    This is practically odd but I can say very creative as well. I had fun watching! Thanks for sharing

    Well some people call it "creativity." And look at that, some of those people include the contest judges. Imagine that?

    Logic and linearity have nothing to do with the adolescent mind. This time and dimension - jumping stream of consciousness reminds me of the stories that result when the teacher divides a middle school class into small groups, gives them a theme, tells the group to have one person write a paragraph, then randomly pass the story to another person in the group to write the next paragraph, and so on. You end up with something entertaining and somewhat in line with the general theme, but if you dissect it for structure you'll almost certainly be disappointed. Rather enjoy the emotional journey through the amped mind of American adolescents.

    Mad props, Joe. I don't know if you were simply a facilitator or if this was your inner adolescent at work. I thought it was ridiculous until I approached it with the right frame of mind.

    No. I guess you don't.
    Come on man- its constructive criticism- No one is attacking you. Lets use this opportunity for professional development and be good chums about it.

    At least there was no goat screaming like a human. I dunno... that might have helped. Suggestion: Write the whole story down first and then read it aloud to someone who has never heard you talking about the idea. Does it make sense to them? Edit your story until they "get it".

    I actually tried to shoot at the local dump but they wouldn't let me. This was much more fun, and smelled better too.

    Apologies for the late commentary.

    I like the concept and really dug the green screen effects and zombie makeup and acting. Nice music, too. The 28 years later transition was great!

    The overall concept didn't quite work for me. So the zombiepocalypse was caused by throwing away things that should be recycled? And you can prevent that by recycling? But then there are still zombies? Each of the transition moments was well done but the logical through line was too muddled for me.

    The look of the normal scenes was a bit off as well. There was something about the saturation coupled with crushed shadows that didn't work for me.

    Overall, though, you put zombies in a recycling ad! That's pretty cool. I happened to like the look of the green screen zombie scenes. Nicely done.

    One of the ideas I was toying with was a apocalyptic future because no one recycled. I'm glad to see someone did that idea. I think you had some good editing spots there. I liked the spin blur where you see all the people standing around when you go to the future and some of the cutting during the zombie section. The green screen part didn't look realistic as far as making it look like the zombies were actually walking around in a dump but it was fun to watch. I saw keithlango mentioned using a little bounce fill to help with the lighting but I saw in your spin zoom one of the actors was holding a reflector! Maybe shooting at a different time of day would have helped even out the exposure?

    Well my computer died, and I was kneeling at a strange system at Best Buy, so one line is all I had time for.

    The plastic in the recycling mutated the virus, duh.

    Well Joe after reading all your snarky critiques it is now my turn to unleash upon you the wrath of a thousand zombies!

    And I shall be as serious with you as you were with others

    First, you tried to bite more than you could chew with the green screen. Compositing is a highly technical art and you couldn't sell it to me that those zombies were actually standing in front of a huge pile of garbage.

    Then, 28 years after failing to recycle why would people be turned into zombies? It is common knowledge that zombies are provoked by a virus, not un-recycled garbage.

    And finally why are zombies throwing garbage at the viewer? If zombies are known for one thing it's eating brains, not tossing garbage. And your zombies even have blood on their faces so they must be regular zombies! If they have picked up garbage throwing from some now extinct humans, this has not been properly explained...




    I'm just messing with you Joe.
    However, as a writer I think you should know better than shooting down other people's creative work with a snide one liner, especially in a friendly contest like this one.

    I'm digging the 28 years later nod to 28 days later?? Gotta love a zombie flick!

    Ha!
    No - this didn't grab me as a PSA for recycling...

    But your style has real flair.
    I bet you could make some way above average music videos!
