Zombie Cliche Lookout: Call for Attention
When you’re putting yourself in front of a group of people that you want to pay attention, it’s important to put yourself into a position of authority, at least to a certain extent. And when those people are scared out of their minds during the zombie apocalypse, you’re definitely going to want their attention. You need them to listen to you carefully and actually do what you say. By making yourself seem collected, calm, and in charge, you’re far more likely to get everyone to pay you heed. With any luck, your quiet confidence will put them at ease long enough to actually listen to what you have to say.
About this Episode:
I’m quite happy with the second frame of this episode, which shows both Clark turning toward Vicky and the kids, and Barb making her way out of the basement. I definitely wanted to capture both little moments so that Barb wouldn’t just suddenly stop appearing in panels, while simultaneously shifting the focus over to different characters. A quick behind the scenes note: I had removed Vicky and the kids from the set while I shot the Clark/Barb scenes because they kept getting in the way.
Discussion Question: Halloween
This Monday was Halloween, and I’m curious what everyone did for this important holiday. I took the day off work, along with my wife, so we could go to my kids’ school parties. It was a lot of fun. In the evening, we took them out trick-or-treating, and, once they went to bed, got caught up on The Walking Dead.
On a related note, does anyone live in an area that doesn’t celebrate Halloween? Anyone who doesn’t celebrate for religious or other reasons?
Also, does anyone else check their spelling by singing that elementary school song in their head (H – A double-L – O, W – double-E – N, spells Halloween)?
