Speaking of Zombies . . .

Can’t wait for this to hit the doorstep. Here’s the product description straight from the Amazon page:

“Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” features the original text of Jane Austen’s beloved novel with all-new scenes of bone crunching zombie action.

Originally slated for a mid-year release, the pub date was moved up to April 2009 after P&P&Z became an Internet darling while being displayed at the New York Comic Con.

According to Quirk Book‘s official press release:

Interview requests for the living author, Seth Grahame-Smith, have been pouring in along with requests for review copies. The Zombie Readiness Brigade from the University of Chicago even emailed to ask if Seth would visit and speak to their group. Jane Austen remains unavailable for media.

GalleyCat has a nice minute-thirty video of editor Jason Rekulak talking about the buzz.

New Process Animates Night Of The Living Dead

Over at LinkedIn‘s Illustrati group, a gentleman by the name of Christopher Panzner was asking for feedback on his new animation process. Basically, it takes rotoscoping (drawing over live-action performances) to a new level. The first feature getting the Re:Naissance treatment is none other than Romero’s original Night Of The Living Dead.

From Mr. Panzner’s Wikipedia entry: “For the first time ever in the 100-year history of animation, Re:Naissance is inverting the adaptation process by taking existing live-action films and faithfully reproducing them in animation, in a totally original graphic style unique to each film.”

While there’s no solid data on a release date, the Eye For Film site has a nice feature on it.

There are also some examples of the process on good ol’ YouTube. Well worth a look.
