Thanks for the feedback. Inspiring as feedback always is on this site.
I run a poser community site called PoserCity.com, so yes all the zombies in the movie will be created from Poser. The thing is that there were actual actors in sweatsuits shot for all the zombies. I had a hired a professional animator to do them in a combination of maya and poser 5 but he ultimately dropped my project because a bigger paying one came along.
So, at this point, I'm left animating them myself, cutting out the actors and compositing. It's slow tedious work but I am determined to finish it. It is kind of a gimic film intended for Poser users.
There is a story though not a terribly original one. The guy, Zombie Hunter's family is killed or it's implied they've been killed by zombies. There are a grand total of 3 live action actors that appear in the movie. ZH, the sidekick character and some poor smuck who gets his ear bitten off.
I'll try to come up with a better preview as I think most of your critic was fair, apart from the assinine remark about the music being "absolutley atrocious". Now if Matt was saying it was a poor choice for the preview that's different. But that album got rave reviews and that song in particular (the title track Typical Illusion)garnered more priase than anything else on the record.
I agree makeup fx on real actors could look better easily, but this was sort of a gimic film and without Poser being involved it would have no meaningful connection to my community site.
You know, I realize that this is no "Shock Troopers" or "The Test". Then again, it's not two guys running around with light sabers or dressed up like Neo and dodging bullets. See my point?
Ultimately, I hope to have custom music and a more professional sound design layer added. Oh yeah, the shadows on the zombies has been added but just ddin't make it into the clip. If you'll note the ones walking in from the field had individual shadows just not the ones by the barn.
Thanks for your constructive feedback.
