If you, like me, are a fan of the Evil Dead movies, you’ll be thrilled to hear that the artists at Pretend For Real Studios have created a rotoscope version of the trailer for Evil Dead 2. You can watch the trailer below, and be sure to visit YouTube to see all the great comments, including a suggestion that they do the entire film over the next 16.7 years.

The trailer was created using a technique known as rotoscoping, which involves animators tracing over live action and movement from film, copying it frame by frame, to create their animations. The name derives from the original projection equipment, called a rotoscope, though you will generally find animators using computers these days. The process of rotoscoping has also been made more efficient, with help from specialist software.

The original technique was created back in 1915 by Max Fleischer, and it has been used for various animated films and cartoons since. Director Richard Linlater recently used an updated rotoscope technique to create the 2001 feature film Waking Life. This was the first time the technique had been used to create an entire feature film, and the film received a positive reception from critics and movie goers. In 2006, he went on to create another film using digital rotoscoping, A Scanner Darkly, which is based on the Philip K. Dick novel.

You can learn more about rotoscoping, from the history through to the new era, on the LazyMovie website. The technique has been used in various ways over the years, from visual effects, such as a glowing lightsabres, to entire films, and of course in the Evil Dead 2 Trailer, which was tirelessly created over many hours by Pretend For Real animators simply because they could… and I’m definitely glad they did.

The Evil Dead 2 Trailer was created by Pretend For Real Studios, an Animation and Digital FX studio that specializes in horror, comedy and horror comedies. Visit their YouTube channel and portfolio site to find out more.
