Zombie Cliche Lookout: Friendly Fire
I’ve always been a pro-gun ownership guy, so I would contend that guns aren’t inherently dangerous, but the people that use them certainly can be. Sadly, irresponsible gun ownership is a fact of life, and odds are it will only get worse in the midst of a zombie outbreak where we have more untrained users and more people panicking at every noise they hear. Just another threat people will have to cope with in the zombie apocalypse.
About this Episode:
Generally speaking, I try to do most of the photography for Bricks of the Dead at “eye level” with the minifigs. I see a lot of other photos, comics, and brickfilms shot at various angles, usually above the figures, and I think it looks wrong. It just doesn’t seem like we’re seeing a story, just photos of toys. That said, I do like to occasionally break my “eye level” rule. Not terribly often, mind you, but occasionally I find it makes the composition more interesting or illustrative.
For those of you following my Let’s Play Outlast series (and you should be), we will unfortunately not have an entry this week. I recorded video for Episode 2 of Whistleblower, but it got corrupted. I’ll try to do two next week to make up for it.
This one comes from BrickVoid (with a capital “V” this time): Should people with deadly diseases that kill ordinary people come back as zombies? Like let’s say someone has a fatal inoperable cancer which will eventually kill them and it’s in their brain where surgery carries a high risk of patient death anyway. Should these kinds of people come back as zombies in a zombie apocalypse or is it too far fetched? Where do you draw the line, in other words, when it comes to realistically created zombies, fictional or otherwise?
