If this kid can do something like this in 8th grade, I can’t wait to see what he does when grows up.

I’m an 8th grader in middle school, and I want to become an Animation filmmaker. I love sci fi films! I’m a fan of Tim Burton and Brad Bird. I love adventure orchestral music too.

Just for fun over the summer, I decided to make an animation music video inspired by Norman Reedus’ character “Daryl Dixon” of The Walking Dead tv show on AMC. I chose Daryl Dixon because he’s a fan favorite, changed into a positive dude the group can now count on, and i just HAD to do a story about that crossbow of his! So I made the story kinda “Walking Dead” meets “Indiana Jones”.

I mostly like Comedy oriented stories about aliens, cyborgs, and robots, (Monsters vs Aliens, The Incredibles, etc..) so making this short film was different for me. And basically I liked the song a lot and was looking for something “heavy” to use it on. So a “zombie themed” film seemed like the right fit. Thanks for watching - - play it loud & enjoy!

I’m glad to see that the majority of my new fans have been entertained and enjoyed the wild ride, kinda like a video game. Looks like people mostly focused on the colors i used, the background settings, music i picked, zombie movement, etc…. and haven’t been too fussy about the gore and violence of the video. (FYI: the squirrel scene is an inside joke from Seasons 1 & 2 and so I wanted to show a goofball way on how the map of the “legendary crossbow” was found.) People have seen my other films and so they know that I’m growing as an artist.
