Juicy Games

Two Games I find do a good job of being juicy is Blitz and Pokémon Go.

Blitz is a mobile game where you try to get 3 or more gems in a row to score points. the gems sparkle when you get three or more in a row, when you collect coins at the end of the game, and special gems have their own dispersal sounds and animations.

Pokémon Go is also a mobile game where you can travel around to real time locations and capture Pokémon. The juiciness comes from the camera zooming in when you encounter a Pokémon, the various animations and sounds a Pokémon makes when you encounter it, when one appears, and when you capture one.

Kaguya High

This is my special version of the Traditional Japanese Story, “The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter.” I have mine set in a modern American Private School where a Japanese transfer student arrives and she suddenly becomes the object of affection for the five big men on Campus.

Kaguya is a transfer student from Japan. She is very sassy, smart, and athletic. She enjoys reading, playing basketball, and messing with other people’s heads. She often messes with the heads of the big five as the strive for her attention.

Richard is the private school’s smartest student and bookworm. He comes from a very rich family, but he is very bored with the life style.

Jack is the private school’s star athlete. He is the main quarterback in Football (American), star kicker in Soccer, and best player in Basketball until Kaguya shows him up.

Henry is the most good looking guy on campus, he also has good grades but he’s not as smart as Richard since he focuses more on his looks than his studies.

Jersey Devil Documentary

For my short documentary, I would like to do one on the Jersey Devil. The Jersey Devil is an urban legend in New Jersey that started in 1735. The Devil has once human him/herself, born the thirteenth child on Friday the 13th, but his/her mother decided that this baby would be the devil. No longer after the baby was born, it began to change, turning into a strange creature with hooves, bat wings where his/her shoulder blades were, a serpentine tail, horns and the face of a horse. It is believed it now lives somewhere in the Pine Barrens and h\there have been many claimed sightings, but it still remains a mystery whether this beast is real or fake.

My Noh Bunraku

This is my own version of a Japanese Bunraku Puppet wearing a Noh mask. The fact that Noh is a performing art style and puppetry of any kind is designed for entertainment purposes means that these two were easy to put together. While most Bunraku are made of wood, my puppet and it’s clothes are all sewn by me and are attached through thread. The wooden dowels in it’s arms and feet are used to move their respective limbs and are easily removable if I want to change the puppet’s clothes. The mask itself was made by poking toothpicks in the head and covered it in paper mache; this part of the Bunraku is not removable and is permanently part of the puppet’s face. The mask was inspired by the hannya mask used in many Noh plays.

Here’s Looking At You, Kid – Casablanca Fan Dub

For my repurposing project, here is a clip from the 1942 film Casablanca that I re-dubbed with my own voice. I also included songs from the YouTube Audio Library. This includes an instrumental version of This Old Man by Green Orbs and Earnest by Kevin MacLeod.

I chose to to this because I like to change my voice a lot and I enjoy acting.

Repurpose Project Original Clip

I have been given a project to repurpose a two to three minute clip into something different. The clip I’m doing is the one above from the 1942 film Casablanca. I will be dubbing all the lines in my own voice and I will also add a few sound effects  and a different score from the YouTube Audio Library.
