Hi, I’m Ross.

My main interest is in games, storytelling, and wordplay. In my final project I was able to work on making my own video game, PenPal.

On showcase are some of my favourite pieces I made during the course.

(Video) Foundation Course Compilation

Films made for the moving image section of the foundation course, including:

  • PenPal game trailer (00:00 – 01:02).
  • Paper Skull (01:15 – 02:02) – Stop motion animation about a paper skull meeting someone new.
  • Mars Mites (02:03 – 03:20) – Hand drawn animated parody regarding a peculiarly fragranced deodorant.
  • PenPal full playthrough (Spoilers for PenPal) (03:21 – 16:09).

(Image One) Storyboard project

A storyboard based on the train scene from the script of the movie “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”.

(Image Two) Block Printing Typography

Posters focused on a “Call to Action” regarding climate change. Made using ink and typography blocks.

(Image Three) Human Meteor collages

Collages inspired by the “Human meteor” block printing posters.

(Image Four) Altered Book project 

An altered book (Children of the Oregon Trail). The design was based on a line in the book – “He saw at once that it was a splendid camping place”.

(Image Five) PenPal main cast and game screenshots

A collection of images from my final major project, PenPal, which is a stationery inspired video game about a mobile inkwell finding their pen pal. The game was made using Unity, the graphics were designed using Piskel online and I created the music using GarageBand IOS.
