Mystic Timbers

Our friends at Cramer Krasselt brought Carbon onboard early to collaborate on a thrilling, spooky, and fully animated short film for the launch of the mysterious new roller coaster, Mystic Timbers, at Kings Island in Ohio.

Carbon led the creation of the entire Mystic Timbers world and all that exists within it. This included styleframes, animation, and the tone and atmosphere of the short, drawing inspiration from computer games, graphic novels, Disney classics, and the innovative designs from Studio Ghibli.

Our established relationship with CK’s Creative Director David Vaca made for an incredibly streamlined and collaborative process, an incredible opportunity to exercise design, storytelling, pacing, and cinematography, all within the framework of a full CGI production.
