Marcus Morgan is visual artist specialising in photographic/2D/3D content creation. Originally providing animated content for TV and film, his reach has now expanded into content creation for live projection-mapping projects as Morgan Laboratories.
Recent work includes complete content and animation design for Heart of Auckland / Auckland Council’s Matariki celebrations over the last two years. In July 2016 He animated multiple works from New Zealand urban contemporary artist Janine Williams, which made up the bulk of a projection onto the iconic St James Theatre in Auckland. This was followed in 2017 by an all-encompassing project for Whetu Marama, a majestic projection on the Auckland Town Hall.
The projection show featured artwork from Ngati Manuhiri artists Star, Aroha and Ra Gossage along with illustrations from their late storyteller father, Peter Gossage, all of which was brought to life with modern 2D and 3D animation techniques.
Marcus has been working with AUM Productions from the outset and is currently providing technical expertise and support for their various VJ’s and artists in addition to displaying his own original animated work, including 2D and 3D animations generated in stunning Chromadepth™ , for upcoming events including DEEP FOREST & GAUDI and THE WIZARD OF AUM 2017 NYE extravaganza.
