The first production photo from the upcoming zombie epic TV series 'The Walking Dead' is finally here. And it looks amazing.

I'm assuming this is an image that is straight from the books and the first issue of the comic when Rick is walking home and finds this zombie in the ditch - barely moving by a bicycle. Awesome stuff.

Also - a new set video entitled Zombie School is showing how some extras learned how to walk like zombies and get Director Frank Darabont's stamp of approval.

A zombie choreographer educates the extras on how to look cracked out and make the zombie walk believable.

The extras practice for hours until they are perfect.

And Darabont gives them his stamp of approval.

The end.

TV series with a decent budget and effects.
Have you never seen SG-1 or Battlestar Galactica?

Picture looks awesome, too bad the series wont be in B&W until the DVD.

@ keven

yeah, eyeballs are actually more likely to fall out before they deteriorate. and i base that on nothing.
blankofthedead - 6/10/2010, 4:22 PM
@keven- not sure man thats why i said it might now but either way if its wrong it still looks better with the eyes in

@Tea, My good good friend, you sir need help!! But if that help stops all your humerous banter than I'll be the first one at your door stopping all the shrinks! :D

@Keven-- as someone who has bugged an organ donation company for about three months straight (when I was doing research and setting out to write my zombie story...) I learned that the eyes deflate as soon as a person dies. This is because the liquid that is inside the eye no longer is pressurized, so it leaks out, so while they don't deteriorate quickly, they wouldn't look like eyes--more like used condoms dangling from eye sockets.

You're welcome for the visual.

Thank you for that contrast...

This is so cool, cannot wait!
CorndogBurglar - 6/11/2010, 5:31 AM
keven doesn't know what a used condom looks like, so...

lol :)

I can't explain how moist my panties are at the moment.

This series is just friggin amazing.

@ tea - "I'd give her the SHOCKER" HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!

CorndogBurglar - 6/11/2010, 10:09 AM
@ keven

yeah, i got a little too, so i can't talk, lol
McLovin - 6/11/2010, 10:28 AM
@ wussupman - what? what's that you said? Not reading the books??? WTF? Jesus Christ man! You don't know what you're missing out on!!! And no, I don't mean Jesus giving you the shocker. You must, MUST, read these books. They already stated that the show won't follow the story step by step, so you won't be doing anything to prevent yourself from enjoying the show. THESE BOOKS ROCK! Best and by far, most consistently AWESOME comic book on this planet Earth!

Oh and the topic of condoms ...

cause you never knoooow ...
MadDizzle - 6/11/2010, 1:08 PM
@keven...guess what, zombies arnt real either.
Betty - 6/11/2010, 1:28 PM
lol! to everyone.

MadDizzle-- Jesus was the Original Zombie. He eats our sins instead of our brains. Everyone, sin if you love Jesus!
