So do we upload a video before February 15th?... Or is this going to be like other battles where you give us a key word, we have two weeks, etc.?

You get a keyword to include in the vision then have two weeks to post, and the voting continues for another 2 weeks. So 4 weeks in total from 15 Feb 2011.

Be accurate with your moves too. If you're still learning how to spin say so in the moves box, so we don't judge you as an accomplished spinner.

Yep you're right. The fun battle is more for feedback and to give beginners a taste of battle, to see if they want to do more or just watch. Treat it like a personal training bout to compare yourself against others, with the general public voting.

Once we've got all the poll stuff and rules settled in we'll be doing a formal Championship season, with lots of battles at different levels. But that won't be until after we've got the system smoothed out.

Which brings us back to the fun battle. So work it if you want, don't hold back, focus more on your personal development than what others are doing at this stage.

hehe nah the keyword is secret and only announced at the start of the battle.

You have to write that on a bit of paper and let the cam see it at the start of your shuffling so we know the footage is made in the battle time.

Can't use computer text because you could use old footage and just superimpose it. So it needs to be something tangable in frame as proof.

So instead of just getting boring with it, you can have fun where you place it, do calligraphy, artwork or whatever as long as the keyword is visiable at some stage.

It'll just be a simple word like KEEP.

When people are getting used to the idea, we'll introduce theme words, so your shuffling and music have to be based on the theme or the keyword.

We had a short film festival here in Melbourne in the oldskool that used an object such as a tennis ball that had to be included in part of the plot or in frame on a short film that had to be shot on super 8mm film. And you had 48 hours to deliver the completed film undeveloped straight from the camera and the first time anyone saw it was at the festival screening. It was always sold out, that was the only problem.

That technique btw was called editing-in-camera and how the very first motion picture cameras where used. You didn't shoot, develop, then edit. You stopped shooting and started again with the next shot. So you just pressed stop.

Then you'd have the whole film usually 2-3 mins developed and that was the completed movie.

Some of the short films were very good, with actors, props sets, different locations, all shot over a weekend.

no worries, so yeah we can play around with all sorts of tasks, challenges etc. Different timelines.

Oldskool roleplayers had weekly meetup games that went on for months. Huge epic type games, usually between rival werewolf and vampyre clans involving locations around town. It's the sort of thing that lead to the Melbourne Zombie Shuffle, with gamers in costume going enmasse to public places for a laugh, like watching a hoard of zombies press the button to cross the road and waiting for the lights to change, surreal.

Here' some pics and the flyer

Check out the rules too !




Because there are a number of zombie shuffle virgins this time around, there are just a few simple 'rules' that need to be obeyed so that the day can be enjoyed by all (including human bystanders) with a minimum of capsicum spray/arrests/truncheon-usage/annoying Today Tonight reports/etc.
Just because you are a zombie, doesn't mean you must also be a dickhead.

1. NO defacing public property, under any circumstances. This includes shop fronts, windows, merchandise, billboards, etc etc. Blood and guts goes on the zombies, or on a banner/sign if you want to carry one, not other people's stores, belongings or faces.
1.a. Try to stay out of shops where possible to ensure rule 1. is maintained.
1.b NO carrying weapons of any sort, particularly realistic-looking ones. Your zombieness is enough, thanks!
2. NO intentional frightening of children/the elderly/animals. Seriously.
2.a. However if you have/are a child/old person/animal who WANTS to participate, then you are welcome to!
2.b. Above all, respect the public's personal space! If you need to drip blood on someone, do it on a fellow zombie - that's what they're there for.
3. Stick to the shuffle route (Carlton Gardens > La Trobe St > Swanston > Fed Sq > Southbank > Crown riverbanks).
4. Obey the road rules! Mainly because we don't want any zombies getting killed (again) by cars/trams/etc, but also because it is hilarious to see zombies pressing crossing buttons, waiting at red lights, etc (see event photos).
5. Just in case we haven't made it abundantly clear, don't be a zombie dickhead! Play by the rules and let everyone have a great day.

ZOMBIE SHUFFLE FAQs
Q. Dude, WTF?
A. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zombie_walk
Q. So what do we have to do to take part?
A. Dress as a zombie (because you are one, right?) and lurch/shuffle/stumble through the city then congregate at the end point. It's simple, really.
Q. Can I invite my friends?
A. You bet! The more zombies the merrier.
Q. Can I make a flyer to give out at my gigs/uni/self-help class?
A. Yes! Just make sure it has all the necessary details on it (including an abbreviated version of the zombie rules).
Q. Can't I just walk alongside the zombies and laugh/point/take photos?
A. Don't be boring - wouldn't you rather dress as a brains-hungry living corpse and carry a sign saying "GOT BRAINS?" (or something wittier) than be one of THOSE people who comes to costume parties wearing a "funny" hat and an embarrassed expression?
Q. How do I make myself look like a zombie?
A. There are loads of sites with how-to info on theatre and FX makeup; both Backstage (Kryolan) and Bernards' Magic Shop have been listed in this event's 'Posted Items' if you need a makeup supplier.
Q. What sort of zombies?
A. Any you like! You can come "traditional" Romero style, Danny Boyle "rage" zombie, spooky Haitian voodoo zombie, and so on, provided you're a) the living dead and b) you want BRAAAAIIINS.
Q. Can I come as a 'themed' zombie?
A. Yes! Themed zombies add some colour and movement to the day and are hilarious - past efforts include Commonwealth Games zombies, wedding day zombies, lawn bowls zombies, Swiss Miss zombies...
Q. Can I come as a vampire/werewolf/mummy/Wolverine?
A. No, der, this is a zombie shuffle. Unless you want to get into some sort of meta horror mashup and come as a vampire zombie, but that's just confusing.

Well we could actually do a Zombie Shuffle Battle, with an extra catergory for costume and make-up. So you'd have to shuffle in costume without bits of your face falling off. hehe
