The sinking of the Titanic. A Unity 5 Experience.

This is something I put together to see if I could create an experience of being on board the RMS Titanic.  I created this to coincide with 103rd anniversary of the Titanic disaster.

Here’s a video of the experience:

This is all Unity 5, with realtime global illumination (GI).  This was pretty tricky because I wanted the ship to eventually sink and go beneath the water, but with pre-calculated indirect GI, it was impossible to move the ship into the water.  So what I did, was move the water, onto the ship!  The result is very effective.

Try it out for yourself!  can you survive the sinking? Check it out here.  This is the Unity webplayer, not WebGL.  The WebGL version is coming soon.


“One Day More” FanCast.

This past spring, I put a call out on my Karaoke music channel, KaraokeJoeful, for auditions for singers to participate in the first ever “FanCast” production. The idea was simple: Singers would submit videos of themselves singing parts of the big cast number “One Day More” from Les Miserables, and then I would take those videos, create an audio mix, and a video to go along with it.

It was a fun process, and I got a few hundred auditions, and ended up casting, what I think are brilliant leads.

The final video was a blast to make, and it can be seen here:
