There’s a lot of zombie stuff out there, and most of it is crap. People like to jump on bandwagons and produce quick tie-ins rather than investing love and effort into their creations. Luckily for you, I’m here to help separate the wheat from the chaff. Check back every Thursday, when I’m going to share the coolest zombie-related creation I can find out there on the web.
The Zombie Creation:
This week’s creation, “End of Days – Alone” by Bricktease, is another video (two in a row, crazy!), but this time returning to our favorite building material: LEGO®.
So What’s Going On?
A lone survivor drive through the wasteland of the zombie-infested world, looking for supplies and possibly other survivors. What does he find? Naught but destruction and the walking dead.
There is no sound in the video, only the slow, mournful background music that punctuates the scene perfectly. Rather than rapid, kinetic action, we get a lazy, melancholy scene showing the leftovers of humanity in the face of ultimate disaster.
The video itself is quite well put together. There’s not a ton of stop motion, as a lot of the action is simply watching the wind quietly buffeting plants and trees, which is a neat effect in its own right.
Let’s Talk About the Zombies
There are only a couple zombies here, poking around in the ruins of civilization. I spot the Zombie Driver and Zombie Groom from the Monster Fighters series, which is cool.
They appear to be slow and dessicated. When our survivor encounters one in an abandoned gas station, the zombie doesn’t even press the attack, as he is seemingly flummoxed by the counter in his way.
Have you seen a great zombie creation out on the web? Are you working on the next great zombie MOC as we speak? Well you had better let us know right away, otherwise we’ll never be able to include it here.
Gotta say it’s beautiful.
Absolutely. Kind of amazing, given the subject matter.
Thanks for haring my video 🙂 and thanks for the nice review. im glad others appreciate it after the work i put in to it.
My pleasure, Duncan.
I’m not sure if the plants movement was a way to try and capture the wind moving through the trees or if that just happened by moving the peices around but I think it gave the whole movie a big natural feel like Nature has took over when humanity fell.
If it was accidental, then it’s a happy accident because the effect is fantastic.
the first video I did, years ago, it was an accident. Now its usualy deliberate 🙂
