AMC Beauty Tips from The Walking Dead

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.

The Least Practical, Most Awesome Zombie Weapon Ever

Topless Robot – The Least Practical, Most Awesome Zombie Weapon Ever.

So if any of you were wondering what to pick up for my bday. THIS! And form of this would be the best present, ok pretty close to a years membership to Craft Beer of the Month Club (thx family!) but awesome none the less. Here’s the OG post from Unreality.com The link is to Topless Robot, a great Nerd Blog.

It’s the greatest weapon possibly ever conceived, the RPC, or Rocket Propelled Chainsaw.  Yes, it is EXACTLY what it sounds like, and provided you have an unlimited amount of chainsaws, you’ll be the zombie killing champion of the post-apocalyptic world.

I’m frankly surprised such a device hasn’t shown up in a game or a movie yet, but there’s still hope for Dead Rising 3, which literally attaches chainsaws to everything you could possibly imagine. I’m pretty sure the protagonist of that game will literally have chainsaws for arms, legs and a head, with a secret compartment in his chest…for another chainsaw.

I roll 20's!

Armadeaddon: Dark Genesis This isn’t new by any means, just a great zombie web comic series from Penny Arcade. I would say its one of the sources of inspiration that made me want to make a graphic novel. It’s nine pages long, just hit the next button to keep reading. Enjoy

Hey Negrita: Zombie Music Video Trilogy

Don't ever leave your back to a door!
British Country Rock band Hey Negrita had UK based animation studio Pew36 make a short film that spans three of their songs. Pew36 describe the video as:

A music video trilogy for Hey Negrita’s tracks ‘One Mississippi’, ‘Nine to Five’ & ‘Burn the Whole Place Down’. The brief was to create 3 music videos which hold their own but can also work as a long format piece. This award winning animation has screened all round the world and has something for everyone.

Let’s see the undead, check. Your friends getting turned and you have to kill them, check. Scantly clad woman running in the darkness, check. Buckets of blood, double check. Using random items as weapons to defend yourself, check. Yup I think this one has it all. Check out the full video at Pew36’s website or the 3 separate videos on Dailymotion. And if you liked that sort of music check out the bands Facebook page.
