Choleric Vision is a VR horror game that uses the player’s heart rate to pace the game’s tension and overall atmosphere. It is a study in dynamic horror experiences, and game pacing. This project was created by a team of 5 BIT IMD students (myself included) at Carleton University over the course of a year [April 2016 – April 2017].
This project was overseen by our project coordinator Professor Rob Teather.
As team lead it was my role to establish a work model, version control, art pipeline, and run basic project management as well as fill in for any roles that were needed as per our Agile style organisation.

This is a short VJ (music visualization) created using a live gif corruption and manipulation tool demoing my first few daily animations. Most of my work in VJ is done over the course of a week or so spent in After Effects so this was my first attempt at trying to create visuals live with a running track.
