Lovesick Are The Damned

I've been investigating a lot of animation platforms over the past two months and, so far, Moviestorm has become the best of the bunch, providing the most value for the least amount of money. Over the course of about six hours, I was able to learn the Moviestorm interface and put together a simple two-and-a-half minute movie.

Zombie films are incredibly popular these days, so it was an easy decision for me to choose an animated zombie movie as my first Moviestorm project. The developers have given fans of zombie movies a large amount of sets, characters and zombie animations that unlocks some amazing potential in prospective zombie film makers.

Lovesick Are The Damned is a timeless tale of love, loss and the zombie apocalypse. One of the great things about using Moviestorm for this project was the ability of the characters to convey emotion through their facial expressions. Bearing in mind, of course, that, in zombie movies, emotion comes from the uninfected people, not the zombies themselves. I was hoping to get an emotional response by simply using music and expressions instead of relying on voice work. Hopefully, amidst the backdrop of the zombie apocalypse, the emotional stuff comes out.

  1. Excellent first movie using Moviestorm and thanks for the nice things you said about Moviestorm. I use a lot of different programs for animation but I prefer Moviestorm and now with being able to make my own animated characters and props and importing them into Moviestorm, it is now unlimited.
