Zombie Art or Zombie Artpocalypse?

There it is.  The trailer for the upcoming animated zombie feature, Dear Beautiful from filmmaker Roland Becerra.  The incorrect grammar in the titles isn't encouraging but the guy's an artist, not a dictionary.

Based on the film festival short, the feature version of Dear Beautiful will have the same Max Payne style animation while expanding the story a bit:

The sudden appearance of exotic flowers in New Haven spawns an unprecedented epidemic rumored to be the result of a botched experiment by cosmetics giant, V-Zone. Paul and Lauren, a married couple, are caught between the catastrophe and their own troubled relationship when Lauren encounters one of the flowers and becomes infected. As her symptoms worsen, Paul's denial of Lauren's illness puts the couple in grave danger as the city is overrun with infected people, media frenzy, National Guard, protesters and a panicked populace.

While this doesn't seem to be based upon real events, it wouldn't be the first time that documentaries about zombie outbreaks had to be released as fictional horror movies-- if you have inside info, let us know in the comments.  Just remember cartoon zombies don't kill people, real zombies kill people.  Please use precautions if you decide to keep your zombified loved-ones at home. .

The guy who made this taught my landscape oil painting class at Lyme Academy. He's a pretty cool guy, and a good teacher. The animation is different from most, and the short is pretty enjoyable. I'm all ecstatic that Roland's gone through with the feature; can't wait to see it.

I was there

I saw the short at toronto after dark - it was so disturbing!

The feature is going to be intense.
