Zombie Containment Unit Busy at Comic-Con

July 12, 2012 | Posted in AtmosFX Sightings, Making-of

It is hard to make a big impression at San Diego's Comic-Con – arguably the largest and most important conference of its kind. But that’s exactly what AtmosFEARfx did – with a little help from a vanload of subdued zombies.

The AtmosFEARfx team, of course, was also promoting Zombie Invasion!, one of our creepiest digital decorations. And with the help of our “Zombie Containment Unit” roaming the streets of San Diego, convention-goers gobbled-up our little stunt like zombies at a brain buffet.

We tricked-out our “Zombie Containment Unit” with four different projectors each displaying a different decoration on our back and side windows, plus a stereo system that allowed us to crank out some truly horrifying sound effects. It was one of the coolest mobile projection vehicles on the road.

The press ate it up, including the Los Angeles Times and the San Diego Union-Tribune. So did the convention-goers, as well as anyone else who saw us rolling along.
