Welcome to my self-indulgent little page…  A lot of these files are just sitting on my hard drive with nothing to do, so I thought it might be fun to share!  This is a loosely assembled collection of projects that I have created or collaborated on over the years (going all the way back to middle school!).  Some of it is nostalgic and fun, some of it is just funny or embarrassing, and there are some things that I am actually fairly proud of…  Click on a link below to download the file.  Enjoy!

MUSIC COMPOSITIONS

MerryGentlemen.mp3

A sort of funky arrangement of “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” that I created in high school using the computer program “Finale Notepad.”

WeThreeKings.mp3

A pretty standard brass choir arrangement of “We Three Kings.”  Also made during high school.

Kyle_ShortSong.mp3

A short little ditty I also wrote in high school.  I was trying to get the feel of that Charlie Brown piano song…  I can’t decide whether the bass part is annoying or not…

Kyle_SimplePhrase.mid

Remember midi?  This is another simple 8 bar phrase I wrote in high school.  Except this time it’s in the actual midi format!

OutlawedTunes.mid

Another midi file!  This is my attempt to accurately recreate that haunting bagpipe cue from the Braveheart soundtrack…

 

 

 

CHRISTMAS SILLINESS

JingleBells.mp3

&

SilentNight.mp3

These are really stupid versions of a couple of Christmas classics that my college roommates and I recorded on some October evening!  Maybe someone will find these amusing…  :)

 

STOP-MOTION ANIMATION

ThatDarnFly.mov

A short created by my friend Ryan and I one summer during middle school.  We had a bit too much fun with the credits…  They are almost as long as the animation!

Lego_Misc_BestOf.mov

Lego animations recorded using an old-school VHS camcorder!  A few of these have been digitally sped-up for better viewing (I always wanted to do that!)  Some were made by Ryan and I, some are just by me, and there’s also a great little story about a scuba-diver and a shark created by my cousin Becky!

Lego_Fights_BestOf.mov

More Lego movies!  I liked to make them fight, and it gets somewhat gruesome towards the end… Well they ARE made of Legos, so they’re supposed to come apart!  ;)

 

 

 

HAND-DRAWN ANIMATION

2dAnimationCompilation.mov

Some hand-drawn animation I created during my sophomore year at Ringling College.

Animarathon.gif

A 1-panel animated comic that I did for my friend Breena’s awesome comic blog, “Easle Ain’t Easy.”

 

 

 

COMPUTER ANIMATION

LegoDance.mov

Yes, more Legos… But this is one of the first 3D computer animations I ever created!  I think this is from middle school or early high school.  It was modeled and animated (badly) with an old computer program called “Raydream 3D.”

 

 

 

MISCELLANEOUS

AllAboutWhales.mov

This is my 6th grade video report about whales.  It was created using the Super Nintendo “game” Mario Paint.  Enjoy my awkward young voice narration!

 

 

 

GRAPHIC DESIGN

LostInTheCrowd.jpg

This is a fake CD cover (front & back) for a fake band that I made up!  It was an assignment for a college design class, and I used pictures I took from my high school band trip to China.

EgoTrip.jpg

Another obnoxious fake CD cover featuring my friend Tyler!  Hmmm, maybe this website is an ego trip…

 

 

 

OLD DRAWINGS

Leomardo.jpg

&

Michgelgneelo.jpg

These are from my childhood when I loved drawing ninja turtles!  I also didn’t know how to spell…  Anyway, this reminds me of a hilariously stupid animation on youtube:  Baman Piderman
