My name is Chris Durgin and I'm 23 years old, and a recent graduate of Salisbury University in Maryland with a major in Communication Arts in the track of Media Studies, and a minor in Art. I have worked as a production assistant on films such as SafeHouse, and HBO's Game Change, and have also filmed numerous Perdue chicken advertisements.
I am a creative person and I have been drawing and writing my whole life. I recently began animating (2D) using Adobe Flash CS5 and in my first twelve months acquired 50,000+ views and many fans worldwide. Over this past summer I created my first cartoon series “EarthWorld” and the pilot episode has massed over 24,000 views in only two months on YouTube, which has so far been my career apex, but I am willing to put it on the back burner for the right full time job in the industry. Just recently (September 2013), I was contracted to work for See Beneath Inc., and help develop the first season of their series “Aiko & Egor”, which is a Flash cartoon created for children with autism.
My dream is to someday work in an animation studio as a director, writer, or animator. My uncle is Kirk Mueller who was a famous WB artist, and I have spent time with him learning about character design and animating. However my short-term goal is to learn more about the business, how it runs, and how I can contribute to it best at any position!
