As stated in the beginning of the video. This is all fictional. I would never want these things to happen to anyone in the world, especially the Colbert family. This is only a portrayal of my own fears syncing up with bits of "Empty Walls" by Serj Tankian. The length to complete this project took 2 weeks to finish and I started it on October 25, 2010 and submitted it on November 8, 2010.
This video was inspired by Stephen Colbert's March to Keep Fear Alive and the online comic "Eagle of Hermes" by SailorPtah located on DeviantArt .

And for those who don't understand what's going on, here's the basic lay out of the movie:
The door bursts open revealing a shadowy figure. With impossible speeds, the intruder closes in on its victims and slashes at them with its razor sharp claws. As the blood splatters everywhere, there is only one person that remains. Smugly, the creature reaches for its prey, thinking this one will be fun to torment. Then after he fades to unconsciousness, he awakes to find himself in a bare room with only a coffin to keep him company. His movement caused a surge of pain in his neck, and as he pulled his hand away, he finally takes notice of the warm, dark fluid covering his hand. With a shock, he hears the voices and they torment him with images of his family dying with his help being in vain. As the taunting voice continues to echo either throughout the room or his mind, rage builds within him. He's Stephen Freaking Colbert, and he's not going to just give up with out a fight. He will not play this game. He will get out. And he will destroy the creature who took his life away from him. With the rush of adrenaline, he rampages in the small room. After knocking over the coffin, he attempts to break the wall down with all his might, but he is growing weak from blood loss and lack of oxygen. As time drags on, his actions have less and less energy behind them. It seems futile, but he continues. His knees grow weak, his breathing is erratic, he collapses infront of the wall. The burning feeling he thought was adrenaline is reaching a critical point in his system. He closes his eyes tightly. He has to stop. Has to breathe. He needs to do something to stop the pain in his heart. So he breathes. And breathes. And then he stops. The pain subsided. No more pain. Just anger. He opens his eyes to continue his fight.

Wow, that was pretty great :D I love old school flip book animation, especially the parts where paper movement is used as part of the action. I like the way you draw Stephen too, nicely done!

Thanks! I love hearing the positive feedback on this. All of these pages were the standard 11x8 size though. It was a super time consuming scanning all the the papers in, so eventually I snapped and just went with taking pictures of the rapid and dramatic movement scenes. ^^; All in all it was just fun (if I mentally block out the stress I went through).
Plus I'm surprised he turned out so well. I usually have the hardest time with real life people....

Ohhh, creepy. There's some really effective motion in this, and the dark figures are appropriately menacing =)

Thank you so much. I'm so happy you like it. :3
I even made his sure that his sire was left unknown so people could use their own imaginations as to what that vampire looked like. :)
