Fanedit details:
This is a unique project, which started on Faneditforum.com from an idea by faneditor Mollo to bring together the creative powers of some of the best faneditors in the world for a DVD featuring short fanedits. The first project featured creations of the Batman series and was a huge success. This time, the audience begged for zombies. The call was received with excitement and within a few months the final DVD saw the light of day, including some wonderful works of art. All of the included fanedits differ a lot from each other, so there should be something on it for all kinds of undead fan tastes.

The list of shorts:
3Raz0r - Diary of a Dying Man - 16:00
When the zombie plague rolls over the world, weapons shop owner Andy starts his recording to make history, but soon has to discover he is all alone in his struggle, not just against the living dead, but also against hunger and lonesomeness.

Horrorgrind - The Virus - 11:09
Released in a laboratory accident, a deadly virus turns the worlds' population into the walking dead!

Mollo - Das Zombi - 16:49

CBB - Voodoo Island - 15:29

Blueyoda - Dead Awake - 16:18
A military crew is sent on a rescue mission to a planet where something has gone terribly wrong. They find more than they bargained for on this remote industrial planet.

Aztek463 - School's in Session - 15:45
During a deadly viral outbreak in Raccoon City, Dr. Charles Ashford seeks the aid of Jill Valentine, a member of Raccoon City's elite S.T.A.R.S. team, and Alice, a former employee of the Umbrella Corporation, to help locate his missing daughter. The problem? Everyone in her school has been infected with the T-Virus, turning them into zombies.

It seems that Zombie Consecution has fallen into the "difficult second album" category. Biased as I am, I still think that FanEditors getting together for such a project is exciting and very positive for the community. I believe that future Consecution projects will only get better.

For me Zombie Consecution stands-out for the discovery of a great talent in Blueyoda. Also Uncanny's uncanny talent for continually producing such awesome FanEdits. The guy is the maestro. Also I love the DVD design by Throw.

Finally, I hope that the next Consecution will be a genre that is less limiting. Zombies, though cuddly and attractive, are quite one dimensional.

Yeah, I think the second go was always gonna have to struggle to make a mark, especially so with zombies being such a broad (but limited) subject, whereas Batman gave it a sharper focus.

I was very underwhelmed when I first watched ZC, but I think it was my own preconceptions as to what I'd be watching. I watched it again tonight and enjoyed it about 70% more than the first time. Now I'm fairly happy with it. If nothing else, I am glad the subject was such a stylistic departure from Bats.

Biased as I am, I still think that FanEditors getting together for such a project is exciting and very positive for the community. I believe that future Consecution projects will only get better.
Agreed. Some subjects may suit the format, and some may not...but I daresay we will always get something interesting out of each volume. And if nothing else, they are great fun to be a part of. I for one can't wait 'til the next one.

Truer words never spoken.

You're too kind. :)

It's funny, zombies are a wide open field, but actually leave much less room for individuality due to the nature of the films. Just how many zombies films really set themselves apart? Very few.

So, when's the votin' start for round 3? ;)

I have pretty much the same feelings on this as Mollo and Antman. I havent commented on all the shorts yet, becuase I've been so involved with the project for a long time. I think that no matter what, number 2 would have had some trouble because of the sophomore hype and the trouble meeting expectations.

And also, I do think that zombies were not the best choice. While there is a ton of material, how different are the movies? They are mostly pretty linear and predictable, which is where a lot of the shorts went. I don't want to poo-poo the project at all, so don't get me wrong there. I think that the edits are all good, its just a different experience for me. And yes, I absolutely adored Blueyoda and Uncanny Antman's shorts. They were exactly what we needed here.

And I will sound like a broken record here. The best thing about this project is still the unity we have here at this website. To bring editors together from all over the world to discuss films and create a product like this is truly special, and it will continue.

As for the next consecution. I have been talking with boon a lot about this over the last few months, and we are going to go about it smart and slow. You can read a bit more here viewtopic.php?f=41&t=5527


And a B I G thank you to everyone involved in this. I had a lot off fun :)

That's very nice to hear, especially after the lukewarm reception of my True Romance fanedit.

I must say I'm a bit surprised by all the negative comments about the overall quality of this consecution. Even though I myself complained about the lack of originality of some of the shorts in my review (which I hope didn't hurt anyone's feelings), I actually prefered this consecution to the Batman one and will certainly re-watch my favorite ones a couple of times.

Can't wait to contribute to the third volume.

Thanks for posting those guys. Sorry for my delayed start on this. Here is my short. I'm limited to the amount of video I can upload per week, so I put this on my account. I can still upload one or two to the fanedit.org account this week yet. More to follow soon.
