This helps portrait the zombie WAY more dangerous than your average zombie-shuffle variety
We should actually have filmed the scene twice!
While it seemed like a good idea at the time, simply speeding up the clip made my movement seem jerky and unnatural. And I wanted my movement to seem natural so that the incredible speed of the zombie seemed super human by contrast.
So I spent a bit of time cleaning up the shot and removing myself from the scene using a clean plate (an image of the scene without anyone in the shot) and some masking
Let's tweak the timing of the footage to give the zombie some more speed!
