CITY OF ROTT: Otherworld First Image!

CORO1stpic

The first image from the planned movie City of Rott: Otherworld can be seen above. Pictured is Fred Figiero and his Walker after the events of City of Rott 1. City of Rott: Otherworld is not a prequel, but a definite step forward into the Otherworld for Fred. The otherworld is a very dangerous place filled with infectious Zombies as will soon be explained. But Fred is about to discover something even more sinister lurking in the shadows of the City of Rott. There are definite consequences to his actions in the Otherworld. I’m definitely excited about this new twist to the City of Rott and the return of Fred and his Walker. He’s a lot more focused this time, and has real goals in the movie beyond a pair of shoes.

The great news is the first sequence with Fred has been animated and currently rendering. The real challenge ahead will be finding more free time to make this project happen on schedule. No release date yet, but I’d like to have something concrete by Fall 2016. More later. – F. Sudol (Sole creator of City of Rott and all aspects of the film.)

City of Rott: Otherworld Progress August 2015

City of Rott: Otherworld’s script is complete and all major voice parts have been fully recorded, including the main characters and minor characters.

Next step is to prepare an opening scene to animate to get a sense of how the film will progress. This step has already begun.

More than anything, the script and voice dialog are the blue print and storyboard for the way I create movies. Each scene I can visualize in my mind, and for that reason I don’t need actual storyboards as I work through the different shots as I progress, one step at a time. The challenge is to keep the pacing exciting. While there is a lot of story driven dialog, there are a lot of opportunities for exploration in this Otherworld City of Rott, as well as plenty of zombie encounters and beyond. COR:O will be created using Anime Studio Pro, and be in the hand drawn cut out style of City of Rott 1, only with much better animation all around. I’m interested in seeing how a project like this might respond with potential new audiences, though nothing is concrete yet until I have more materials to present, hopefully soon. Fan support is appreciated.

F.Sudol Contribution to New Horror Film: In other news, I have completed work on a new collaborative film studio project that I’m excited to be a part of, that will no doubt be on Blu-Ray and DVD and possibly have screenings in theaters also, possibly by Fall of 2016, though nothing is confirmed at this early stage. That’s the most I can say about it, other than that I’m contributing my animated horror ideas to it. Everything else is top secret. I’m hopeful everything will turn out as planned.
