The Thing - Title Sequence from Krystian Morgan on Vimeo.
Title Sequence for the John Carpenter movie. Still not entirely sure what i think about this video, i’ve worked harder on it that anything else i’ve ever done, and i do know that it’s the best thing that i’ve done so far, but i spent so long in and out of love with the project, i can’t really look at it much anymore…

There’s two versions, this is the shorter of the two, this ones a bit more cleaner-cut than the other, and there’s a section in the other video that seems a bit out of place (i’ll have to get a second opinion).
I wanted to encapsulate a very visceral and foreboding image. So i took the tactile approach of renting a HDV camera and shooting some close-ups of various organic matter, taking many photographs of slimy textures to incorporate together into the short.
I personally think the still frames below are stronger than the video itself, would really love to hear your thoughts on it, since only three people including myself have seen the final prior to posting now.
Thanks to Rupert, for suggesting doing ‘The Thing’ as this project, and also Chris my tutor for really helping me out with ideas and motivating me, because i got tired with working on it alot.
Music by me.
Can’t wait to make something better.
