HAHAHA IT'S A MONTH LATE BUT C'EST LA VIE. You do not realise how tempting it was for me to sit on this thing until next year and be like voila XD

Anyway this Halloween trailer has a very vague storyline which goes something along the lines of during Halloween the fabric between Earth and Hell tears open. Nothing really comes through per say other than the fact something starts transforming the denizens of Earth into monsters and such. The only way to halt or reverse the transformation is through the regular consumption of candy.

(And they said sugar was bad for you! :dummy:)

The boys have approximately 24 hours to survive the time period without getting killed or turned after which the fabric should stitch itself back together...maybe.

The makeup to their Halloween costumes is missing throughout the animation. I'm chalking it down to it being washed off due to exertion or because some of it was glow in the dark paint and made hiding in the dark kind of hard lol. IT HAS BEEN THOUGHT THROUGH I HAVE REASONS |D

p.s what programme do you use to finalise the animation after you made the animation on cs3?
because the panning is so good xD and the menu :D 
Reply
:icondarqx:
Darqx Featured By Owner May 30, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Sorry i didn't see this question since you replied to yourself :P
All of it was made in CS3, no other program needed :) The panning was either tweens or frame by frame and the menu was done using actionscript.

There was going to be a bit near the end where Izm was like "uhm guys?" and hold up his hand which was turning black, and .D just takes a running leap on top of him to shove a piece of candy in his mouth before he can turn XD But alas i got lazy near the end =3=

eh, I gave it a try. I'm pretty slack.
I've got a motion comic in the brain, had it for like four years... still haven't finished a single script for one episode, when I bother to get to animation, voicing will be a chore, I still can't figure out what most of my characters will sound like...

THIS ALONGSIDE THE HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2 TRAILER I JUST CANNOT.

Why don't you scout around for voice actors, so you can remove the subtitles and throw the actual voices in there? It's not difficult to do with the experience I've had of putting voices into stuff, and I'm sure people would be willing! You could even get people from dA to send you audio clips of them voicing the characters, I'm sure they would be happy to oblige ;)

Thanks very much :D I was considering it but i don't know what any of them sound like which would make it hard to choose voice actors lol :XD:

Tancossin Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2013
Perhaps you could ask for actors, then listen through and if its anything like the experience I've had, you'll hear one and be like "omg dat iz sooo zeek rite ther", even if it's nothing like what you expected Zeke to sound like :meow:
But ofcourse, it is up to you. It was simply a suggestion from a Hedone fangirl :D

Darqx Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah that is a possibility! I didn't really find a kind of accent for Des's voice until i heard it in a movie lol. Although sometimes i just wish i knew what they sounded like off the bat, everyone else seems to have voices for their characters and mine all just speak in text |D

:icontancossin:
Tancossin Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2014
Or you can make them all talk like Q*bert :D

Finding a voice that suits what you want to hear isn't easy, but like I said, sometimes if you give it a go, you might find a voice that suits the character better than the voice you first thought. You could even ask for voice "auditions" just to play around with stuff maybe for future use. If there's one you really really like then contact the voice actor if you ever feel like doing something with the voice :)

Just wondering, by the way, do you picture the guys with any particular accent? American, British, Aussie? Just wondering, because as far as I know, Hedone is never mentioned to be in any particular country, however I may have missed something, and if so I apologise |D

Lol true that :XD: I'm not sure why i'm so awkward with voice picking, though it got to the stage where when i was making a new character (Eid) i ended up making it so that it couldn't talk at all just so i didn't have to deal with that aspect of it lmao XDD. ONE DAY THOUGH! :iconcoolhemanplz:

I haven't directly mentioned where Hedone High might be, no :XD: Their school is like a weird mash of American, Canadian and Australian schooling systems (i think, there might also be some Japanese style thrown in there but that would have been coincidentally lol), but it's most likely set somewhere in the Northern Hemisphere just for the sheer fact that i draw their seasons as corresponding with up there (eg winter in December, as opposed to down here in Aust where winter is like...July lol).

The three i know for sure is Desmond, Nurse Isla and Wei Ren :) Des has a somewhat British accent, Isla is Jamaican and Ren speaks with a rather Singlish tone.
