New series

Hey all, I have this Idea of making a new film series called "Zombietag". I'll fill in most of the info gaps as I progress more. Until then could you guys give me some feedback as to what your thoughts might be on this subject? Thanks!

    Not really much feedback to give expect that Zombietag sounds a bit cheesy. Good luck with your project though!
  • Yeah, your right it does sound kinda cheap...
    Thanks for the feedback Rody! I'll look into the name :)

    I'd say (for plot/location) an isolated house, with subtle changes which can freak people out, so it is more of a horror than super zombie massacre lol ;)
  • Actually I was going to base the story line on a theme/game (Zombie tag). The location of this would be in a forest-like environment surrounded by countless trees and brush. The Zombies would be the type of "undead" that are unnaturally fast and agile. I am also giving them the ability of super strength as well as speed (not too fast though :)). All of the shots will be filmed freehand, no tripod/monopod/stand is going to be used. This film series will take longer because the only VFX program that I have is Vision Lab. Its not that its a bad thing but the time of editing in V.L vs the time of Hitfilm is such a large error that just the mere thought of it overwhelms me (kinda :P). Oh well... Im gonna run/post a few tests here and there so as to keep you guys updated :D

    If u have zombies jumping long distances (like in the time machine) I'd advice using the green screen, and masking to give it a shadow (for depth) (duplicate normal film layer, then colour grade, so it looks like it is all a shadow, then if you mask onto it, increase feathering, then it will look like a good shadow, I did I rough test with it on one of my videos :)) )
  • Thanks for the advice MrJ! I'll definitely look into it :) can i c your vid?
