Night of The Living Dead: Reanimated Virtual Premiere


Debuting as part of Facebook Comic-Con

Seems like there’s always a few Night Of The Living Dead projects in the works. One that we reported on a while back was Night Of The Living Dead: Reanimated, an on-line presentation of artists taking scenes from George Romero’s classic and ‘reanimating’ them through processes ranging from CGI to puppetry and oil paintings to tattoos.

When can you see it? It’s screening now between November 12-15th, 2009 as part of the Facebook Comic-Con (a free virtual convention occurring through the architecture of facebook).

For this screening the event page 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 it’s official release. The project is now live and will remain online until November 15th, at which time, it will be taken down thus ending the screening event.

Hit up the Facebook page right here.

More about the project:

Night of the Living Dead: Reanimated 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‘.

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.

NOTLD:R was 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.
