Purple Cliffs

In my last post, I mentioned that I had been trying to learn Unity, and I realised that I have never actually shown anything that I made in that engine. So here’s something. It’s very short and doesn’t really have any story but I had fun making the shaders and animating the character in Blender. If you want to try it, you can download it below.

Bug Count

I’ve been working on a new coding project this month. Here’s a new game I made for the TeenyTiny DragonRuby MiniGameJam. All you have to do is count how many bugs (green squares) are on the screen and click on the correct answer. It’s very simple but it does get progressively harder the more you get answers correct.

Nirvana Mall

While in lockdown, I took part in a 24 hour playwriting challenge organised by Emberfly Theatre. The theme they gave us was ‘Utopia’. I had 12 hours to write a short monologue based around that theme before it was given to an actor to perform on camera. My monologue, Nirvana Mall, was performed by Hannah Abbott, one of the founders of Emberfly and a wonderful actress. I’m really happy to see the finished results for this little project. You can find the rest of the recorded monologues on Emberfly’s Facebook page.

New banner by Alayna Butterfly

Since I came out as transgender, I’ve felt that my old header image by Abbigayle Bircham no longer fit who I am as a person, so I’ve had a new banner which I commissioned from artist and video game developer Alayna Butterfly. (@fluttergirly on Twitter) I really liked the original consept and I’m glad that I was able to get something similar.

For the last few weeks, I’ve been working with this lovely and inclusive group of people on a unique little show, partly during the Camden Fringe Festival where it was nominated for an Offie award. Space Age Love Songs by TL Wiswell is a jukebox dance and theatre show with drag performances, LGBTQ+ romance and plenty of 80s New Wave Sci-Fi.

It’s no fun being a Mandroid when your dream is to be a diva. And it’s no fun being a goth, or queer, in an American high school in 1984. But Daniel wants to be a drag queen, while Cami imagines a futuristic dystopia where they both can be free. Together, they will fight the darkness. A new wave coming of age story with a thumping disco heart.

Scenic Reality Production Shots

I’m really happy with how our 2019 Camden Fringe production of Scenic Reality has turned out. We’ve all been working so hard to bring this show to the stage and I’m really proud of our cast for putting so much work into realising their characters. This is definitely not the last we’ll be working on Scenic Reality but for now, here’s a collection of production shots. (All photographs were taken by me.)
