Tom the Zombie

For my last project in Media in Motion a fellow friend, Nick Shoen, and I created a short film in After Effects about a zombie named Tom who lives in a human civilization. We are very happy with the finished product, though a few changes can still be made.
Using Illustrator, Nick made all the back grounds and animated the second half of the film.
I made all the characters and animated the first half of the film.
All the zombie groans and moans are done by Nick.
The intro song is Overture from the Katamari Damacy soundtrack.
The main song is Blue Blood from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
All the sound effects were either self-recorded or found in a sound effects library.

And just a side note: I am very lucky to have worked with someone like Nick who is very passionate about animation. I hope that I can collaborate with him in the future again.
I'm very excited to be posting the video on my blog :)

  1. That was funny. I love the brains in the frying pan.

  2. Nice!!! AE seems to look a lot smoother than using Flash. I already noticed the difference in zoom and fade in/fade out. You have inspired me to try AE :) After watching your great animation collaboration, makes me miss animating. Hi-Five to you both for a funny short!

  3. thanks for the comments :)
    i'm glad it was enjoyable.

    i forgot to point out that the zombie's green blanket was animated in flash.
    and imported into after effects.

    but other then that... everything else was done in AE.
    AE is great for this style of animation :)
