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.
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!
So this is a little kiddish art but, that’s why I like it. The gruesome story of Dead Space and the soft clean fun world of kids. It comes from P.A. native J Gray, who has some other great drawings not to mention great beer label art. Check out his blog Burn to Build Here
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.
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.
