About This Episode:
The shot where Paulo is being dragged away is one of my favorite of any MOC I have ever shot. It didn’t turn out like I wanted but I still like it. I don’t have a good camera. I have a cheap NIKON coolpix but most of these images are shot on an iPhone. Any good shot you see if the result of me obsessing over lighting. So, no, you don’t need an expensive camera to do all of this. Patience wins out if you take the time to figure lighting out.
With that said, I feel like that shot shows the absolute limitations of what I am capable of with the camera’s I have. There is a shot that Dave did with Sam in Hockey gear that is jaw dropping. It’s a shot I was trying to replicate and no matter how much I tried, this is as good as I could get it. I am in the market for a new camera.
Discussion Question: From Bo
How do you think the world’s governments would react to a zombie pandemic? Assume that itt’s fast enough moving that authorities can’t contain it before the WHO and CDC identify it and react (as in the world’s dead rising at once or a fast moving plague. The scenario fits either mythos). Would they use isolated military units, deployed naval fleets, for instance, to bomb infected population centers? Would they use nuclear weapons to prevent the spread? Recall General Patton’s suggestion that the US drop a line of nuclear bombs across the Korean peninsula to dissuade the invading Chinese. Would desperate governments attempt similar desperate measures?
How would this affect your survival plans? Would it change your mode of transportation, automobile verses walking? Do you think you could get an early enough warning to leave the blast zone? Do you know much about the prevailing winds and usual weather patterns in your current location to make a difference?
