Zombie Outbrick: Episode 23

I'm sure the paramedics will get here soon... or, perhaps not.

The policeman definitely knows something about what's going on... But how much?


I apologize for being 40 minutes late on this episode... This time it was my computer causing problems!


Anyway, unlike the rush job of Episode 22, for this episode I actually spent some time on photography. I tried to get creative with the "manual focus" setting on my newer camcorder (which I didn't have on my old one.)

Is the photography any better than usual? Or is it at least better than in the last episode?

The photography looks nice :) I think adjusting the manual setting works out great. You've managed to bring depth, which helps the severity of the situation :)

Thanks, MadameLecter!

Yeah, I hadn't thought about it like that before, but I suppose adding depth to the photography adds emotional depth to the story.

It all looks very good and a very nicely done build up for everyone to look at the officer and "what do you mean they're not coming?!"

Thanks, Silver Fox. I actually did a double-take at your comment... have you been reading my script? ;)(I suppose it is the most logical next step in the story, though.)

As an avid book reader and having watched a number of films and shows over the years, I've hit a point that it can often be easy to guess the script, tropes and lines coming. So it then becomes a sense of artistic and presentation that I'm looking for.

But yes, it would be the logical next step.

So don't worry if you're "predictable", I've been enjoying the presentation of the story and it's artistic sensibilities. I think you've hit the right stride and pacing to keep many coming back.

I suppose that the world has created a universal culture around storytelling, in which people (consciously or not) repeat the common elements in stories they have watched, read, or heard. This repetition creates a subconscious guide that tells us where stories are going or should go, depending on and compared to what we have witnessed beforehand.

It really is all in the presentation. I've seen many people scoff at James Cameron's AVATAR, claiming that "it's just like [insert one of several movie titles here], only with more sci-fi/aliens." I think that's entirely true, the basic underlying plot is quite similar to a number of stories that have been told many times before, only the presentation of that basic story is different.

How many people have scoffed at Star Wars for being "just like the Odyssey, only with sci-fi/aliens?" I haven't seen almost any, yet it's just as true of a statement. And yet, so many people like Star Wars more than the Odyssey. The story may be similar, but the presentation was one of a kind, and is what really dazzled people.

Anyway, thank you! I'm glad that you've been enjoying my presentation of this story. It's good to hear that I'm doing well with the pacing, also. I hope I'll be able to keep it up!

Cue dramatic music.

But seriously, let the man talk! he's trying to say something important.

Hah, if this was a movie, there'd definitely be dramatic music about now!

And you mean the wounded man? He's doing the best he can to speak, but in his condition, he's having a lot of trouble.

Why aren't the paramedics coming? Maybe it's because they're already...
DEAD!!

Either that, or they're all on their lunch break... ;)

Nice dramatic music, by the way.
