How Not to Survive a Zombie Apocalypse.


A documentary filmmaker interviews two video game streamers who recently released a “How to Survive a Zombie Apocalypse” guide. Mid-interview the unthinkable happens and the trio are stuck inside with little food and even less survival tactics as a real zombie apocalypse unfolds.


The process of coming up with the story was a lot of fun. We sat around as a family working out what Scott and Mo (the two streamers) get up to after the apocalypse begins and my son came up with the name “How Not to Survive a Zombie Apocalypse”. I originally wanted to act as the documentary filmmaker for the video and do the pitch in an emotional vlogging style to give the audience an idea of what to expect. I came up with the idea to beg the ABC for help, after I read the “Assessment 4 Help Section” written by my lecturer. Ultimately I think it’s a better idea for a pitch or kickstarter video. However, I believe that more atmosphere in the video would have made it more convincing. For example, an appearance by some zombies or Scott and Mo, would have shown a greater ability to deliver a completed show. Better audio would have also helped with the atmosphere. Unfortunately it was not shot during an actual apocalypse and cars kept driving past. Still lot of fun for the whole family.
