E3 2018 Music Video

 

Here’s a music video / clip reel of my favorite game announcements, trailers, and gameplay from E3 2018! I used to make a point to make one of these every year but it dropped off many years ago. After a really thrilling set of reveals (and the sad state of world), I decided to dust off the process and take on the simple creative exercise.

The whole process is so enjoyable: finding the game trailers I love, selecting the perfect song for the mood I want to impart, extracting the most thrilling video clips, creating a beat track to align the clips, arranging everything…it feels awesome to feel a clip slide right into place with the music. A couple nights of that and some polish and viola, a little time capsule of my mood, interest and excitement bundled into one hype reel.

Even if these games never live up to the hype (or come out at all), I’ll always love a good E3 trailer. Enjoy!

Florida Springs Video

Throughout the last decade or so, I’ve had the privilege of visiting most of the springs in Florida. I had a lot of personal, amateur video lying around, so I thought I’d throw together a little fun clips video to share my adventures. Enjoy!

Celeste Summit B-Side

One of the best surprises of 2018 so far has been Celeste, a tough-but-encouraging platformer by the developers of Towerfall: Ascension. I bought it after reading reviews on launch day and was enamored by its music, style, gameplay…really everything about it. Get it, play it; you will absolutely love it.

I may have more words on this game later, but check out a little video I put together this weekend on one of the harder levels in the game: the “B-Side” of Chapter 7, “The Summit.” I snapped video of every screen via PS4 capture and stitched them all together showcasing each screen’s first attempt, a death montage, and the screen’s successful attempt. Enjoy!

Riven Retrospective

Join me on a journey back through one of my favorite video game experiences: Riven: The Sequel to Myst! Watch at 1.5x, and don’t miss my previous Myst Retrospective: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zp1jkGEKnCU


Despite being one of my favorite game series ever, I dropped off the Myst train after Myst 3. In an attempt to get back on and get some motivation to see through Myst 4 and 5 (and maybe Uru) before mainlining Obduction, I wanted to revisit Myst, Riven, and Exile and share my thoughts in some form.

The above video is my attempt for Riven, which featured a whole webcam just for my notes! I had a ton of fun with this one; it’s so much harder to related the game through a thorough playthrough (as the puzzles and world are much less modular than Myst). Enjoy!

Myst Retrospective

Join me on a journey back through one of my favorite video game experiences: Myst! I talk about Myst, why I did this video, why Myst is special, and then I skate through all of realMyst: Masterpiece Edition! Save yourself some time and watch at 1.5x.

008: Operation Remake

A quick-and-dirty for-fun remake of my first movie, in the small break between moving my parents to their new house several miles away. The move wasn’t particularly fun, and I didn’t really get a chance to experience it all one last time, but I’m glad I made some time for this. I’ll always have this!
