A Spiritual Reunion

Morgan Dickman, Writer, Director, Producer, Editor, Senior; Cameron Mumbower, Actor, Senior; Benjamin Sturycz, Actor, Senior

This video is called A Spiritual Reunion. This short film is about the ghost of a fourth-grade teacher seeking revenge on one of his former students. This project gave me a lot of creative freedoms and allowed me to create something I thoroughly enjoyed, while having a lot of fun in the process. In my future, I would like to work more as a video editor, and hopefully work my way into editing films.

This video is titled What Is Really Going On At Blacksite Theta. This video was our first promotional video for the game Blacksite Theta, which was a class project that MAGD 488 worked on all semester. The class was broken down into different teams in order to effectively create and promote the game. This video was our first video created for our Marketing Team. My main interest is video editing, and this video was incredibly fun to create. This project really opened my eyes to the limitless possibilities of video editing.

Blacksite Theta Coming Soon

Morgan Dickman, Director, Producer, Editor, Senior; Josiah Lynden, Writer, Actor, Senior; Dayne Farris, Boom Mic Operator, Senior; Nick Hwang, Actor, Professor

This video is called Blacksite Theta Coming Soon. This video was one of the Marketing Team’s promotional videos that was posted to social media platforms in order to promote the game Blacksite Theta. This video was a shift from the “real life” content into the revelation that Blacksite Theta is simply a video game. This project was really enjoyable to work on, and I hope to use some of the skills gained from this project in my future career as a video, and potentially film, editor.

I want to get into motion graphics/sprites with a cutesy art style. This semester I came up with this 2D piece.

Students earn credit with our Game Jams course held multiple times a semester.

Students design their own senior projects. Kalei shows her UI/UX design to Dean Hayes.

Our students can gain experience making games in virtual reality. 

Our students also gain experience creating games for alternative controls. Luke and Nicole are showing off their mid-air haptic feedback rhythm game.

Motion capture can bring your VR, AR, Motion Graphic to life. We have a new suit- and marker-based system.

Our annual summer camp brings in future students from 8th grade to seniors in high school to campus for a week of game development.

Nathan creates sound and audio for games. Courses in electronic music help make that happen.

Students can bring their own drawing tablets or check out equipment for their use.
