AVID Imports Zombies to Savannah

Written by Hans Tanner

 

A big part of this job is being comfortable with uncomfortable situations, so yesterday was just another day in the life on the Lennon Bus. When I was a kid, I never EVER liked to put on face paint when any kind of social gathering called for it. The fair, Harbor Fest, Halloween, it didn’t matter, no paint was to be put on my face.  The smell, the sticky texture, the weird looks you get from others, none of it has ever seemed even slightly appealing to me. That being said, when I was assigned yesterday to be transformed into a zombie I was not exactly thrilled at the idea…
 
However, I’d be hard pressed to recall a day I’ve ever laughed harder.  My brain slurping cohorts and I wreaked havoc throughout Savannah for the entire day. We filmed in a local graveyard, shot in dark alleyways, and crawled throughout the streets. Of course, scaring the snot out of unsuspecting civilians along the way. 

Being that it was Halloween, what better way to spend the night then to carry on the day’s activities at the local dance hotspot?  After a healthy serving of upper frontal lobe, Kevin and I were the last standing zombies. We hobbled our way into the middle of a crowded dance-floor and proceeded to “zombie seizure” our way around our victims.  Girls screamed, and guys stared in disgust as their partners no longer wanted to dance for some reason. 
All a cap to an epic day to say the least.  While I’m not flocking to don the zombie attire any time soon, so far the best day of my life on the Lennon Bus is the one I spent being dead.
