I wish they would update that site more often. I half-thought that project had died. Too bad that update is 3 months old...
Well, according to Lee Lanier's blog (http://beezlebugbit.blogspot.com/) (March 12 update), the film should be done in July of this year, so hopefully it will be somewhere where I can see it! And possibly review it!

they told me earlier tonight that they are getting ready to really promote it, and within the week they will be sending me sounds and promo stuff to build the site with. so ya, I want to see it too. although they should release it at halloween (except of course) that harry potter and LOTR would totally obscure it. anyhow as i work on stuff for the theme I will update this post.

Actually I have already heard of this coz I have the animation software they used. I got it for my birthday for a massive (Well, at my age anyway) £200! It's animation master ( www.hash.com ) and they have a link to Day OFF the Dead on their site. I saw the trailer, and my only worry is that it's in black and white (I like colour) but otherwise I think it's gonna be a great film!

so far to date I designed:
their themes appearance
their themes webviews
the logo startup\shut down screens
3 screen savers
today I begin the desktop wallpaper
and finally cause it's fiddly
icons cursors and animated cursors.
then it's time to package and create the
theme itself with all elements included
I will post small thumbnails of the work
so far later today\tonight.
They told me it is going to be released
at all the major film festivals and such.
Sundance (I hope Toronto Film Festival)
that would be wicked cause I might get
to meet Jeff and Lee in person.
I am enjoying doing something for professional use. Normally you ask
and volunteer your services only to be ignored or not taken serious,
Jeff and Lee are the first industry people who have ever responded or said 'yes'
to an offer. It is a job on spec,
but it's something, and sometimes
a little something leads
to other things down the road.
