With the release of Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead, on Netflix, today is a making-of companion documentary that runs around 30 minutes in length.
The documentary is titled Army of the Dead, and is going to give you a comprehensive look at the filming behind the film. There are proper interviews of the main people behind the camera. It will also include extensive talking with the director itself that is Zack Snyder.
As per the updates, there are plenty of comparisons between the first zombie film of Zack Snyder, Dawn of the Dead. Through this documentary, you are going to see extensive breakdowns of all the VFX for the movie that was produced in the part of Framestore VFX. There were around 500 VFX shots taken for the movie and this included everything down to creating hordes of zombies to the viral sensation and the undead tiger zombie that was told ‘it is based on Carole Baskin’s animal sanctuary from the Tiger King’.
Probing further, the production itself has not filmed in the Las Vegas strip either so that you get to see everything how they managed to create Las Vegas in its eternity. And everything was created by Cedarleaf VFX.
This is not the first time that Netflix Originals is making out the companion documentary. Earlier this year only, The Queens of Gambit on Netflix came with one. There are many others also and this includes The Crystal Calls for Netflix’s, The Dark Crystal Series, Our Planet, and Unorthodox. We have advocated that Netflix is doing much more and we hope to see many more of these in the future.
Most of the companion documentaries end up on YouTube, but this is not the case with Army of the Dead.
