Ever wonder where all those bodies come from that AMC gets to staff the endless hordes of zombies appearing (almost) every week on The Walking Dead? No, they don’t raid the local graveyards and reanimate the corpses using the demonic powers of necromancy (I know, that’s what I thought at first too). Turns out some dude has to build them, using a mixture of living people and special effects mastery.
Greg Nicotero, the main FX guy for The Walking Dead has released a video that gives fans a little tour of his studio. He shows how some of the zombies come to life along with providing a few teasers as to what we should expect on the visual side of the coming season.
I’m think this guy is having way too much fun and might, perhaps, need a few hours of counseling. Still, the FX look pretty cool and season 3 should be a blast.
Look for The Walking Dead season 3 to premiere on October 14th.
Thanks to ComicBookMovie for the heads-up.
