Behind the Scenes Video Shows Special Effects Behind “The Walking Dead”


AMC’s TV adaptation of The Walking Dead was a smash hit when it aired last Halloween and has since garnered quite the fan-following. The team responsible for the hit zombie show released a little-known behind-the-scenes video showing how the Walking Dead crew takes relatively tame sets and small numbers of zombies and turn them into the post-apocalyptic nightmare scenario filled with hordes of zombies that we’ve come to know and appreciate in The Walking Dead. The video also shows how CGI is used to alter the looks of several zombies, including the famous “missing-half-her-body-yet-still-crawling-around-a-field” zombie from the first episode.
