Below are details from the official Anim’Est Film Fest Website about the event:

CREEPY ANIMATION NIGHT 2018

The 10th edition of the Creepy Animation Night showcases a marathon of bizarre and horror animations, with the newest titles of the genre, in an event that thrills the senses and the imagination. 

We start the horror screening at midnight, in two venues of the festival, Cinemateca Eforie and Cinema Elvire Popesco. The selection is made up of three blocks of films, with two intermissions.

In Cinemateca Eforie, the screening is preceded by the first performance of OrkiPP – an audio-visual project bringing together illustrator Alexandru Ciubotariu (akaPisica Pătrată) and the shoegazers Orkid. Starting from common sensations, ideas and images, Orkid and Pisica Pătratăă will do a 40-minute long synchronized improvisation. The post-traumatic blues of Orkid will transform into an instrumental dirge, with drones and complex guitar textures, and post-metal instrumental explosions. The animated symbols making up the visual universe of the band will be the background of the illustrator’s live-drawing, in a concept based on the alternation of symmetry and chaos.

Creepy Animation Night 2

The 13th edition of Anim’est International Animation Film Festival takes place from 28 September to 7 October 2018 in Bucharest, Romania, and its venues are: Cinemateca Eforie, Cinema Elvire Popesco, CINETic Centre, POINT and Expirat.

TRAILER 2 Dialog for Translation:
What the hell? Am I still alive?
No Fred, you’re dead.
So why am I here dammit?
Because of the Stalker. Without him, none of this exists.
Well, it’s not a sword, but it’ll have to do.
Help me please!
Say mister, you see a shoe store around here, my feet are killing me!
Look, Doesn’t she remind you of that nurse?
You want the bridge of Rott, find her!
I need to find Sarah.
I told ya, she’s radioactive, you hang around her, you’ll be dead.
You stay away from her, you hear me?
So what are you gonna do about those brain worms that turned you into an old man long before your time?
If you can show us the way, we’d really appreciate it.
I said the bridge of rott, not the wall of rott!
You think Sarah will ever go for an old geezer like you?
Stay back stalker, these are my friends!
How’d you keep the stalker away?
You’ll find out soon enough.
Too bad she’s almost dead.
She needs help!
Nothing turned out as planned, stuck in a living hell. But you’re not giving up, are you?
Find me a pair of legs and I’ll save her!
It’s what you do that matters, right? Right!
Here’s your leg, how’s Sarah?
This isn’t even the right leg!
Say goodbye to the Otherworld.
Welcome. To the City. The City of Rott. City of Rott! x2
City of Rott!
I just wanna be happy dammit, and there’s no better time than now!
So are you happy?
Ask me after I cross the bridge.

Once the film was 99% complete with all sound effects in place, making the trailer was a lot easier than before, where I would create the trailer as the film was being created and then sound effects had to be added separately to the trailer. This new way saved a lot of time.
Thanks to the City of Rott Fans around the world! The next phase is seeing what options will be available for distributing this movie and getting it out there to the world. It takes time and patience, but I’ll do my best to reach a wide audience if the options are available.

 

 

City of Rott 3 Teaser Trailer 2018

Great news from BlackArro Productions, a one man animation studio. The animation process for City of Rott: Otherworld is complete! Now it’s just final editing, sound effects and music to add. Then the next challenge is creating a trailer and marketing the film to earn more fans, as well as finding a film distributor to help it reach blu ray, digital and a wider audience. While 2018 would be great, there is currently no release date set until this next phase begins.

That said, I appreciate all the fan support I’ve received. I have watched the film a few times now and I’m pleased with the way it turned out, very close to my vision and the story I wanted to tell, even before music and sound effects, which help improve the film more so. -Frank Sudol, BlackArro Productions, Sole Creator of City of Rott: Otherworld, City of Rott, City of Rott 2, Dead Fury, Shock Invasion, Tales of the Dim, and more.

 

 

 

 

 

CITY OF ROTT: OTHERWORLD UPDATE!

City of Rott: Otherworld Update! By F. Sudol

With July 2018 underway, I’m just about to finish the final action scene, but still want to add a few extra zombie scenes in there to balance things out for more zombie action, but that won’t take long. Then I’ll edit everything, add sound effects from the sound effects library I made, add the music tracks I finished creating, and make any adjustments needed. But not before creating the 2nd trailer, set for some time in August 2018. In the meantime, here are a bunch of new still frames from the movie! Stay tuned! 🙂   -FSudol

Animafest Zagreb 2018 City of Rott

At the 2018 Animafest in Croatia, Tuesday, June 5, 2018, City of Rott was on the schedule of animated films at the major film festival celebrating animated pictures. I’m glad to have been a part of it, and wish the best success to the Animafest, which concludes on June 9th. Special thanks to Sanja for requesting City of Rott as part of the major event.

Zombie Head Dissection – For City of Rott: Otherworld

After setting up the .psd file in Gimp (or photoshop if you have it) as shown in the video below, next, I drag/drop the icon of that file directly into Anime Studio Pro (not shown), and then begin the animation of a flying bullet flare breaking apart the rotting skull of the zombie in City of Rott: Otherworld. Total time to animate this slow motion shot is 10 minutes. City of Rott, music and All content by FSudol copyright 2018.

Zombie Head Dissection – For City of Rott: Otherworld. To prepare this zombie for it’s head to be broken apart from a blast from Fred, I bring it into Gimp (like Photoshop), and piece it apart. Then I would bring that into Anime Studio Pro by drag/drop, and work from there, since I can’t edit the bitmap image within Anime Studio Pro as I need to as seen here. The finished animation will make more sense and be more detailed with more blood effects added. Music and content by FSudol. Copyright 2018. All Rights Reserved.
