quietearth [Celluloid 12.01.10] post apocalyptic movie news scifi animation



From Halo-8, the folks behind Godkiller, specifically Ben Templesmith who was co-creator of 30 days of night who had this to say:

It's post apocalyptic. It deals with a small group of soldiers, as the human race is reduced to relatively low tech solutions to claw back their planet, the new religion that drives them on to this goal in the face of hopelessness...and all the stuff that comes from such things.

Teaser after the break and here is our original post on it.

No, it is about this:
"Templesmith revealed his plans for Black Sky, an illustrated film that will "meld the cinematic storytelling style of comics with good audio/voice acting and some animation/CGI in places." As for what Black Sky is actually about, Templesmith had this to say on his website:

"So far, all I can say is sort of Band of Brothers...but with SQUID. (Well, Cthulhu-ish ideas and my love of all things tentacular.) Yes, it's a war comic. Want to get all emotional and down and dirty with it. Not exactly comedy in the vein of Wormwood.... It's post-apocalyptic. I deals with a small group of soldiers, as the human race is reduced to relatively low tech solutions to claw back their planet, the new religion that drives them on to this goal in the face of hopelessness...and all the stuff that comes from such things. Many horrific and hopefully, some touching "tales from the front" in many ways. And of course, they'll end up being players in a major event that may define the now generations long conflict.""

Either way... I love, LOVE animated comix! This is obviously the future of the medium. As a forever comic book collector I get upset at the idea of this as half the thrill (4 me anyway) of comics is the "collecting" part BUT, I realize the future CAN'T be stoped... OR CAN IT!?!

Shit, I really hope animated comics isn't the future of the medium. Isn't it just a less animated animation? Also the best thing about the comic medium is the fact that you control the flow of the story, something that gets lost if you an animate it.

Or wait, were your comment ironic maybe? Your last sentence confuse me.

Anyway, Templesmith art has improved so much since he started out I think. This could be good.
