The Curious Gamer

“The Curious Gamer” is a show we created that explores the design, culture, and joy of video games. It seeks to connect “non-gamers” with “hardcore gamers” in a unified discussion around this exciting and rapidly evolving medium.

“Melody,” is a senior thesis short film project for Grand Valley State University, 2011. This part sci-fi, part experimental narrative follows a musically-gifted woman named Mona.

After an accident leaves her comatose, Mona is stuck in her own subconscious. What’s worse, the suicidal man responsible for the accident is sharing this dream-like state with her. She must use her powers of music and magic to overcome her obstacles and find a way to “wake up.”

A Minecraft Creation

“A Minecraft Creation” is a unique animation series involving Minecraft (a creative, virtual Lego-set video game) and uses it to make movies. The film employs amazing cinematography, a charming original soundtrack, custom sound design, and advanced game modifications to create beautiful animation.
