This is a sizzle reel for my first "illustrated film" Godkiller: Walk Among Us. We designed this style prior to the rise (and fall) of motion comics... unlike motion comics this is intended more as a blend of cinema & comics, a new format of sequential art & experimental animation. It got a great response and we're working on the sequel now. (I wrote & directed it, Muckcracker illustrated it.) If you're in North America, you can watch the whole thing on Hulu or Netflix (I'm working on getting it free on YouTube for people outside NA).
This was the first preview scene we released for Godkiller, featuring voice performances by Lance Henriksen (Aliens) and Danielle Harris (Halloween movies).
TOMMY & DR. WEST SCENE
This is a longer Godkiller sequence from the beginning of Walk Among Us. You'll notice how low-fi this is in terms of animation, even lower-fi than a normal motion comic. Besides the fact that Godkiller predated most motion comics, there's a reason why we styled it this way: we were looking to experiment with a marriage of cinema & sequential art (as opposed to motion comics' hybrid of comics & cartoons). We opted to limit the amount of animation and instead rest on the illustrations so you can really absorb them. Instead of driving the pace by animating the visuals, we drive the pace with the audio by building it out like a radio play. The storytelling should work just as well with your eyes closed, but of course then you'd miss out on Muckcracker's magnificent visuals.
