Hey there, Newgrounds.

With permission, here are the trailers for a potiental new show, Zombie Murder Explosion Die! This has been a pet project between several people for the past few motnhs and with your help and support we can turn it into a fully fledged cartoon show for TV.

Intro from writer/director/that guy Andrew Racho:

Nickelodeon artist Jeff Campbell came to Scout Raskin (producer) and I
with an idea to do an animated zombie show. Scout and I have worked at
Shadow Machine (Robot Chicken, Moral Orel) for years and were in
production on our own animated show, "An Okay Place to Eat"
(http://www.vimeo.com/son icbunny/albums). Jeff thought we could help see
his idea through and enlisted our aid.

The three of us discussed at length all the bits and pieces of the zombie
world and the characters we wanted to see live in it. What resulted was
Zombie Murder Explosion Die, a show about today's tech-dependent
generation and how they incompetently survive in the zombie apocalypse.
Jeff designed the characters and I penned an episode about how the team's
survivalist, Jack, struggled to stay alive amidst an epic fight while the
others, unaware, tried to get a TV to work so they could watch a DVD of
Saved by the Bell.

Once we were done with "Okay Place," Scout assembled our team. We hired
Ben Van Den Broeck to do storyboards. He introduced us to Josh Palmer,
who did all the fantastic Jack animation at the end of the first trailer.
Ben's girlfriend Sarah Hampton did the backgrounds. All other animation
was done by character by Ben (Heather), Sarah (Janey), Rachel Mitchell
(Walter, Chance), Stephanie Simpson (Mike), Dawn Nakama (Robbie), and
Brian Finlay (well, he did the second trailer).

We tried to get in touch with Hatebreed's label for the music, but they
never got back to us. So, my brother Tim did the music. He used to play
in hardcore bands. This was his first time scoring, too. Also, voices
were done by our actor friends: Jared Hillman (Mike), Tomer Schechori
(Robbie), Malcolm Barrett (Jack), Sara Jo Elice (Heather), Jeff (Chance),
Scout (Janey), me (Walter), and whoever else was around to make zombie
grunts.

Thanks for watching and if enough of you like it, hopefully we'll be able
to make the show!

Thanks for the support Tom fulp and Newgrounds~

Lets make this show a reality!

This Will be an Amazing Show

Cross my fingers that this will take off soon!! I can see how the clash of interests in lifestyle and generation can lead to a funny and dramatic Zombie killing show! The music was great for a first time scorer. Good luck and I really hope this project will workout for you all!!!!

All style, little substance.

Your audio work is very well done.

The animation is tasteful, stylish, and well polished.

However, going from the trailer alone, it seems lacking in characterization. Hopefully when you bring a pilot to the stage, it'll be a bit more fleshed out and less one-dimensional.

Also, those were level 6 zombies, do some damn research.
