Hell yeah, Daily first, 6th place in Madness day, review crew pick, and weekly third.

Hello people
After a long break from flash, I finally return with my new Madness day submission. This movie is 9 minutes and 2 seconds, so get a snack! I started working on this movie in early July, and finished in time for Madness day. Over the summer, I stayed up working on this, and on average, I got atleast 500 frames done every night, I remember a night when I got 1000 done.

This movie is about some survivors from a recent Zombie apocalypse that was caused by the release of a dangerous chemical that was originally an attempt at a medicine to cure age. The virus got out due to an employee not disposing of it properly.The virus killed mostly everyone, but the ones it didn't kill, lost basic instincts and turned into mindless, flesh eating zombies. The virus was spread by bites and scratches, and it even infected animals.. The recent news report stated that there was a military-operated refuge on a private island off the coast of Pennsylvania. A group of survivors make the choice to travel to the harbor and attempt for the island, but the seemingly endless forces of the undead interfere in their quest...
the characters names aren't all listed, so here,

Red: Nick, Orange: Justin, Deli owner: Rostello, Girl: Karlie, and the guy with the funky hair, Dean.

I hope you all enjoy this film!

A classic

The animation was good, and the horde fight was great. I like the background buildings and their jokes. Some of the backgrounds could be better, I feel. It was a bit awkward how the guy at the beginning just kept spouting blood and everyone was fine with it, and he was still able to climb fences no problem. His transformation took far less time than expected. I feel like the supermarket scene kinda broke the tension. Oh, and it's weird how in the beginning people have voices but then for the rest of the thing they use speech bubbles, in a more madness-y way of interaction. Nevertheless, it's a great series, and it was great rewatching this.

Lmao I tried to emphasize on the idea that transformation time is relative to the size and location of the bite. Thank you though, that means a lot considering that this was something I made when I was 12. Check out the rest of the series, I think there was a major improvement in both art and animation within this episode and Day of the Madness, released a year later. Fast forward to ten years after the original release, when I'm hoping to get episode 4 done.

this is MADNESS!!

The dawn,day and dusk of the madness are all awesome. But at 5:44 one of the buildings says---I fucking HATE making buildings now, I mean damn do any of you even read them?

This was intense and gruesome with some of the best animations in terms of a zombie apoclpyse. Great job bro :D
