More About Transient by Justin Coro Kaufman; Kim Du; Melissa Lee
 
 
 
Overview

"Transient Man" is a black comedy about a homeless man whose visions lead him to believe he is an inter-dimensional savior of humanity, on a mission to save the universe. Is he indeed the "one," chosen by mystical divine forces to embark on a crusade against ultimate evil, or a hopeless lunatic, aimlessly wandering the streets of San Francisco? "Transient Man" is a spoof on the hero's journey that's part "Men In Black," part "Raising Arizona," flavored with liberal portions of "Ghostbusters" and John Steinbeck. It is a ballad to the city by the bay, and a heartfelt take on the sacrifices one man will make for the love of his family, his friends, and all of humankind.

Justin Coro Kaufman serves as the studio art director for Massive Black. Working professionally for the past fifteen years, Justin's skill set initially led him to a lead artist and concept design position for an Activision developer in 2002. Since helping found Massive Black in 2003, he has lent his visualization and design skills to hundreds of Massive Black projects, ranging from high profile games ("Infamous" and "Bioshock"), television and print advertising ("Desperate Housewives" and "Dancing With the Stars"), film ("Transformers" "1," "2," and "3," and "G.I. Joe 1" and "2"), toy design, clothing, album jacket and poster design, graphic novels, and more. His multidisciplinary portfolio of work has enabled him to be a valuable asset to Massive Black's design and pre-production arm. In some capacity, Justin has worked and supervised almost every concept design project that has passed through the Massive Black studio doors. He is also a well-known teacher, instructing art at various workshops and universities worldwide, including Berlin, Amsterdam, Montreal, Prague, and New Zealand.
