It has begun

Today our friends from LayerGloss twittered a picture of the Bloeddorst app in progress.
Here you see the first screen of Maarten Janssen’s comic. Oh, it’s gonna be so cool!

Unfortunately the other Maarten (Gerritsen) told us that he will not be able to finish his comic for the app in time. So we added a new author to our list. Curious? Stay tuned!

We’ll leave you for now with a little snippet of Menno’s comic.

Maarten and Maarten…

Bloeddorst: A Killer App, the trailer

Friday, October 28, 2011 22:31

There it is. The trailer we made for the iPad app. A very big thankyou goes to Peter Hoogeveen, the man who was responsible for the camera, the make-up, the editting and the sound-design.

And of course to Natasja van Loon, for portraying an awesome scream queen (though she’s running more than she is screaming).

The zombie is played by Mr. Bloeddorst Menno Kooistra and the hand that you see on 0’24” belongs to the one and only Maarten Janssens, that other Bloeddorst dude.

How’s that for Halloween?!

Another preview

Here’s another preview of Maarten Janssen’s comic for the upcoming iPad magazine.
Keep in mind that the two colors, the fore- and background, will move slightly from eachother (paralax) and that the flying bike will not fly, it’s just another layer ;)

And yes, this is Amsterdam!

Bloeddorst, the making of the trailer, part II

Yesterday Maarten and Menno shot the promo-trailer of Bloeddorst, the iPad magazine.

Buckets of blood: check
Apocalyptic setting: uhuh
Zombie: hell yeah
Helpless chick: better believe it
iPad: duh!

Thanks a million Peter for the make-up and special effects, the amazing camera work and the editting later on.
And thanks Natasja for being the best scream queen we could ever imagine!

Watch out for the final product!

Minck OosterveerIncredibly sad news. Last Saturday the amazing Dutch comic artist and Bloeddorst author Minck Oosterveer died in a motorcycle accident.

Minck created the comic hero Trunk for the first Bloeddorst book, together with writer and friend Willem Ritstier. Trunk later was given his own series of which the first book was released in 2008.

Minck will be greatly missed and we wish his family all the best.

RIP Minck!

Bloeddorst will return as an iPad Magazine!

Hand from iPad - Bloeddorst Magazine on the iPad!It’s been a while, but hey, a lot has happened since. But we can assure you that we’re back now with great news.

Bloeddorst will return for sure. As a magazine, nothing new there, but brace yourself: on the iPad!
Yesterday we talked it all over with a fresh, young and talented people from LayerGloss who can make magic happen with the Apple tablet.

The first magazine of Bloeddorst, exclusively made for the iPad will probably see the light of day early 2012, perhaps even by the end of this year. Bloeddorst the magazine will not be just a comic made for the iPad. It’ll be an experience. Something unique and freaking terrifying. It goes without doubt you can expect the quality you’re used to from the book, but this time with extra’s. Expect sketches, bonus comics, easter eggs, movement, sound, and lots of other great features. One thing’s for sure: it’ll scare the living shit out of you.

Stay tuned for more news to come. We’ll post all the bloody details on this blog. Of course you can also follow us on Twitter and Facebook.
