Meaghanne, Dylan, and Eli made an animated music video for a song they wrote called “Constellations”.

“Ice and Fire”: Dylan Jonas and Vincent Terraneo

Oct 05, 2020

Dylan and Vincent made a music visualizer called “Ice and Fire”. The first part of the song is mellower, like “ice”, and the second half is more intense, like “fire”. Vincent picked out the audio and edited the video, Dylan drew those sick dragons and I think more but honestly it’s midnight and I’m tired.

“Two’s Company, Three’s A Crowd”: Kyla Ramos, Amy Vargas, and Eli Gemeinhardt

Oct 05, 2020

After some behind-the-scenes shake-ups, IMMovation 2 found itself with a group of 3 in Kyla, Amy, and Eli. They immediately made the connection to the phrase “two’s company, three’s a crowd” and made it their central theme. They connected that phrase to the game Among Us, with the idea of two crewmates and one imposter. […]

“Means A Lot”: Ben Spizuco and Mistee Branchek

Oct 05, 2020

Ben and Mistee…uh…started a band. Mistee had recorded some instrumentals with a 2-string bass (their interpretation of the “2” theme) and Ben started to add more instrumentation and vocals to flesh them out more. Their band is Belted Kingfisher and this is their first song.

“Welsh Mythology Shield”: Miles Cumiskey and Rebecca Harris

Oct 05, 2020

Miles and Rebecca made a shield design based on figures from Welsh mythology. (editor’s note: I do not remember their names. Expect a correction from Miles when he sees this and gets frustrated with me.) Their interpretation of the “2” theme was in the difference of their art styles.

“Two Of Us”: Thendral Prabu and Ana Green

Oct 05, 2020

Thendral and Ana made a text game in Twine. Their interpretation of the “2” theme was clones, and when pondering who would utilize clones, they came up with clones, so it’s an interactive story about clones and aliens.   Game here: Two_of_Us1

Oct 05, 2020
