'WAX' a novel by Phil Duncan - Book Trailer

I had a lot of fun making this, it’s my first real foray into 3D animation and has really boosted my confidence/excitement in the medium going forward.

Preorder the book here: WAX @ RainTown Press
Some info for the tech-eys:

Modelled in Cinema 4D & ZBrush
Animated in Cinema 4D
Composited in After Effects
Edited in Premiere Pro
Scored in Garageband (yep) using a ‘Blue’ baby bottle and a Martin 000-M.

Ranger Web - Intro Animation from Krystian Morgan on Vimeo.

Ranger Web - Intro

Intro movie for the Ranger Web DotNetNuke screencast series at www.DNNRanger.com.

Music not by me.

This will be the last but one short intro movie that I’m gonna publish for a while. After the next video it’s going to be back to the weird, crazy and nonsensical shorts that I want to make. Expect possible even some live action short narritives in the future which will be produced alongside creating my animated feature. To keep my video sharp.

Yoast - Intro Animation from Krystian Morgan on Vimeo.

Yoast Screen Cast Intro

Here is an intro video i produced for the new Yoast Screen Casts. The first episode went live recently so i thought i’d post it up. The video introduces the general concept of Yoast.com and the new screen casts, improving your site = more traffic. Capping off with a 3d logo animation and colourful light – background.

Today’s the 27th of August 2010, which is an important day for me.. as it is a year since committing to making my feature film. I’m at a place with it at the moment where everything is going to plan, and i will start hitting it full steam ahead after the script consultation. I’d like if possible to get the character/location designs and voice actor recordings all done by 2011. It’s a bit ambitious.. but we’ll see how it goes. Stay tuned for the new film site launching on October 1st this year. It will promise to have alot of cool updates with a minimum of 1 post a week (likely more on certain weeks though). This year and the next should be fun.

My Interview at ArtoftheTitle.com

Krystian Morgan interview at artofthetitle.com

I was contacted in January, asked if i’d be interviewed for ArtoftheTitle.com regarding my title sequence for John Carpenter’s ‘The Thing’.¬†Of course i accepted, it’s one of my favourite design sites and i often visit when i’m in a slump looking for reference and inspiration from all the great title sequences that exist.

I’m really blown over by it, it’s great motivation to continue doing what i’m doing. I hope one day to be half as good as some of the prior interviewees which includes Kyle Cooper and Danny Yount, which are prime inspiration for me choosing Motion Graphics as a focus in the first place.

Check it out the interview here.

The Thing Video at Qemic is here.
