A Simple AS3 Platformer
Hypno–ball was the first platformer I ever made. It’s a simple game you play using the arrow keys. Try to navigate your character, the Hypno–ball, to the finish of each stage. The inspiration for the graphics came from classic NES games—a bit of psychodelia, a bit of randomness.
A Simple AS3 Game
The challenge with Star Dodger was to see how quickly I could code and design (though I use the word “design” lightly in this case—very lightly) an entire small game. For the most part it took about a day, give or take. Mind you, it‘s a very simple game. Use the cursor to guide your rocket ship left or right. Avoid the stars. See how far you can get.
A Game Prototype in Processing.js
Rebound is a very simple game prototype that I created using Processing.js. The premise of the game is simple: draw a line on the bottom half of the screen to bounce the white ball toward the red “target” ball. Originally, the idea was to make this my first iPhone project (which I’ve been working on), but I figured why not take this opportunity to play with the new release of Processing.js 1.0. It’s incredible what you can do with a modern browser. (Game requires latest Chrome, Safari or Firefox.)
Hollie Latulippe, Journalist
Portfolio Site in AS3
This Flash–based website was programmed in Actionscript 3 and intended to be accompanied by a resume of the same visual style and design. The purpose is to show the client’s past work in journalism in a professional and creative way. The solution was a hand–coded original navigation system that allows users to zoom in and out and scroll through articles.

A Flash Website
All of the animations in this site were done dynamically through AS3.
An AS3 Sound Synth Toy
The Tone Scribbler is a small Flash toy I built using Joe Berkovitz’s StandingWave2, which is an open source AS3 sound engine. It was something that I wanted to do in order to learn more about how Flash can generate its own tones without loading external sound files. How it works: doodle on drawing area and press play. The program translates the pixels from your doodle into tones, going from left to right.
NHL Data Vis
I’m a big hockey fan and a big Processing fan. So why not combine the two. During last year’s Playoffs, I decided to create some data visualizations based on NHL stats. Works from the likes of Brendan Dawes and Jer Thorpe have been getting a lot of recognition lately in the realm of design and computer generated art. Data vis has always intrigued me, so I figured why not give it a shot.

Flash Website for a Punk Band
This was actually the first Flash website I ever made. It was for a punk band called Self Obscure. I thought it’d be fun to animate the cover of their album with a particle effect that looks like bloody vomit (not everyone thinks it’s as humorous as me). The background image flickers to the beat of the music. If you turn the music off, it just goes dark. The “News” section and “Tour” section are loaded from the XML of a Wordpress site, for easy updates.
