Zombie Outbrick: Episode 58

30th Jul 2012, 12:00 AM

The argument between Chris and Officer Peterson intensifies...

As you may have noticed, this episode uses a special three-panel layout; this has allowed me to use much more dramatic wide-panel shots, which are meant to give the scene more impact. It also allows for a greater amount of dialogue in each panel, as I ended up needing the extra space.

For the last panel, there were originally two shots I had to choose from: the one you see in the finished episode, and one where the camera is further back from Chris, aimed slightly upward at him, with Officer Peterson's back to us. I almost couldn't decide between them, but I felt the shot I used for the last panel flowed better with the rest of the page.

Let me know what you think of this episode.

Aw snap--the finger's been pointed! Better watch out Chris! Mr. Crazy Cop-er has a gun and you just called him a murderer! Maybe you should save your OWN skin right now?

I love the panels getting closer to the main character. it really adds depth and suspense! Great job!

Hah, that's a very good point. Although you have to take the Boss into account - he seems to have the bigger gun, and he's already killed once, and he'd probably be on Chris's side - so if Officer Peterson shot Chris, it might quickly be over for the officer as well. ;) We'll have to see who makes it out of here alive, in any case.

And thanks! I'm glad to hear you like the way the shots work in this episode, that's definitely what I was going for!

It's good to see you commenting on ZO again - I suppose I should be doing the same on TMAOTTPT more often...

Ah yes, finger pointing and guns drawn.

It is excellent use of emphasizing emotions with the limited facial expressions of minifigures by zooming in on them.

Thanks Silver Fox, it seems to work surprisingly well for that purpose.

Most likely, yes, we will. ;)

Technically, the first time we see the undead in Zombie Outbrick is way back in Episode 11. They've been seen a few more times since then, as well - but there will certainly be more to come.

And yes, it certainly is hard work. From coming up with the story, writing the script for it, assembling/configuring the right set, photographing each frame, and then editing it all together, there certainly is quite a lot of work that goes into making each episode. I'm glad you appreciate it. :)
