I’m pretty happy with how my final project turned out. We were asked to bring in a few generative animation examples to use as creative inspiration for our final project. I brought in this example, and it didn’t take long for us to crack the code of how it was accomplished in class. I took […]
We started messing around with Arduino, a type of microprocessing kit that can be programmed to control devices. I’m pretty illiterate when it comes to electricity and how connections work, so this is a good opportunity for me to gain some basic knowledge of circuitry. We plugged a few things into our breadboards, made lights flash […]
We messed around with Perlin Noise in p5js last week and I got pretty excited at the possibilities of random generative animation. I kept messing with this concept and have a couple animations set up to link with audio. The amplification of the audio basically affects the speed and size of the animated shapes. I’m […]
We have moved on to combining for loops and arrays in p5js. This is a quick way to multiply a ton of objects and get them animated. I’m kind of understanding the basic idea, but still cannot seem to build out a sketch without referencing a tutorial or help website. Every animation or function has […]

We have moved on from video production to programming in p5.js, and I’m super excited about diving into this subject. After a couple of assignments on just sketching some objects in p5, we have moved on to working with interactive features. We built a basic game of pong in class and the goal now […]
Here’s the final product. Enjoy!
After getting some much needed feedback from my class, the video seems to be on the right track but still needs a few adjustments. It’s not until you show a video to people that you realize how LONG scenes can take to resolve, so I am definitely trimming the fat where needed. A lot of […]
I’ve been reviewing footage for my short Speculative Fiction film and I am seeing opportunities to add some visual interest to the storyline. I’ve gone back and shot all of my scenes a second time, but from different camera angles. This should help break up the monotony of each scene and keep the story flowing at a […]
A few screenshots of film editing in progress. I removed the outside noise from the recordings and am replacing it with more ambient sound. The audio will be an important part of this film, as most of the piece is dialogue between the user and his Operating System. (<– Click the image to scroll through […]
EDPX 4010 Reading Response #1 Reading #1 – Introduction to “Program or be Programmed” (Links to an external site.) What is your initial response to the argument that we should all know how to code? Although I think this is a tall order, especially given that a majority of humanity has no major care for the understanding of […]
First project: Write a script and storyboard a speculative fiction that challenges current technical pathways. This will eventually become a short film. I have the option to present a couple of ideas, so why not take advantage? One idea is relevant for current emerging tech, the other is a little far-fetched. Here they are: Script Concept […]
