COOL VIDEOS: Find out how much CGI is used in AMC's The Walking Dead

If you had a question about how much CGI is used in AMC's THE WALKING DEAD this featurette may put those questions to rest. It's a pretty cool breakdown of the various zombie effects and how it was being filmed on set.  In a way it's kind of shocking.  Based on previous behind the scenes featurettes and set images I assumed that the majority of the show was practical effects, but it seems that it's far from it.

Check it out:

I knew they used some CGI, but I guess it never clicked just how much.  Not that it deters me from watching the show at all.  In fact, the effects are pretty damn impressive as oftentimes I can't tell one from the other.  I mean, that's the general idea, right? 

Enjoy the video and check out THE WALKING DEAD on AMC, Sundays at 9/8c.  It's what all the cool kids are watching.

Extra Tidbit: Fans of the comic...there's already been talk of who may play the infamous Governor (John Hawkes, Tom Savini). Who would you cast?

Cool Vid

just another case of CGI being used as a TOOL and not the whole movie (or show in this case) The effects are seamless. I guess that accounts for the long season breaks lol I'm loving TWD alot! Great season 2 so far

someone wrote this on another site and I couldn't agree more..

"Glenn is turning into a pussy now that he's getting a little of it.
Lori is so goddamn annoying at t his point, the only thing she does is whine and stare with bug eyes.
Dale is scared of his own shadow.
Rick is too much of a wanna be leader, and not enough of a real one
Andrea only has one face- The I Need To Shit Face.
Carl is worthless- they treat that kid like he's 4.
T-Dogg- Typical marginalized black character so at least they have one but he has nothing to do but die soon.
Daryl

Daryl needs to fuck carol, then slap her around cause that's the only time shes interesting."

Title would have been more interesting if it read...

How much of a script is used in Walking Dead?

Still trying to figure it out. Huge fan of the comic and watch the show every Sunday but come on...its just basically repetitive lines throughout the show.

He looks like Danny Trejo in the comics, but I don't think that guy has the acting chops. I like John Hawkes. I also think it would be cool if it was Michael Madsen, even though they don't really look alike.

Well, now I don't need to see season 2. From what I've heard, these clips were probably the highlights. Great effects work, though!
