Happy October 1st, everyone. And so it begins, another Countdown to Halloween where a large group of folk pledge to try and bring you Halloween-related goodies daily for the month of October.
To kick off my first post, let me draw your attention to Mad Lab Productions, an animation company who have created fun zombie shorts in the past like Rise of the Zombie Corpse and Springtime Zombie.
Now they have a new animated mini-series (cute and kid-friendly) called Vampire Instructionals.
"The premise: a kid vampire takes it upon himself (itself?) to create little instructional animations to school OTHER kid vampires on key aspects of vampire life (unlife?)"
The first is a 30 second tutorial on how to become a bat (which, using kid logic, is actually very simple). They will be releasing a new tutorial every Monday until they feel vampire children have all the basic skills they will need as they work towards becoming better vampires.
If you've ever watched Christmas Eve on Sesame Street, it reminds me of when Grover and Kermit interview children to figure out how Santa comes down the chimney.
Be sure to check out their YouTube video listings to get your Halloween quick fix.
And to everyone participating in this year's countdown, get posting. Pumpkin flavoured coffee is on me.
