Tacoma from Fullbright

Tacoma

Tacoma is the latest game from the Portland-based studio Fullbright. The game builds upon the narrative centered innovation of their debut, Gone Home, adding new layers of story delivery and interactivity. I had the honor of being a part of the making of the game, creating a song for the fictional boy band On3 V3in. 

The song is now available to stream and download on Bandcamp! Link is embeded right here! ->

Video

Ultra Choice Newsroom

Ultra Choice Newsroom is my new YouTube series where I talk about technology, culture, media, and more. For this project I created a virtual set in 3DSMax. I then filmed myself on a greenscreen and recorded separate audio with a lav mic. I comped the footage in After Effects to place myself in the virtual set. After that I went into premiere and masked out the screen of the virtual TV which allowed me to place images and video on the screen next to me. After creating a soundtrack and finalizing the edit, which includes the intro I created with 3D models I made in Max and moving titles in After Effects, I rendered the final output, which you can see here: 

New episodes will be embedded in the Newsroom section of this site. 


Werewolf by Nuclear Grizzly

Video for Nuclear Grizzly's Werwolf.

Notes on the video from Dylan: Nuclear Grizzly is my solo music project. This video was created by myself with the help of Nicole Findley, Frankie Natho, and Maxwell Everett. Frankie and I star in a story of friendship and the supernatural. 


Try Hard (2017)

A short film by Shannon Neale, Nicole Findley, and Dylan Paris. Starring: Shannon Neale, Hayley Mandel, Cameron Lee Price, Dylan Paris, Kim Louise Rollon, and Nicole Findley. Based on a true story by Shannon Neale. Soundtrack by Dylan Paris.

I co-wrote, co-stared, directed, edited, and composed the soundtrack for this short film. The music is written to reflect the punk-garage style aesthetics of the short. Had a lot of fun on this one.

About: 

Between 2013 and 2016 I released music under the name Paris Stephens. During that time I released four albums: "Pilgrim", "Twenty Thirteen", "STAY HONEST", and "Machine Boy". I learned a lot and grew a lot as an artist during this time, but decided to go back to using Nuclear Grizzly after a name change and a shift in direction.
