AMC has released another behind-the-scenes featurette from The Walking Dead, this time examining the fascinating work that went into creating the make-up effects for the first zombie that will appear on the show. What’s so great about this clip is the old-school make-up work that is being done on the series. The classic techniques on display above would be just as home on an 1983 episode of Standby: Lights, Camera, Action as they are here.Topless Robot – Beauty Tips from the Walking Dead.
So for some reason WordPress doesn’t like to embed Flash movies on my page. Maybe I just need to get a real account or uncheck a box or something, who knows. But here’s the link to watch this footage on M-tv’s site. Cause ya when I think Zombies, I think M-tv… wtf!
A few days ago I posted on Quint’s day on the set of AMC’s upcoming series The Walking Dead. This was a two part post and he is back with the rest of the day and some more photos. After reading this, I have very high hopes for The Walking Dead. It seems that the people making this are very into it. And the writer has a lot of influence over what happens with the story. Nothing I hate worse then a great book, or comic and someone decides that they know better then the author. Normally if it was popular enough to become a movie/tv series then the book/comic had something going. Don’t fuck up a good thing!!
Sorry had to vent there a little. And now the link to rest of the story. Here!
Bracken over at The Horror Geek posted this some time ago. I haven’t kept up with the blog as much as I would have liked. So here is some more stuff to fill your zombie needs!
Sorry for the long delay between posts — I’ve been doing a lot of stuff over at Horror Squad (and if you’re not checking me out there, you should be — it’s extra content) and I’ve not had a bunch of free time. I’m back today though, with more Walking Dead goodness.
Pictured above is the first production photo from AMC’s new series — based on Robert Kirkman’s comic set after the zombie apocalypse. Greg Nicotero of the mighty KNB Effects did the zombie design and it looks amazing. Director Frank Darabont concurs, saying “Greg Nicotero is absolutely out-doing himself. The work he is doing is beyond what one could hope for. Our Zombies kick ass!”
The series is set to debut on AMC later this year.
So as I have said this story has been changed and distorted time and time again. I’m not sure if this is for the better or not. But, only time will tell and all we can do is wait and see.
The story in a nutshell is this; A young man awakes to find his world turned upside down. Some how the whole town has turned into flesh eating zombies. But, this young man isn’t like most. He hasn’t been waiting per say but, he wasn’t caught off guard either. Now he has to make his way through a city to gather his friends and make a choice. Stay and fight! To try to figure out how this all happened and stop it. Or put as much distance between civilization and them as possible to stay alive.
So as I write this book, I get more and more ideas of how to change it. Then my “ADD” kicks in and I forget to stay on track and that’s why I’m not that far along. But, with recent developments in my career. I have some free time now to work on the novel. So here is some unfinished shots of the story within the the story of the zombie apocalypse.
So sitting here at Bongo’s (best food in Chandler… Maybe Az) and thought I should update my blog. So as I’m sure most people that are close to me have already seen, but what the hell. Here is one of the first pages. I’ll post soon about what the premise of the novel will be, but won’t go all “Captain Spoiler” on your asses!
