View Full Version : 7AM and Zombies!

01 January 2010, 02:37 AM

'7AM&Zombies' is my short film that served as my final project towards obtaining my Bachelors Degree (graduated December 2009). The whole thing (concept to completion) took approximately 15 weeks of part time work.

The majority of the work was completed in 3DS Max and After Effects.
I wanted to explore the cliché zombie genre in a slightly different way, I'd love to hear any feedback you have,

I enjoyed that - the thumbnail picture alone made me smile first thing in the morning. I like the concept, the idea and the little zombie plushies too although the animation was a bit too rigid at times. Great job though overall!

Would love to see more from you in future.

Pretty cool little short.

The characters are pretty cute! The animation needs a bit of work; like maybe more range of motion for the characters

Cool animation. The chainsaw bit was funny but too bad it looks like little dude is going to get it lol.

Good short, funny, and good lighting and texturing. However, if you are doing animation, I would suggest you provide weight to the runs and walks, put more bend in the spines of the zombies so they lurch forward and when he sees the zombie add quick breath. When he brings back the chainsaw, show weight in the arms as he carries it and kind of heave it into the zombie so it shows real impact. For one of the zombies have him crawling on the floor at the end. It will add diversity to the scene and you will really like the results. But really good job. I really like the lighting, and the characters.
