Zombie Cliche Lookout: Move or Die
In zombie movies, and even in a lot of action movies, it seems like there’s always that one person who can’t seem to manage to get their head together and get moving while they’ve got a chance. Sometimes they’re frozen and don’t know how to react, other times their distracted by less important things that have given them tunnel vision, and sometimes they just grossly under-appreciate the severity of the situation.
Invariably, someone has to put themselves at risk to get the distracted party moving, and they’re generally not too happy about it. Sometimes it all works out well, and everyone survives. Maybe they even learn a valuable lesson. Other times the result is… less ideal.
About this Episode:
I really wanted to do an episode from the point of view of the cameraman. I don’t know why, but I thought it’d be fun to mock up the camera’s heads up display. And you know what? It kind of was.
For the display, I didn’t get too fancy. Just a few icons for battery and recording. Probably not terribly accurate, but what can you do (other than research, of course, which is preposterous)?
Also, I’ve always wanted to do a black and white episode.
Discussion Question: Improvised Weapons
No cheating on this one, everyone. If you start listing a bunch of guns, swords, etc., then you’re either full of crap, or very, very prepared.
Okay, the zombies attack right now. Look around the room you’re in and find the best zombie killing weapon before they break through the door and eat your face. Tell us where you are and what you chose.
I’m at work while I write this, so my options are pretty damn limited. About fifteen feet or so from my desk is a paper slicer. I’d kick the blade/handle thing of that and hope for the best.
