This was my senior film project for college (I majored in film production and minored in animation.) This film was completed in the fall of 2007. I hope you will leave a comment, letting me know what you think. Positive or negative, excited or uncertain. ANY feedback is of value and interest to me. Thanks for watching.

Concept Sketches:

Behind The Scenes:

Most of the film was shot on a soundstage where we built a big platform, dressed it like a demolished city, and had rock monsters battle on top of it. My friend Will Hyler headed the building of the platform. In the process he also took the initiative to make this awesome time lapse of the whole four days of production on the soundstage:

Back then, the working title of the film was “Dawn of The Monoliths.” I later changed the title because that title makes no sense when you consider that this movie is really more about the end (or dusk) of the stone giants, and that those giants are made out of more than one stone (mono+lith meaning ‘single stone.’)

The Metamorpholith costume was pretty brutal. It was heavy, hot, ungainly, and hard to see out of. It was built hastily, and as a result was a generally cumbersome and uncomfortable thing. Needless to say, we were elated when we wrapped principal photography on Metamorpholith. Will Hyler was standing in at that point and the smooth dance stylings you see in the above video are willhundredpercent his.

Here is quick video JJ Conway shot of Josh Goldman trying out the Metamorpholith costume for the first time:
