About Burning Earth Productions


My name is Chris Kroznuski (though you might also know me as Burning Earth Chris), and I'm a 3D animator and visual effects artist. I am most famous for making the USS Enterprise appear over my Wal-Mart several years back.

Visual effects and animation are two of my biggest passions, and I'm working extremely hard to turn those passions into a career as a visual storyteller; when I'm not doing animation work, I like to play sci-fi themed video games.


I started to learn 3D animation around 2008, during my years in high school -- I needed something to help me escape the dregs of daily life, and learning visual effects and animation proved to be a pivotal turning point in that regard.

During and after graduating college, I recruited a small team to help launch our flagship project, Earth-Link Origins. It has been a long time working on it, but we are set to release it in the form of a 20-minute Prologue in a couple of years. I have also started work on a second, smaller project -- a visual novel and (potential) animated series called Sons of Centauri, with a yet-to-be-determined release date; finally, I have created a few Let's Play Series and Tutorials for Visual Effects Artists to help them hone their skills, and to show beginners (or those simply interested in the process) how it's done.

The aforementioned film and video game projects have come quite far in development and production,
but I'm starting to get to the point where I need some additional help to complete them. I can do my Let's Play Series for free and with no budget, but it takes a lot to make a sci-fi movie or a sci-fi video game from the ground up -- you need a team, you need artists, you need cast and crew, and above all else, you need money. That's where Patreon comes in.


I am currently working a full-time job to pay my room and board in addition to the people on my projects, and while I like my current day job, it's not necessarily something I want to do forever. Working this full time job doesn't leave much breathing room for doing animation work -- it often takes hours, sometimes days, to create one single CGI shot about several seconds long. Your support for the Patreon will allow me to produce more animations at a faster, more rapid pace, and will also allow me to support the teams I've assembled for each project.


  • Living Expenses - Room and board, food, internet, etc.
  • Team Support - Support those who are lending their skills to help in my projects.
  • Computer Hardware & Software - Occasional upgrades to my current PC which will allow me to do more work faster.
  • Travel Expenses - Occasional travelling to conventions to showcase some of the work I'm doing. If you're a patron and I see you there, I'll buy you a drink!


All donors will receive automatic access to our Patreon feed; in addition, each donor will receive something extra depending on how much you donate per month:

  • Shining Mercury ($1 USD/Month) - Special Thanks in all future videos published! All credits will be listed in alphabetical order.
  • Raging Venus ($5 USD/Month) - Special Thanks & Digital Download of all future videos published!
  • Burning Earth ($10 USD/Month) - Special Thanks, Digital Downloads of all future videos published, and the opportunity to have a say in what kind of projects we tackle next, whether they are video games, tutorials, or an idea for something even bigger! Limit of 5.


  • Earth-Link Origins - Our flagship project, with a team consisting of 26 cast and crew. An animated ensemble sci-fi series set 2,000 years into the future, Earth-Link Origins chronicles the interstellar war between the benevolent Earth Empire and the vengeful Morningstar Pirates, while a third, unseen power pulls the strings between them. Visit the website here!
  • Sons of Centauri - A visual novel set in the realm of Anima, Sons of Centauri chronicles a group of four mercenaries who take on jobs across space, ranging from transporting cargo to assassinating key political figures and everything in between. Currently in pre-production. Website in development.
  • Let's Play - Done by many popular YouTubers, a Let's Play is essentially a documentary of a video game. Players play a video game and comment as the game is being played. I hope to bring several others with me over the course of making future LP's.


Thank you for your time. Thank you for your support. Thank you for your donations, if you can give them. And above all else, thank you for checking out the Patreon!

Goals
$9 of $100 per month
WE'RE JUST GETTING STARTED!

If all of our Patrons donate a combined amount of $100 USD per month, we'll be able to invest some time into one or two extra live streams per month.
