Zombies, zombies, zombies!! Everywhere you turn around these days there are zombies. Well, we couldn’t be happier! Here’s the zombie we created for Reliant Energy, and boy is he pretty!
The zombie is portrayed by our own key concept designer, Ian Joyner, who was selected from numerous Legacy crewmembers that tried out for the part, each one of them providing a horrific and totally “blackmailable” filmed audition for the role.
He’s your pretty standard zombie–rotting flesh, dead eyes, and remains of his last feed still on his lipless mouth. We did a foam latex applique for this zombie, including face, chest, and arms. Check out the images below to see the monstrous transformation!
So much effort went into transforming Ian for this piece, and in the final product you really only see the silhouette of his legs. Oh well, c’est la vie. See the Reliant spot below in its entirety. We still turned out a pretty creepy zombie that we can be proud of, and we can’t wait to sink our teeth into the next one, so bring ‘em on! Check back all month long for some awesome posts and behind the scenes views of some of our most deadly projects.
