play with the anticipation aspect of the video. When watching this clip, viewers would expect to see the new version of the Hulk, along with better quality special effects. Instead, I have edited in clips from the old tv series.

Self Portrait Video

The basic concept I went with for my self portrait are the existential questions that run through my head. I’m not a particularly active person, so I chose to lay around in different places–some normal and some not so normal.

Preproduction Game Design

Update: Upon realizing that my current design would have cause me to need to change the template too much, I decided to modify my level design. Instead of a top-down scrolling game, it will be a side-scrolling game where the player is looking straight down onto the playing surface.

modified level sketch:


For my game concept, I have been playing around with the idea of a top-down scrolling game. My character will only be able to move left or right to avoid walls and collect candy/cupcakes. This will be a 2-dimensional game with 2-dimensional animation. Any collision with a wall will result in “game over.”

Interaction Review 1

Game I could play forever: Mahjong Dark Dimensions

In this puzzle game, the user interacts by clicking a mouse (or a trackpad for a laptop). As the user moves either the mouse or their finger (if on a trackpad) the cursor can be seen moving across the screen. By pressing down and clicking, objects can be selected within the game. These objects are 3-dimensional cubes with different patterns. When cubes are clicked, they light up. Continue reading

Theme Building-JS/CSS

Screen Shot 2017-05-10 at 11.23.56 PM.png

Above is a link to my site concept with the javascript and css incorporated. There is parallax scrolling on the side menu to keep it in view whenever the page is scrolled. There are also alert boxes that pop up to let people know where they are being redirected.
