Night of the Living Dead: Reanimated!

Well, here's a fun animated film for you: Night of the Living Dead: Reanimated! That's right, the George A. Romero classic from 1968 has received yet another treatment after the colorization attempt from 2004, only this time it is Web 2.0 to the bone. This feature is the combined effort of God-knows how many animators which participated with their entries in a global art competition, possibly with the idea to out-do Linklater's Waking Life. From what I've seen so far, the styles and the quality of the segments vary quite a bit, and I suspect that when the film is finally released on DVD some time in the Fall 2009, it will lead to massive giggles and headaches. In any case, kudos to the organizers for the idea and the patience to realize such an ambitious project!
