Evaluation question NR. 1 !

How does your Media product :
a.) use, devellop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products ?
b.) represent particular social groups ?

So for the following comparison between our films forms and conventions and a real media products  I`m using the well known film "Shaun of the dead" because this film is a british film and furthermore its actually the best example for a zom-com.

We USED the same atmosphere kind of feeling for the audience as in Shaun of the dead. In SOD (shortcut) there are two main Characters which fight there way thorugh the film with sometimes kind of stupid behaviors as you can see loads of times in our film. I think there should be a ratio like difference between comedy and actual horror. I watched the film Shaun of the dead again and its like approximately 30:70 horror to comedy which we used as well round about ! What both SOD have and our film is that before the funny parts start there is a scary part first where the audience thinks that something scary is going to happen right now but then something funny happens like in our film the part in the toilet where we at the beginning can hear mysterios sounds out of one of this toilets and we have no Idea which one it is so we discover all the single doors to find the "maybe Zombie" but then we realise that its just a person who has diarreah. (hopefully funny joke).

What else we looked up is that our Characters are as simple as possible like not a long and hard understanding story behind them apart from that their parents died because that typicall in zom coms like here agaimn Shaun of the dead. Shaun , Ed and all the Characters all usual people without anything special, therefore its easier for the audience to get in  there position THEREFORE the film gets more realistic and better for the audience.

What we did which no other zom coms have done is that we broke some of the most important representations and stereotypes like for example that blonde persons are dumb and stupid but in our film the blonde person is the leader of the group or that asian coming people are violente, agrresive and angry which we broke again because my character is the scared one who cant defend himself and needs help of the blonde girl. Other stuff like the taller, bigger zombie is weaker then the small girl Zombie is a representation  break again , because usually the stronger persons are above the small person while in ours not. We also but in various points of the film irony in to make it all worse.

We tried to develop the cliff hanger kind of ending because there is like no film maybe one or two which have this featured. In our opinion a cliff hnager in this kind of style like in ours makes the audience wants to watch more and the point were suddenly an eye appears is like in the film `inception` where the film makers decided to confuse the audience in a way that leave a cliff hanger.

Shaun of the dead analysis ! 

In the opening scene of ‘Shaun Of The Dead’ there are hidden bits of horror, but its mainly comedy.
The target audience for ‘Shaun Of The Dead’ are person above 16 because as we all know the film it's kind of violente and the characters sewar a lot as well, it also contains some scene’s that should only be shown to a mature audience +18.
In the first few minutes of the film you can see how good the comedy is standing out; an example of this is where Shaun walks down the corridor half asleep like a zombie. This should trick the audience who is watching it because they're gonna think that he is a zombie although he is not obviously.
Comedy in the opening scene comes across as more important than horror ike 60:40 in my opinion. I think the reason for this is so it catches its audience’s attention more. The part for example where Lise and Shaun are discussing this kind of scenes make the film watchable because the audience is entertained by stuff like that and they want to find out if there relationship is going to get better or its stays so!
The two main Characters of this film are: Shaun and Ed, both characters are successful for the comedy side of the film and are ok for the horror in there own special way.
Shaun is the hero of the film as he gets himself and Lise through the problems and they stay alive through the film, although he is the unlikely hero because he has a few flaws, he is not a typical good looking main Character, intelligent hero, he is gutless and a pushover. Ede can also be classed as an unexpected hero as he sacrifices his life to save Shaun and Lise. Both characters are the wanna be's that become hero’s by saving the day, all be it in the end. ‘Shaun Of The Dead’ doesn’t have a bad gu, the only enemies in ‘Shaun Of The Dead’ are the zombies.
The directors of ‘Shaun Of The Dead’ used camera techniques to draw in the audience, for example in the very first shot, Shaun is in a day dream and Lise is trying to talk to him and he is ignoring her, this is comical as she becomes stressed out with him.
Another example is a both shot, you can see Shaun and Lise talking and in the background Ede is playing on the slot machine, this establishes the scene and shows one of the main sets used in the film.
It also shows Lise going on about her relationship with Shaun whilst Ede is swearing at the machine; this is very funny as it seems to Lise that he is swearing about what she is saying.
Sound is pretty important in this film as they add tension and mystery, ‘Shaun Of The Dead’ has two people talking and then they pause, this adds tension and mystery because you want to know what happens next and how they react to the comments 

Audience of Forsaken !

first a generell definition of horrorfilms:
Horror films are a movie genre seeking to elicit a negative emotional reaction from viewers by playing on the audience's most primal fears. They often feature scenes that startle the viewer through the means of macabre and the supernatural, thus they may overlap with thefantasy and supernatural genre. Horrors frequently overlap with the thriller genre. - Wikipedia

And now the definition of a comedy horror film:
In comedy horror film, gallows humor is a common element. While comedy horror films provide scares for audiences, they also provide something that dramatic horror films do not: "the permission to laugh at your fears, to whistle past the cinematic graveyard and feel secure in the knowledge that the monsters can't get you - Wikipedia

As you can obviously see, comedy horror is kind of an extension of JUST horror and thats why we have choosen comedy horror and not just horror because its a challenge to give the audience a fear feeling and laugh permission at the same time but if a filmmaker achieves this "effect" the reaction will be imense because thats what the audience is looking for ... comedy and horror at the same time and a horror comedy film's goal is not only the +18 age area they look specificly to persons under 18 as well so as you can see the end gross is way higher then just a horror film but as I said in the beginning, the producer needs to achieve either laugh and fear.

Lets take the ilm "Tacker & Dale vs Evil" in my opinion a perfect example because as a huge fan of this film I can honestly say that this film scared at the beginning the shit out of me because the film location was ecellently choosen which gave the whole film this noir feeling in the beginning and later on and on it went more and more funny instead of scary. If I now compare "Zombieland" with this film i notice that zombieland is from the beginning constantly armed with jokes but tacker & dale vs evil is building the jokes up and that is probably also the reason why it just made 4.000.000 dollars while Zombieland made over 100.000.000  dollar because its just a perfect example of horror comedy while Tacker & Dale vs Evil is something new and needs more attention ! 

So now to the audience, most zom coms or horror films look in the dark humor in depth because thats what makes a good zombie comedy film/ horror film and thats  why so many people like it. The only way a filmdirector can find out why and what people like on a film is ... just to ask them so I researched and found this website -->

In this questionnaire the people who were asked were 5 females and 5 males so fair survey. I noticed that every point in this questions was exactly related to our ideology, e.g. what sort of character ? stupid (my character)
what would you expect the caracters to be ? simple like in our film
and so on ...

I think people like to see in a horror-comedy film how the main characters getting on with their adventure and that the audience can see themself in the position of the characters so for example difficult characters could ruin this feeling because the audiece just cant get in the position of the actor and thats an important fact to look at . Furthermore the timing must be right so the audience is'nt ready for the fun moment therefore they laugh more because unexpected things are funny (proofen) and the age range is therefore 14- 50 because some jokes are a bit to hard to understand for children under 13 and some others are just to unfunny for people over 50.

but the MAIN MAIN audience is 16-19 because I thing they just really celebrate good zom coms and talk about them the whole day with friends and share them on social website and they are the main part of the zom com audience not just because they like the mix of dirty jokes and brutal violence they have something to think about and they're gonna show other people like family members the film and so on the film. Furthermore
16 - 19 years old persons go the most to the cinemas and they dont just watch a film ones like normal people they watch it 3 to 4 times if its a really good one because they just cant get enough and thats what a good zom com needs to have.

And its not just for males its for females as well because its just in most zom coms (apart from dead snow) not that realistic and they are not scared, they are happy because its funny. Ok some girls just watch films because they are scary but thats soemthing else.

FINAL FILM !! FORSAKEN !! finally ....

OH MY GOD, believe it or not but we have finnished this punnishment called "opening project" after really hard 2 weeks. I was not sure if its even possible to finnish it til today but I sat yesterday the whole day and today til now on the work and edited the Sh** out of our footage !

So before you ask some things I need to tell you :

- In the toilet scene this noise sound in the background is FROM the toilet not from us or so !
- there might be some sense gaps because its just insanly hard to organise EVERYTHING in 3 days with people who just have limited time so dont expect a blockbuster.
- As you might heared out the sound was re-recorded because we thought it makes it better ... but thats wrong next time I use the audio in the footage.

here again click on HD in the bottom box below to watch it in HD with better quali

(re-) shooting day 3

FANTASTIC !!! Just fantastic ... everything went fantastic in the last few days for Charlotte and me related to the filming and the fact that we had no problem with the ugly weather or the actors :) We both are now really happy because we were the only ones who were not finnished ... we even did not started so actualy its fair to say that we used the last days possible to make the film. Well done to charlotte who planned every single day we are filming and thought about the poster and of course to the people who helped us : Greg, Carley, Anthony, Flossi ! Thanks a lot

Here is a footage we did today like in the last minutes of filming because we had not much time of the fact that me and charlotte have both courseworks and we cant concentrate the whole day on media although that would be quite good. Ok that footage is like on of the first establishing kind shoots which we did to get some shots done so we dont need to concentrate later too  much on that shot because we still dont have it or on that one because now we have a sortiment of awesomenes !
  Unfortunatly not in HD because you just can post once a week HD videos on Vimeo ...

However, I need to say that I found some tiny tiny tiny continuity mistakes which are not that bad (if you are blind) no seriously, they are just some stuff like the sun is brighter on that shot then on that one but its not that obvious so we dont need to reshoot it I thing. The other thing is that we went to the shop today ... AGAIN and we asked for the permission of the manager to film in the shop but with our epic luck the manager did go like 5 minutes after we came so we asked one employer if we possible could get the number so we can call the manager which they gave us and Charlotte and me are going to call the manager tomorrow so we can finally do the 15 second scene !

The last thing I want to talk about is the issue we have with the voices and music because from my experience of previous films the editing of music and voices is damn the hardest part of the film. The voice line must be exactly the same, no echo, the music must fit to the situation, just by the way ... our film is probabyl going to be longer than 8 minutes so I needed for deception 3 days just for the audio stuff (voices, Music) and it was 3 min long so times 3 days by 3 to get 9 days of editing audio and we just have 4 left ... so I necessariely need charlottes help with that huge problem !

(re-) editing Day 1

Well, I was wrong as I said I need a few days til I can release the first real film footage .... because I've got it and I thing I've done quite a good job. So as we said in previous posts, we are going to make a film where the opening titles are like mixed up with the area so a bit like this french horrorfilm Mr. Earl showed us the opening of. I tried to get the best Match with the enviroment so no shaky text or bad masking.

Obiously, there is no music yet and the voices needs to be re-done seperately because it sounds bad in the footage. So what have I done to make the opening so as it is now:

  • First of I made a cut for the parts I needed
  • Then I took the footage tracked it in a seperate program called "Boujou" so I get the effect that the text IS actually in the enviroment without shakyness.
  • make the text
  • change fonts ( I went to the website to get my fonts for free)
  • Change color so it has this cinematic zombie survival look ( a bit)
  • Render ! thats it :)
So before you watch the clip press the HD button in the right corner to get the best quality ! Its important so you can see the details which you cant see with non-HD

(re-) shooting Day 2

With that introducing sentence I want to start this post. So we finnished 50% of the film yesterday I edited my ass of and the result looks quite good. Charlotte worked really hard on the script and time and organisation to make the film as good as possible.

Actually we planned to film at 2pm but unfortunatly its started to rain !?! Great, I just thought for a moment that our Film is totally riuned and there is no chance to be finnished til friday so I did the last possible thing a media student could do in a situation like that ! I preyed to the media god and he heared us. It stopped raining at 3pm and the sun dryed the ground so we had perfect conditions to film. Excited I messaged Charlotte to meet at 3:30 at the planned location which we did but charlotte came a bit late so I used the time to go to a shop were we once went because we tried to ask them wheather we can use the shop for a scene but they said no ... but as a motivated filmmaker I tried it again and they said we could come on monday again and ask the manager :D I was really happy about this because I knew this time it would be better then the last time.

At least Charlotte came and she told us she was waiting on the other side of the street but we just did not see her and she did not see us ... anyway we started to film the really beginning and the zombie scene ! In my opinion we have some epic awesome super special mega footage which is really good to color correct. We have now like 90% of the film we just need now some tiny little things and we are finnished.

Friday, 2 March 2012

(re-) Shooting Day 1

Finally we started today to film our newnewnew opening and we had at the beginning really good weather, every Actor was present and the trafic on the street was ok. So Charlotte and me agreed that she is going to get the 2 actors we need for that scene and I'm gonna ge my mum and my sister to film and to drive the car for the tracking shot. I prepared make up for the zombies, Clothes and some other stuff which could be necessary for the opening. Well, it started really good and we all did a really good job ... til the weather changed and one of our Actors told us that he needs to go because he had an appointment so we hurried up and after we hardly finnished our shots and everyone went I realised that I forgot some tiny bits of film material which we cant reshoot AGAIN so we decided that we just dont include some parts of the film.

So before we did all the shots me and Charlotte planned in detail (yes, we learned our lesson) all that what we need to do the script the Text and what kind of comedy we are going to use ... fortunatly it worked and without all the organisation we probably could'nt even do the first scene today!

I'm gonna send Charlotte later on some footage which she can prepare and edit while I'm doing the effects base part so we are hopefully finnished til next Friday and have a poster a Logo a trailer and this stuff :D Tomorrow we are going to film the first really part where zombies are appearing and the film really starts.... so be excited for the finnsihed film !

New start !

After the feedback of Mr. Earl we decided to reshoot the WHOLE film because of the wrong filming attitude at the start and just the wrong technique we used. We know that we have from now on nearly one month time to make the film which we are going to use with filming, filming, filming and editing of course ! Charlotte and I changed the story so we dont need loads of zombies and we will shoot now on with my new canon 550D. I know we have now an adventage against the others because of the better Equipment but I think its just fair if everyone uses everything they have to make the film as good as possible like Katy with her DIY steadycam. the main Idea of the intro should look like this:

The main Idea is that we put the credits on the walls and doors so it looks like grafity but as you noticed its still not edited and just the footage and we realised that its too shaky and we cant make the footage less shaky ... unless we get a car, which we have (my mum's) so we can use it as a tracking shoot and its hopefully not that shaky as if a person would hold it with the hands. You ask why that much work for that ? The answer is easy ! The most important part is the opening apart from that, the shots and all the camera movements and the edit of course therefore an opening like that should be perfect because it contains a long shot, tracking shot, editing elements, story and its originally. By the way we tried to get the permission of a super market to film a scene but without success eventhough the neighbour of charlotte worked in the shop ... but thats not important ! The essential thing is that we have our main part of the intro soon and we have time so wish us luck and hopefully we are finnsihed completely til the 25.02 !!!

Questionnaire and feedback to Mr.Earls feedback

After I sat at friday the whole day on the editing of the rough cut I rendered it out had some problems with the render setups but I fixed it and after I uploaded it on Vimeo and post it on my Blog I became quite soon afterwards Mr. Earls critic and  read through it... of course I can understand what he is trying to achieve. To motivate us to make it better and better so I try to answer some questions he had as he gave us the critic.
1:The first scene is a little odd    --> We tried to get this freaky "scary movie"," Shaun of the dead" style thing. So pointless actions but you need to see the full film to understand whats actually going on. Cant explain it now really good.
2. Is the 2s black at 0:30 one of the points where footage has vanished? --> nope, thats just bad edit but here again I'm gonna fix it (or Charlotte)
3. I would suggest treating the footage to make it a little more filmic (i.e. using the cineon converter, for example) --> I'm not sure if I understood it right but as I said in my other post see ( I use after effects to get the film look
4. The footage is VERY shaky - is this deliberate?  --> its basicly our Idea we had at the beginning to make it shaky so we have this realistic effect that when the audience is watching the film they imagine to be IN THE SCENE and watching the whole situation. I know that it can ruin the effect badly if its too shaky but its really not THAAT shaky that you cant focus on a point in my opinion, 
5.Is there a reason for switching from hand-held to tripod-mounted? -->   We did not think about that but I guess it would be definetly better if it would be a bit shaky there as well... well I might just make a digital shake so we dont need to reshoot everythink. 
Thank you again for the detailed feedback which gave us some stuff to do for the future and I hope everything is going to work til the deadline... lets hope !

So here we go with the questionnaire: 
would you watch a film which is about a city which got attacked by a hostile country whereas nearly everyone got infected with a virus which changes the DNA sequence of humans and turn them into a "Zombie" but 2 siblings who lost their adoptive parent try to survive and kill as many Zombies to just stay allive. The adventure of their life has started. 

We asked 8 people if they would watch that film and pay money to watch it in the cinema...

We found out that 6 would definetly watch it one of them would watch it online for free (stream) and one person would'nt watch it. 

We asked why...

the main reasons:   
1. We are the actors
2. Sounds like fun and the last good film like ours is years old .
3. nice story 

We asked what else they would like to see:

They said a lot of funny events and stuff that entertains them. They want to see some "glory moments" where they get touched (emotional parts) but I think they were just jokeing at that point. And what all of them said that the effects must be good and not cheap like a lot of films. 

Saturday, 11 February 2012


here is the mid and nearly end part of the film. But we edited really rough so even the sounds we actually dont want to use are included and not that many special effects no music no color grading there are some gaps which are not filed which we need to reshoot as well but In my opinion its really good. I hope Charlotte will like it too because she said how approximately she wants to have it and I tried my best. I accidently used the wrong render codec so its not 1080p HD but 720i HDTV ... Its actually the same from the size and image. Charlotte and me are going to edit the next days as hell so we have the film completly finnished til friday. That video you are now going to watch is NOT edited, NO music or sound. Some parts are missing. You cant hear what we are saying at the end because we are going to edit it. We did not change the color and no titles and credits because this is the middle part of the film so dont wonder. Its really JUST the cut. By the way... while redering out 5 seconds of the footage got lost.

Friday, 10 February 2012


Its time... today we probably ( 90%) shoot the last thing we need which is the beginning of our film so the most important part. Originally we decided to make this usual credit thing like that --->

But now we decided that we want to make something more risky namely something I just learned new and should look really good because I want to use special color grading style which when mixed together with the opening will look awesome ! here is kind of that what we want to achieve !!!!     

Just instead of the flowers credits and no black and white and the street is like empty so we are the only one and with just a bit luck everything will work today. The credits we are going to use are arranged like that :    A SACstudio production presents
                                  A Steven Charlsberg film
                                  After the Idea of Dreamirworks
                                  Charlotte Patterson
                                  Amir Yarahi
                                  Film Titel: Legacy

Summary of work and everything at the moment ...

We finnsished filming the end of the film and the middle part of the opening so we just need the most important part now which is the opening with the titles and logo ! We have our Intro thats good so we have more time for other stuff like editing.... well, editing. I am gonna teach Charlotte in the next days some usefull editing technics which she can use in future as I know now that she wants to make some editing stuff as well. I did not know that otherwise I would let her do all the editing stuff ...but now nearly at the end I still will teach her. I have 3 different programes which I work with.
Adobe premier pro CS5
for editing and adding music, FX and transitions.

Adobe After effects CS4

for color correction, SFX and graphic design

Cubase SX3

For adding own made scores, beats and music.

So summary of our postion: 3 days left to post our rough edited shortfilm which we still need to do but and we hope that the snow dont disturb us because that would be realllly catastrophic... I think the only problem we had and still have is the conversation which is just not really present in case of our sureness that we will finnish everything in time and we dont need to worry and just go with the flow but obviously that "techniqe" did not work and we need to change it as soon as possible to get it done and finnsih it finally !

Changing of Time !

OUR PLAN IS NOT WORKING THAT WELL AS WE THOUGHT ..... so we need to change our shooting times and we need to cut the film because obviously our actual organised film is way too long! Maybe because we just wanted to make it really good and as much realistic as a film :/  However, we just cut the actual end fight where we originally wanted make the credits but now we are out of time and its just better if we make the credits in the begining. I had a plan B as well if we fail the whole work, so I made over the weekend a nice horrorshortfilm with opening credits and ending credits. But now that we reshoot the scence again we dont need to use my film.

Furthermore, we dont need to run after all our actors for the end scene because they are not a part anymore of our film so less pressure !

Almost certain Intro !

We are miles behind and til the filming starts I started making the intro and the detailed music choice now. We still want to keep the name SAC Studios because I just used it in all my films I made in this course and it brings luck so I want to keep it and I try to convince Charlotte to take it as well ! However, we try to make the film as good as possible so I made the best I possibly could make and the end result looks like that:

I chose this kind of intro because its original, entertaining and just shows that SAC Studios Movies are "oversized" and yeah thats it :D

Color Correction is a great thing !

We just started now really and everything is prepared... Actors, time, script, Locations. The only problemes are the environmental things like weather and wind. Hopefully we are finnished on Friday with the shooting part and I start then starting editing it. It's going to be incredible hard because we dumbs decided to make it REALLY good and like a whole film and we forgot how hard it sometimes can be to make such long-winded projects but I think its for both of us a really good challenge. I allready started thinking about the color correction and music we are going to use and I'm quit happy with that one which I made with another special program called magic bullet Mojo looks. Here to comparison:

                                 ORIGINAL FRAME --->


As you can see the corrected one has more color in it and it looks more professionel and it is easier to deliver to the audience than the original one. For the Music we thought about a mix of classic horror film ambient music and for the main fight that song ...  its just epic and fits perfect with the slow-mo we want to use and I'm quite sure it is gonna be EPIC !

Saturday, 14 January 2012

Important things !

Me and Charlotte started with filming because there is not just one location we need to film. There are looots ... and we need to have a looots of actors as well so we started early to avoid delays! What we need before we shot is in our opinion:
- Script
- Budget
- Location
- Script breakdown
- Casting
- Shot List
- Storyboard
- Line the Script
- Time the Script
- Shooting Schedule
- Gear
- Permission for specific Locations

We did the mistake that we did not plan everything in detail so the first day shot was not as good as we thought it would be ... I made a short film with bad cuts and special effects to just show how it would look til now. But we re-shot it again because it obviously looks horrible :D

So now we know that we dont have that much time and we must hurry up for the shoots because it gets dark realllly fast and we discussed like 70% of the day. So next time we have an organised plan with detailed shots and everything else important. Charlotte made a brief storyboard to visualise our ideas.

Analysis of "Dog house" !

I've chosen Dog house because its that kind of film we want to make and its a popular one as well.

0:00-0:20   The first few seconds the producer logos of course come up first in that typical scary and dark style with no music and black background. No wonder it's a horror movie ... But there were no popular producer logos with like "lionsgate" or "warner bros.", "universal" or all the other ones which are famous for there horror movies. So I expected as I first watched the movie a total crappy Film.

0:20-0:27  Nice establishing shot of London (can see the buckingham palace), which is like moving forward like a zoom in but its not a zoom. I thing they used that movement to make it look exciting and not boring. After that shot the audience can see like in a long shot a few houses of the lower class I would guess. You can hear in the background like police sounds as well so that represents that people in lower classes live in criminal areas.

0:28-1:00   A "god-view" shot as I call it where we can see from above whats going on. It is 1pm and the man is still in the bad and all around the bed is food lying. The mise-en-scene and the fact that he lives in a lower class style represents that this kind of people are lazy and live like pigs and have no real life. Later on in the movie it gets even more worse...  Something I noticed is that everyone of the boys has got the same phone sound. It might be a running gag because this song appears like 20 times in the film. To show the audience who is who they wrote every characters name in that comic style while a freeze frame 0:47.

1:04-1:50   Middle shot of another guy who just called his friend, which get a shoe from an angry woman against the head. He is like the "macho" or "womanizer" of the group as we can find out in there conversation as he forgot her name and she attacked him. They used the mise-en-scene really good here. The womans black dress connotes like danger and that the man is driving a sports car although he has no actual money just support the "macho" fact of him. The same name effects on him as well.

2:00- 5:00  the same what I described above occurs again and again just with other guys with other personalities. So I don't analyse them. In all they have one thing in common. They all have problems with woman or with there wifes so they meet each other and go for a trip somewhere to chill out.

I personally really liked that movie because its fuulll of representation of the bad style ... and I just like the humour which is really unique and all that Ideas they used and the music was just perfect in harmony with the situations and the camera movements were at some points really epic ! So I just recommend to watch that film :)

Samantha and Drake are walking in a park. First shot of the ground where ketchup is on. (should look like blood). Drake droped his ketchup accidently. Actually he wanna hit his hot dog. Conversations between sam and drake. After a while the camera shows the whole park in an establishing shot but there is no one there. Nearly the whole city is in the huge baseball arena in the city where the preseident is anouncing important things. Just Drake and Sam do not care because society is and never have been something for them so they did not go there.
At the same time as everyone is there a massive flying Airplane/baloon is crashing in the arena an releases a gas which is used for experiments. It contains animal cells which are hyper-reactive with human cells. The ballon transportet that gas to carry it to the profs but than the accident happened. So everybody who was in the arena got infected with the hyper-reactive animal cells... The adventure of Samatha and Drake starts !
Next day shot in the apartment of them how they are chilling on the coach while drake is watching TV Sam is cooking something . Later she joins Drake and suddenly a TV impotant news come up where a TV speaker is telling whats going on, on the streets and shows some pictures of that what happend the day before. both shot of sam and drake in front of them which is fast get closer to them and imidiatly a long shot of the street in point of view shot, where they can see the "Zombies". Sam: He was right.. but what now? Drake: Get weapons and finnish them  Sam: But we don't know if we are allowed to kill them or not [TV speaker disrupt: It's allowed to kill them even with weapons]but... we even don't know what they have... [ disease] ... but, how should we protect us [it's recommended to hide in various places or protecting organisations... by the way, the most efficient way is it to attack them with vitamins because they are not resist against it and dont let them bite you of course  ] And what if .. [ shut up now ]  Sam and Drake:  ....

Thats it at first. I did not finnish it because I need to do It with Charlotte.Furthermore its just a rough Idea. If Charlotte agrees we might use this Idea but we change it in many ways later.
