An interactive movie from Casio brand G-Shock about zombies is very dark:

Casio-GShock-Zombies

Play it over at the G-Shock microsite – fiveminutes.gs

Because I don’t mess around, I started off on difficulty level “hell”.  I didn’t make it far before I messed up on too many of the mouse patterns, and the dad (pictured above) revolver’d himself in the head all over the family pictures.  Not really what I was expecting from a company that makes watches.  Will Moms demand action on G-Shock now?  Will they demand action on Google for Chrome supporting HTML5?  With They demand action on all touchscreen and computer mice manufacturers?

I really don’t have the patience to keep playing the game and finding out what happens, but I have to say they definitely did a impressive job on the execution of this.  Product placement is obvious, but mainly because you knew in advance.  If you weren’t explicitly told it was a G-Shock promo, it’s not any more in your face than movies or TV shows are now.

Just when I thought zombies were done with…

Thoughts?  Anyone make it to the end?

From the description:

shot this with a Casio EX-F1 of my shooting my Browning 12 Gauge shotgun. The clips that are at the 4:5 aspect ratio were taken at 300fps. The other clips were filmed at 600fps. All of the footage is raw, no color grading/image adjustment was added. Sadly, the sun was on the left side of the gun, so everything on the right side is in shadow. I couldn’t turn my gun around and shoot the other way though.

Some of my thoughts on Digital SLRs:

The picture on the right, is of the camera that was used to take the footage.  Pretty interesting how it is a Digital SLR and not a conventional video camera.

From some recent “behind the scenes” footage I have seen, it seems that a lot of music videos are now being filmed with digital SLRs.  They offer manual focus, a plethora of manual adjustment, and high resolution, for much cheaper then you could get a conventional video camera with comparable features.  It even comes with a beautiful lens compared to most lenses you would get with video cameras in the same price range.

Check out the Casio Exilim EX-F1 at Amazon – HERE

At about 1/2 the price of the Canon 7D I am obsessed with someday getting, the Casio EX-F1 is likely a good value.
