Zombie Cliche Lookout: Top to Bottom Search
In a zombie story, people will inevitably get separated, and the missing parties will need to be located and brought back to the group. This can prove difficult since, you know, there are also zombies to contend with. Not only do those zombies present problems to the people doing the searching, they may also force the missing parties to make themselves harder to find.
Kids in particular can make this difficult. Not only are they small and easy to hide, many children also tend to hide when they get scared. They may even remain hidden when rescuers arrive because they’re too worried to reveal themselves. I took a firefighting class in high school (career prep, although I am not a fireman) where this was stressed heavily. Firefighters have to thoroughly search for kids, as they often hide.
About this Episode:
There are two things I wanted to point out about this episode. First, my photos seemed to have come out much crisper than usual (even more so before I optimized them in Photoshop to reduce the file size. I have no idea why this is. I’ve attempted to reproduce this in several subsequent episodes with no luck.
Second, this is the last time we’re going to see some of these sets. They’ve been taking up a lot of space, and I’ve been really happy about tearing them apart. As soon as I finished shooting this episode I tore down several of these, with the exception of the bedroom and the exterior of the house. Sweet, sweet freedom!
Discussion Question: Holiday Weekends
Did everyone in the US and Canada (happy Canada Day, everyone!) enjoy their long weekend? Get down to anything fun? We did a lot of yard work, but otherwise not much. Just some nice, relaxing family time. For those of you in the rest of the world, apologies for the Amero-centrism.
