Nothing says “I love you,” like a Zombie ridden honeymoon, with heads exploding, and body parts dragging…right? Well, it does for our married couple Alex and Bill McCoy. Professional make-up artists by day, and Zombie hunters by night, this couple has an affinity for the supernatural. After spending their early married years as lead makeup artists for Europa parks Horror Nights, the couple wanted to make their “Trash the Dress” session even more memorable than ever. With the help of our inspired and talented couple, friends and volunteers, we were able to create this amazing rendition of the walking dead—breathing new “life” into the phrase “Till death do us part.” bitly.com/vOb8yS
We were approached by Rich Johnson of RJ + CJ Studios to partner with a Trash the Dress session.
Thank you to Rich Johnson & his wife Caressa for the concept and all the talent. Also to the beautiful Bride Alex McCoy and Groom Bill McCoy.

Walking Driving Dead.
Ich hätte gerne diesen Bus.
Dann fahren wir alle zusammen in den Urlaub.
A four part series about the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse set during the financial crisis of 2008.
The project was realised for www.doschauher.tv
Each episode took about one week and I pretty much had to learn After Effects from scratch. All characters and most of the backgrounds are handdrawn and vectorised. Color, textures and additional backgrounds were added in Photoshop and all animation was done in After Effects (with some additional animation in 3D Studio Max).
You can find the tutorial for the Introanimation here
There are a lot of things i would do different today but i hope you enjoy it anyway.
