A cruel hybrid combination of Resident Evil and Dino Crisis…. ZOMBIE DINOSAURS!!
The original opening sequence was made using movie maker and paint… I decided this simply wouldn’t be good enough to make the rest of the animation it was simply too big a project.
So… after a long hiatus, I took to learning how Flash works, and made work on the project. It was broken into three parts, as one long video would take AGGGESSSS! SO I shortened it down into parts so that if I ever did release it, it could keep the public happy. Though I’ve completed the animation process of part 1, the voices still need to be recorded and lip synced. That way the scenes can be properly run at the length they should be, at the moment they only run at about 10 frames each. The shot speed is also 12 frames a second.
The vehicle passing the lamp post sound effect was achieved by using the white noise generator on audacity and then spiking the frequencies every time the lamp post passes then easing down until the next one passes.
This is most of part two. But without speaking parts it’s mostly bleurgh.
I was lazy in the animating of running, which is why I did the dry brush leg movement for the four of them.
The sound effects were taken from the Dino Crisis 1 and 2, as well as counterstrike. I used audacity to record the in game sounds whilst a played them, and then I cut the sounds a needed and filed them.
Interesting tidbit, Sparky was originally a black man named hooch that suffered incredible misfortune. However, due to the colour constraints in the opening with it being in black and white I decided to switch him for an old man 1 day from retirement. In the opening scene he laments about how his pension has just come in, he just got a cottage by a lake with his wife, his daughter just had twins, making him a grandfather, all he has to do is survive this mission and he’ll be retired.
An entire script was written as well which I’ve attached to this blog… I think. Primarily by my friend Jon Buxton, this whole affair was his idea and it wouldn’t be here without him. It is available to read here.
