"Afraid of Monsters" Fake Trailer Animatic
For my first semester final, I decided to resurrect an old animation idea that I had but didn't touch for a long while. The idea was to make a fake movie trailer for a Half-Life modification known as "Afraid of Monsters: Directors Cut", made by Andreas Rönnberg. Seeing how it was one of the scariest games that I've played, I was hoping to recapture the paranoia and chaos found within the game
Stills/Cel Animated Segments
"Full moon rising over the dark forest"
One instance of cel animation- David (the main character) pouring out a couple of pills onto the palm of his hand.
David satisfying his addiction.
"Who are you running from?"
Close up of David's eye as he awakens in the now-abandoned hospital.
The broken mirror with the painted eye, as it would appear in-game.
David encountering one of the game's many hallucinations.
In this scene where David hears footsteps of oncoming enemies, I took inspiration from some of the works of Junji Ito for his uneasy facial expression.
