Zombie Cliché Lookout:
People don’t like to change. A lot of people like to talk about change. Being a more positive person. Becoming more active. Getting up earlier, spending more time with the family. These are all lofty goals, but the cold hard reality is that change is hard, and big changes scale the difficulty upward at a terrifying rate. We are, at our cores, creatures of comfort and habit. Upsetting the natural equilibrium we’ve settled into is difficult for most, impossible for some.
So when we do change, it’s likely due to something greater than that difficulty forcing us to change. That guy who struggles with his weight his whole life? A minor heart attack at forty might just be the thing that convinces him to do something about it.
About this Episode:
I really love shots where one character walks to the foreground to either continue talking or to stare into space menacingly, with the other character quiet in the background. I’ve probably used that sort of shot a half-dozen times by now.
Also, ignore that little bit of beard you can see on the back of “Dad’s” head. Or assume it’s hair. Whatever. I love the extra expressions you get with the dual sided heads, but sometimes it makes getting your angles a little more difficult than it needs to be.
Does everyone remember Yatkuu’s incredible Winchester creation Shaun of the Dead? Well, it was shot down by LEGO® (grumble, grumble), but it lives on elsewhere. While you won’t be able to buy the set (grumble, grumble), Yatkuu has painstakingly gone through every step of the build process to create an amazing set of instructions and a part list. It will be released tomorrow. Check here for more information.
