Out of the Studio – AMCA Vs the Zombies

Yes, you read correctly Zombies!!! Let’s jump back a few months…I was contacted about possibly doing some behind the scenes photography and possibly some artwork for a small budget Indie Film, about a Zombie Apocolypse…yes another one (these films and TV shows seem to be all the rage). I must admit I did think about…

Not For Thee

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Not for Thee.”

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received that you wouldn’t give to anyone else? Why don’t you think it would apply to others?

This one was a bit hard, was not sure what to write: don’t drink, don’t start smoking, don’t wast your time on people who don’t matter and don’t waste money on things you don’t need……..same old, same old right? And then I thought of one thing, it probably does not apply to millions, but it certainly applied to me!! I am sure some of you may not even know what I am talking about, others who do, probably think I am a really big SOOK!

“Do NOT watch Walking Dead!”

I have seen Zombie movies and stuff before, I’m not a big fan of scary/gory stuff, but some of it is kind of funny; Shaun of the Dead, I enjoyed Resident Evil (watched all of them), so I thought hey it is very popular, so maybe it’s really good? But let me tell you; this shocked and freaked me out on a whole new level. The Gore, the Make-Up the physiological mind games, was way too much for me, literally had me hiding under my blankets – freaked out!. I lasted 3 episodes and didn’t sleep for 2 days, every time I closed my eyes, all I could see was stomach churning, nauseating body eating Zombies from hell. So sure everyone else can watch this show, I am sure the story line is great, but NOT FOR ME!!!

Never, ever again!!
