Murderous Clown

About 3 and a half years ago my little brothers made a video on youtube called Murderous Clown (1/2) but they never actually made a part 2.

 

Over Thanksgiving break I was over at my parents house and asked my brothers if they wanted to make a part 2 to their video. Hunter (the clown) was okay with it but thought that the whole video was dumb.  Devin (the kid running from the clown) though was really excited about my idea and was totally up for it.  The only problem though is he wanted to make it serious even though the original video that is flashed in the begging obviously wasn’t serious.  I wanted him to talk more like he did in the first video but he wouldn’t.

Despite some difficulties directing and getting the actors to do what I wanted them and my dog being annoying to I think it turned out pretty good.

The story is about a boy waking up from his house and going out to hunt for some food when he sees the killer clown from 3 years ago passed out.   He thinks the clown is dead but then it gets up and goes after him.  It ends with a flash back of the clown pwning Devin then back to Devin who pwned the clown

P5 Image Editing. The number five.

Class project. We made videos based around the number 5. It didn’t turn out how I wanted it to, but in the end I just needed a grade so it’s good enough. The shakiness was actually intentional but after importing it I realized that it actually didn’t look very good. It also looked cultist before adding music.  I didn’t want to use the elevator but needed more video.  I put it in the beginning hoping that maybe viewers will forget that was ever in there (it’s just not fitting)

I hate the music I used but finding music that’s good and creative commons can be really difficult so I just used something I didn’t even really like.

Overall, I had high hopes for this project and it just didn’t work out like I wanted it to.   If I could start over with the knowledge I have now it would be a lot better.  I didn’t mean for it to appear so lazy but I also didn’t want it do a list or skit so maybe.  I did have big plans to use a lot of symbolism for 5 instead of the actual number 5, but then realized that that stuff was hard to find.

P4 Audio. Happy Halloween!

I wish I spent more time in this project planning and making something a little more original and creative.  Instead I looked towards Reddit for some scary true experiences that have happened to users.  This one stuck out to me and it was short enough to use in this audio project.  In spirit of halloween I aimed for something scary.  What’s scarier than finding a dead body?  Probably plenty of things, but I wouldn’t want to be in this situation.    I had fun with this project and am looking forward to doing more audio projects as I continue the multimedia program.   It would have been nice to have been using a better microphone instead of the internal mic belonging to the computer, but we make do with what we have and I’ll probably just buy a mic of my own eventually.   In audacity I tried to add little sound effects and music to add suspense and visualization of the story.

Survive the Forest: An Indie Game Dev Blog

survivetheforest.com is the dev blog for the indie game The Forest.  Some images may be disturbing.

Screen Shot 2015-10-13 at 11.08.54 AM

The Forest is a game that’s in it’s beta stage of development right now.   It seems to be mostly run by Anna who writes updates on the process of the game, bug fixes, patches, dead lines, and includes features like screen shots, trailers, and an FAQ.  The FAQ is a good resource of information for anyone thinking about purchasing the game or wondering about more of the game’s features.   This site is a good example of what a well made dev blog should look like.  The scrolling screenshots on the top of the homepage are attractive and gain the attention of the viewer and can make new viewers more curious about the game.  The posts are easy to look at with clear titles so the reader knows that when a post is titled “v.0.25b – hotfix” they’re going to be reading about the version 0.25b hotfix.

Some things that could be better would be an easier to access archive in case someone wants to compare updates or see what the game was like back in the earlier versions of the game.   For a dev blog it’s fine where it is, but I think it could use some more topics like a Q&A too keep more people interested in the blog and game itself.

About Justice

My name is Justice Bishop.  I am from Prineville, Oregon but moved to Eugene to study Multimedia Design at Lane.  Though this is my first year at Lane I went to Central Oregon Community College last year, so I pretty much know my way around when it comes to school.  My interest in the field of Multimedia Design are video games and film so I decided this major so I can explore my options.  Though I enjoy playing video games, I also very much enjoy making them.   I have my own Gamejolt dev account and have one game up right now and plan on uploading more.   I’ve never done much with film yet but would love to learn and try it out.

My hobbies outside of school are watercoloring and flying stunt kites.  Pretty lame hobbies to some, but it’s really nice and I like the calmness of it.  I have a Flying Wings Laima(this one is my favorite) and a Prism4D Ultralite.  I’m trying to grow my collection of watercolor paintings beyond just trees and mountains.

I’m really excited to be a part of this program and really hope I can take the skills that I learn here to a job.  It seems like Lane has a really good thing going on here.
