Under the auspices of the Facebook Comic-Con (a free virtual convention occurring through the architecture of Facebook), Night of the Living Dead: Reanimated (NOTLD:R) will be screening in its entirety from November 12th-15th.
Here are the details:
For this screening the NOTLD:R event page on Facebook (typically just used to announce the time and place of real world events) doubles as the venue, and those “attending” the event will be able to view the entire feature-length project for free from the comfort of their own homes… well before its official release.
As a reminder, NOTLD:R is a video-based art show. Artists, illustrators, and animators from around the world were invited to select scenes from the original film and make them their own. With no restrictions on style, media, or process, the resulting works ranged from oil paintings to comic illustrations and sock puppets to digital animation. These works were then curated into a visual track of artwork and set to the audio of George A. Romero’s masterpiece, Night of the Living Dead. (Note: It is recommended that anyone who has not seen the original ‘Night of the Living Dead’ watch it prior to seeing ‘Night of the Living Dead: Reanimated’ as some of the styles are rather abstract.)
NOTLD:R is not meant to replace the original film but rather to supplement your viewing experience by allowing you to see the film through the eyes and hands of these talented individuals. It was solely a labor of love done by and for fans of the original film. It has not touched a penny during its production and will not be taking any money in profits from the work. For even more information, visit the official NOTLD:R site. For additional info on Facebook Comic-Con, click here.
Following this project, Neoflux Productions is turning a similar approach to creating animated/illustrated visual tracks to be paired with old-time horror radio dramas entitled Unseen Horror.
