Okay, so currently Shaderrooster and I are busting our butts on the pre-vis and concept work for this short. So first before we start uploading any art, here's the script for our short. Be warned, it's a decently long read. All C&C is welcome and encouraged. Also, we haven't come up with "proper" names for the characters yet, so they are simply referred to as Hero, Sidekick, and Love Interest. Thanks.



Hero is sitting on his couch franticly studying the zombie survival guide, flipping through pages in a rush and looking around in a paranoid manner.


Life is tough, we've always been told to follow the system, but look where it's gotten us. It's a dog-eat-dog world after all, well, let me rephrase that, It's a zombie eat Us(this word is stressed and held longer) world out there.

Once the Narrator says out there we see a zombie hand come in from right frame off screen and pushes the play button on a cassette player and zombie audience noise begins to sound. Zombie moans and feet shuffling noises are heard. Narrator voice over continues after play button has been pushed.


And if you haven't read my book, well(unconcerned)...then you're as good as dead...


As the Hero continues to read the survival guide, we see the camera dolly out to outside the room via his bedroom window. As we are now looking into the room from the outside we see zombies trying to force themselves in through the basement window.


We see the Title in 3D letters "Revenge of the Lost Radioactive Candy-Corn Zombies" As the camera slowly dolly's in zombies begin to run across the screen and over the letters until the whole screen is covered with them. The zombies act as a screen wipe transition to the next scene.




We see several cuts of the Hero running. His feet hitting the stair, Hero looking back to see what's behind him, close up on Hero's face to show the strain of running. These shots are cut quickly as to convey a sense of speed and urgency. Finally the camera shows a wide shot of the Hero running in
place on a stairwell going absolutely nowhere.


Rule number 26, when trying to escape from a horde of zombies, never run in place.

We see zombies hanging on rails and walking towards the Hero ready to feast.


The camera shows a side view of Sidekick arm wrestling a zombie on his school desk. The desk is ridiculously tiny compared to Sidekick.

Camera cuts to medium full shot showing Sidekick beating the zombie and breaking his entire arm off. Zombie falls off screen with agony and pain.

Camera cuts to a medium close up of Sidekick. Sidekick has a smirk on his face as he holds his prized ripped-off arm squirting blood.


Rule number 44, Never arm-wrestle zombies at school.

Camera cuts to full wide shot of Sidekick sitting at his desk. His expression suddenly changes when zombie arms suddenly start flying/jumping all over the place in his direction. Sidekick starts fighting back using the detached zombie arm.

As the camera dolly's back we see a normal person(candycorn/crew person) shooting the zombie arms out of a portable T-shirt canon. The crewman looks directly at the camera, looks surprised and then puts the canon on his back(it has a shoulder strap) and grabs a mop from off screen. Crew Person then begins to clean up the arms while whistling nonchalantly.


Camera cuts to a medium close up, top view, of Love Interest lying on a sofa bed.

Camera cuts to over the shoulder shot where we see a zombie entering through the conveniently open window.

Camera cuts to medium full shot showing Love Interest hitting the Zombie repeatedly with a pillow. Zombie just takes the blows as if he was being hit by, well, a pillow.


Rule number 69, Never try to kill off zombies with a pillow.

We see a hand enter the frame in the lower left throwing feathers at the zombie. The frame pans slightly to the left revealing the same crew person holding a bucket throwing feathers. The zombie turns around and begins attacking the crew person. In the confusion Crew person throws his bucket
at the camera, blood and feathers fill the screen. The blood and feathers provide transition as they wipe down.




We see medium close up of Hero holding dual glocks, spinning them in his hands. Angular photo-flash with Hero name and graphical elements behind him(think borderlands intro)Flash

We cut to Sidekick revving up his chain saw as he brings the saw up we see a devilish grin as his photo-flash happens. Flash ends.

We cut to Love Interest holding a pillow. Camera cuts to Hero and Sidekick looking at Love Interest with a "are you serious" expression on their faces. Love Interest looks at the pillow and gets an embarrassed look on her face. She drops the pillow off screen and then picks up a sniper rifle
from off screen. She holds it in a "sexy" pose as her photo flash happens. Flash ends.

Camera cuts to a wide shot dollying out slowly. We see all three characters standing in front of the house facing towards the camera. Suddenly we see zombies running up to the characters. Before the zombies even make it to the characters the camera freeze frames and we flash to the movie poster.

Cut to black

Dont forget! Shotgun for the girl in the end! Let me know if you guys need help with this. After I'm done with my image in 3 weeks, I'll be free.
  02 February 2010
I like it! The facial expressions in your concept art are cool! Is the animation going to be 2D or 3D?
  02 February 2010
Aimanimation - Don't worry, we didn't forget, the love interest is getting a shotgun, thanks for that idea man. Also, hit us up in 3 weeks once your done with you Image submission, I'm sure we might have some prop models or textures that will still need to be finished.

Dkirkland - Thanks man, glad you like the characters. The animation is going to be 3D, in fact, I've already started creating the character models. The WIP for the models will be uploaded in a couple days. We're really trying to make sure that the style, art direction, and charm of our 2D concepts is preserved in our 3D work.

Love the concepts. I wish I was there for the critique night to provide input, but alas currently in India with a customer.

I'll do my best to provide input for you all on the forums.
