You've got to check out this great video test footage from makeup FX artist Steve Johnson that shows us what the zombies from Francis Lawrence's I Am Legend could have looked like if they didn't take the road of crappy CG animated zombies. It all came down to the fact that the director couldn't get the performances he wanted from the actors playing the zombies. I can understand that, but I think there was a much better way of doing it than using bad CG. Even though these effects an make-up didn't really work out for the film, I still think it's pretty cool.
Johnson is the same guy that released the Tim Burton's Superman Lives costume stuff. It's awesome that he's releasing this unseen and unused movie effects stuff. Check out the makeup test footage below and tell us what you think!
