Great post from Jacques Thelemaque over at his blog “a filmmaker’s life" at blogspot.com! He chronicles his adventures at Sundance this year! Scroll down from that post and there’s an earlier one about the "5 New Funding Models for Filmmakers" that’s pretty awesome as well!
If you’re like me, you probably love everything Zombies! I mean come on, who doesn’t????When The Walking Dead came to AMC two weeks ago, I was sooo ready. I had been greedily devouring everything about it since AMC first announced they were greenlighting the project. Zombie lovers have been waiting for a show to come to the small screen for a long, long time. And I have to admit I AM SOOOOO glad that this is the first and that it’s set the bar so high. Kudos AMC. Seriously. My favorite part so far has been the make up and special effects, Zombie fans can go both ways, we love cheesy effects much more than the next guy (or ghoul) but we also are the first to sit up straight when it is done oh so right.
And now on to the good stuff! Wait for It….The Walking Dead was shot on 16mm! Here’s a great article from www.studiodaily.com about how DP, David Boyd (and his team) “Makes Horror Work in Broad Daylight.” Click the Pic to read the full article of Awesomeness.
