Like many of you I grew up watching Saturday morning cartoons. As a matter of fact, I called Saturday “cartoon day” until I was about seven years old. Back in the golden era of Saturday morning animated entertainment we had incredible (yet bizzaro) shows like Transformers, Thundercats, and the U.S.A. Cartoon Express. While programming like Star Wars: The Clone Wars still provides kids with a bit of “magic”, I fear that the days of utterly ridiculous 80s-style cartoons are long gone… Enjoy this April fools joke from the fine folks at IGN. For the record… I would watch the poop out of this show.
Even after watching Project S.E.R.A., I still have so many questions! The ten minute short film directed by Resident Evil editor Ben Howdeshell sprung to life this morning on YouTube, and damn is it good! Julia Voth (Lilith, Resident Evil, Bitch Slap) stars as Jill, in what could easily be described as a Reservoir Dogs-esque hostage drama with a zombie twist. Not only was it great to see Voth blast the undead and pick pesky locks (masterfully I must add), Project S.E.R.A. is one of the best short films I’ve seen in quite a while. Simply put, Howedeshell knows what he’s doing ; S.E.R.A. looks great, is well paced, and has gore in all the right places. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that there is more coming soon from the duo of Voth and Howdeshell, because I for one would kill to see a feature version of Project S.E.R.A. Enjoy!
It is unclear at this point if this project is in any way associated with the Resident Evil franchise. Voth as Jill? Perhaps a RE:6 viral tie in?
