BAD BAD BAD
IT HURTS! WHY DOES IT HURT!?!?!?This is what you call improvisation. I spent forever doing this strata clay project (my first ever) and it was a COMPLETE disaster. Still. I'd wasted all that time and clay making this mess so I had to do something with it. So... I knocked out some bad music on a recorder and then wrote some bad poetry paced to the images, added some filters and I made it look as if I MENT to make something this bad. :) Nice save, me! 900K Quicktime.

Magic Portal

Games
4/97 Beware the 3D Menace!My final project from my 3D class, I'd been bit by a dog and my hand was braced and bandaged when I did this, so it's not my best work. Not to mention, the only copy I had of it was on VHS and I wasn't able to retrieve it from tape until June of 2001, so it's atrocious. Still, there's a couple of nifty moments in it, and it's my only large 3d project. 1.6M Windows AVI with DIV/X 4 codec.
