This last week I got to do a fun, quick zombie job for a short film.
The gag is that a kid in a movie theater sees a young couple kissing a few rows ahead of him, then, freaked out by the scary movie, imagines they're zombies tearing at each other's flesh. So it was just a one shot reveal.
Except for the gory bits on the male zombie's neck, it's all just highlight and shadow with creme makeup, and a little dry blood. I may have gone a bit too subtle, but I didn't want to push it too far, since the amount of innards getting pulled out of him was already going to be a little over the top.
Sydney Ross, who did the beauty makeup for the shoot, shot this video from the monitor of the tearing flesh gag while I was standing by with extra blood.
They had to go to lunch in makeup. I'm sure passersby were a little perplexed.

On his neck is a silicone prosthetic molded off of this quickie sculpture I did of a bite wound, with red stringy latex for her to bite and pull and tear.
