I uploaded a new version with an actual title, the full original title, displayed. I also stuck the umbrella symbol behind the tank logo for giggles... and I fixed the music loop... it'll actually loop now instead of just playing 3 times and stopping...

...sigh.

I've had this kicking around in my computer for... oh... 4 years or so. Might be 5. It's at least 4...

The pathos behind this was a short Halloween collab I was working on (that ended up falling apart). I took what I had (zombies) and took it to an island in the North Atlantic (In the Faroe Islands, hence the title), built an Umbrella base there and formulated a plot involving Claire Redfield as the protagonist. The whole thing was basically the last escape from the island, and it called for some intense stuff.

This was a large project. I had probably about 20 full minutes worth of script, fifteen different music pieces chosen (all from NG audio), some voicing for Claire (from Kagome, sorry Kagome), sound effects and a few gigs worth of art. A lot of time and effort went into building the groundwork for this movie.

However, I simply lost interest. Got distracted. Life stepped in, whatever you want to call it, and it fell by the wayside. So, back a while ago (it's been a while), I put together this short trailer with what I had, but never decided to publish it - thinking it silly to publish a trailer for something I wasn't working on.

Now, I'm pretty sure I'll never finish this. It's fun to look at, though, so I thought I'd publish it here for some kind of catharsis - really I'd just like it to be seen so I can move on. All I really added just before publishing it is the preloader - which is one I apparently modified some time ago. Basically, this is the leavings of a project I never got around to finishing. Take it or leave it, it's what I'm showing.

I wasted so much time on this and all for naught... well, there's this at least. It's shaky in places because it was never polished, but here's about all I'm likely to release of this.

I hope you find it moderately enjoyable.

Nice trailer! Although zombie-action isn't my favorite genre, this looks like it would have been quite a gem of a movie. It's a shame, I love to see a movie with a solid story on newgrounds, and your extensive script sounds like it could have been very promising. However, it does sound like a hefty project, and I do understand.

As for your animation style, a lot of the movement was fairly fluid and your pictures were pretty good! It's hard to make good action animation, and I think you have it down. If there is anything to improve visually (though this may be my personal preference), I would use a different font for a trailer :), haha. I can't say I was a fan of this block-ish font.

It's a shame you didn't get to finish this one - good luck on your future work!

I think it used to have a better font, but, unfortunately, the font I had used was on a previous computer, and I didn't know what it was, and I really didn't feel like it was a necessary fix.

Thanks, though.
