Director's Comments

Two brave spacemen journey to the far reaches of the galaxy in search of precious Radioactive Brickarian Crystals. Can they find these rare treasures? ...or will they become just another meal for...SPACE ZOMBIES!!!

This movie was a spur-of-the-moment idea and was animated in 7 hours from 10:30pm to 5:30am without stopping. Animation was done in a relay fashion where one of us would animate a few scenes & then pass the next shots on to the other. Enjoy.

Staff Review

Nikolas Jaeger:
Like in several of his other films, SlothPaladin parodies classic B-movies with this strange but hilarious short. There is almost no plot to speak of, but the bizarre humor makes up for it. SPACE ZOMBIES!!
