I really enjoyed this. It's truly amazing how good the animation is. Everything transitions so perfectly. I really do feel for this poor kid. I thought it would be like your earlier stuff at first. It was like a silent film with no dialogue.
I am glad it didn't stay that way. I prefer the audio. It shows the extra effort. You know how to put emphasis on the voices. A bit long, but it gets its message across well.
This episode brings up some questions
Was Laura's mom turned into a zombie and if so was the mentioned infection spread by bite or something else? Also this episode and the web site imply that Dr. Shroud is/was married; what happened to his wife ? Did she die, did the marriage fall apart after Wendy was kidnapped or am I way off in thinking he doesn't live with her? There are certain questions about Necropolis that need to be expanded on. Also is it me or was it a bit dark outside for 5pm? Questions and maybe some gripes about the characters' movements and facial expressions aside there is something good about this series so I hope I didn't come off as discouraging or overly rude. Keep up the good work.
No, this is all encouraging stuff! I love when people have questions, especially good ones like yours, so thanks. First off, I should say that most questions will be answered in the live action feature film, but I will do my best to explain here. The animated stories are intended to be self contained brief snapshots in the life of Dr. Shroud, reserving chronological plotlines and subplots for other mediums (aforementioned film, comics, etc.).
That said, here you go:
"Was Laura's mom turned into a zombie and if so was the mentioned infection spread by bite or something else? "
She was infected by a bite from the rampant vampire infection in Necropolis.
"Also this episode and the web site imply that Dr. Shroud is/was married; what happened to his wife ? "
Married, currently separated. She's in the feature script.
"There are certain questions about Necropolis that need to be expanded on. Also is it me or was it a bit dark outside for 5pm?"
Necropolis will be explained eventually. It's always dark at 5PM in Necropolis. Think of it as perpetually Fall.
Making characters move better nowadays. :)
