Burning Earth Productions began with a YouTube Channel created by Chris Kroznuski around 2008. At first learning how to create machinima-style videos, Kroznuski eventually ended up taking it a step further and expanded to creating full-blown CGI films using little more than pre-made assets.
Today, Burning Earth Productions is quickly becoming a hub of new media content for lovers of animation, sci-fi films, video games, visual novels, and a slew of all other kinds of content. The visual novel project Sons of Centauri is serving as their flagship project, with an animated feature, Earth-Link Origins, also currently in post production.
In addition to these projects, Burning Earth Productions also documents video games through several Let's Play series. Because hey, if we're going to be making video games, we gotta know how the best ones work, right?
