I’ve seen a lot of great stuff in the past few years as I’ve trawled the World Wide Web for the best content. I’ve seen fan fiction, fan films, fan games – but as a calling card for an independent film studio, this one takes the championship. Big-time.
These guys set up a first-person shooter scenario in their backyard, then randomly went on Chatroulette to see who would play it. When they found a user willing to type in “Start,” the show began, with said user controlling the first-person point of view via voice commands in a live battle against zombies and demons. I don’t know how many times they reset and did it all again, but the final edit suggests at least four and probably more.
No snark – I am blown away by this like a head-shot zombie on coke.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
