What Makes a Good Zombie??
What is a Good Zombie? What Makes a Zombie look like a zombie? How do you potray the image as an actor or Actress?
These are a few of the questions I would like answers too.
I'm putting this up because I think zombies are just made to look cool on t-shirts and in movies nowa days. I think there whole ripping guts out and devoring the guts has been lost. What does Every else think? Please put your views on this too thanks. :)
"What Makes A Good Zombie?"
Your parents ignoring you and your brother as you both sit in a puddle in the barnyard playing with a hammer, taking turns hitting each other on the head with it. My best friend and neighbor Mike worked for this farmer when he was a kid and that is what he saw happening there.
Well I guess when you have 11 kids you can't watch them all ,all the time?
As far as the speed of a scare, I think some scares are too quick to actually be milked for their full potential. "Anti-ci-pa-tion" Remember that? A very good piece or part of a memorable scare.
I found out one of my best scares was happening too quickly, it was over with and the customer's mind identified it and classified it , regulating it into the memory dump bin before it was a second old.
I think the customer's mind often needs the 2 seconds to wonder, "What the Hell Is THAT?" and time to realse THEY DON"T KNOW!!! Confusion and ignorance lead to fear, now don't they?
"What was that I just saw? Was that a real person or a display dummy? Was that spider real? Did it move or not?" See what I mean?
Of course pnuematics are often very guilty of being too fast for maximum effect, the scare is over before it makes confusion or can begin the process of identifying it so the brain just passes by it.
The whole "Too Quick" thing is like someone standing around a corner and swinging a baseball bat smacking you on the head, you didn't see it coming, versus the person stepping around the corner, you see them, you see the bat in their hand, they call you a nasty name like "Jim", THEN they swing it!
