This re-telling of Shaun of the Dead is epic beyond proportions. The 60 second recap utilizes the style of Bryan O’Malley, the artist for the comic book, Scott Pilgrim. Edgar Wright, director of Shaun of the Dead (as well as Spaced, Hot Fuzz, which both have little nods in the short) also directed Scott Pilgrim vs The World when it was brought to the big screen. Is the epic-ness sinking in yet!?
Wright shared this clip recently on his blog. Nothing better than having you’re work aknowledged by someone of great influence for you, huh? Philip Askins, the short’s animater, must be proud. You can visit his site to check out more of his animation, much of with a touch of O’Malley’s style.
There must be a continuation of this mashing of styles. We need a Hot Fuzz animated short, a Spaced animated short. The infuence of Wright’s quick cuts and O’Malley’s pop art graphics make for something wonderful to watch.
