America’s Finest Zombies Want YOU!

America’s Finest Undead are looking for America’s FINEST zombie! Well, two of them to be exact. We need two of the best zombies Comic-Con has to offer to help lead our horde through the streets of San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter for our 7th Annual Comic-Con Zombiewalk. Think you have what it takes?

If you’re attending our walk on Saturday, July 20th, you’re eligible to participate in this opportunity! Between now (yes, RIGHT NOW) and 11:59PM (Pacific) on Sunday, June 30th, we want you to show us, with photographic evidence, why you should be at the front of the undead pack. You will need to zombify yourself and pick a creative way to show us you’re the best representative of America’s Finest Zombies. Have your zombie alter ego lead a crowd of zombies (or living) through your town… attend a concert and crowd surf… shake the President’s hand… win a spelling bee… whatever it is you think shows off your abilities to exemplify the best our horde has to offer. Invade your town with your rotting charisma and charm the brains out of them… then take a picture!

We will select one zombie participant from Twitter and one zombie from Facebook. You may submit once on Twitter and once on Facebook (two submissions maximum per person), but the scenarios must be different for each submission. These two zombies will have the following bestowed upon them:

  • Official title of 2013 San Diego Zombiewalk Grand Marshall with an official sash declaring your position to the world!
  • Zombie prize pack including a zombiewalk t-shirt and a plethora of goodies from our partners! (List will be updated throughout the month.)
  • A private zombie makeup tutorial, either in person (SoCal residents only) or via Skype, from an industry SFX professional!
  • The opportunity to be at the front of the horde during the walk… that’s right, you’ll be the first zombies everyone sees as we shuffle and shamble through downtown San Diego!

To participate, you must be 18 years of age or older. Parents/guardians may submit a photograph on behalf of a child, but the parent/guardian must accompany the minor during the full walk. You don’t need a Comic-Con badge to participate and no purchase is necessary. Transportation and to/from the event and accommodations will not be provided. You must “Like” our page on Facebook and/or follow us on Twitter (and still be doing so, as of the event) to be eligible.

To submit via Facebook:

  • Go to http://www.facebook.com/sdzombiewalk.
  • In the area to post to our wall, click “Photo/Video” and post your eligible photo along with a description of the photo (location, scenario, etc.).
  • Tag yourself in the photo and tag us in the photo.
  • We’ll post it our gallery. The picture that has the most “likes” by 11:59PM (Pacific) on Sunday, June 30th will be declared the winner, amongst the Facebook submissions.
  • If the winner is unable to attend and/or participate in the walk, the zombie picture with the next highest amount of “likes” at the deadline will take their place (and so on, if the top “like” receivers are unable to attend/participate).
  • To vote for an entry, go to our album “America’s Finest Zombie! Pick YOUR Walk Leader for SDCC 2013!” on Facebook and “like” the one zombie you feel best represents America’s Finest Undead.

To submit via Twitter:

  • Publicly tweet your eligible photo using your account on Twitter.com (make sure your account isn’t private or we will likely not see your submission).
  • Mention us (@sdzombiewalk) in the tweet and use the hashtag #sdcczombies
  • Describe the location and scenario in the photo.
  • We will RT all submissions.
  • The submissions via Twitter will be reviewed by a panel of judges – Barb S., fearless leader of When Nerds Attack (@SDCCnerdsattack / Facebook); Gregory Burkart, writer (FEARnet) & composer;  Jennifer Muzquiz, director of ZombieWalk:SanDiego – and based on creativity, enthusiasm, and whom the judges feel best exemplifies the spirit of Comic-Con and ZombieWalk:SanDiego… a winner will be chosen!
  • If the winner is unable to attend and/or participate in the walk, a runner-up will take their place (and so on, if the top “like” receivers are unable to attend/participate).

By submitting a photo via Twitter or Facebook, you are giving us permission to post them on our Twitter account (@sdzombiewalk), Facebook page (facebook.com/sdzombiewalk), and our website (sdzombiewalk.com), as well as using your likeness for promotional purposes. Full credit for the photograph will be given. All minors must have a parent or guardian submit a photo for them or they will be deemed ineligible. We reserve the right to void any submission not meeting our content standards as well as voiding any winner deemed to be manipulating/cheating/gaming the voting process unfairly. ZombieWalk:SanDiego are not affiliated with Comic-Con or Comic-Con International. ZombieWalk:SanDiego are not responsible for any technical errors, natural acts, or other factors which may prevent you from participating. No monetary compensation or substitutions will be awarded. No monetary value is placed on the winning experience or prize packs. Winners will be announced on Saturday, July 6th via Facebook, Twitter, and on our website.

Photographing/Videoing the Zombie Horde

Every walk, especially around Comic-Con, we receive many requests from photographers and videographers looking to capture the zombies via their chosen medium. And we are happy to oblige almost all requests, however, we ask photographers and videographers – both professional & amateur – familiarize themselves with the following:

* I’m a photographer/videographer and would like to take pictures of/film the walk. Can I? Where can I go to do this?
Yes, we love photos & video. Zombies are hams and we enjoy playing to the cameras. Unfortunately, we do not have a specific staging area for most of our walks. If we do have one, it will be included in the individual walk details. If there is no such information, please plan on tagging along with the group; remember to not stop our group at any time and don’t block the flow of regular foot/vehicle traffic. Please do not ask zombies – even small groups or individuals – to stop “for a quick picture” along the walk route, as they will fall behind the horde and it creates more chaos than already exists (as well as impeding the flow of traffic).

* Where can I best view the zombies?
This depends on the walk route. We don’t have a regular walk route, other than when we’re in the Gaslamp Quarter. For Comic-Con, we generally stick to 5th Avenue in the Gaslamp Quarter. For these walks, we highly suggest patronizing one of the MANY fine eating establishments along 5th Avenue and asking for patio seating. You will get a GREAT view of the zombies and enjoy a delicious meal at the same time!

* Can I take photos or video of your zombies to sell and/or promote my killer item/idea/movie?
You are NOT welcome to use ANY photos or video you have taken at the walk/event for commercial purposes unless you have permission (a signed release) from ZombieWalk:SanDiego in advance AND you have the subject(s)/their guardian(s) sign a model release. If you or anyone you know shoots pictures and/or video for non-commercial or commercial purposes, please contact us afterward, so that we can post it (with credit and a link to your site, of course)! Zombies love to see themselves in action.

* Can I hire your zombies to promote my killer item/idea or participate in my zombie movie/photoshoot/etc.?
YES! We regularly cast zombies from all over southern California, for everything from music videos to movies to web series (+ everything in between) and to participate in guerrilla marketing solutions & promotional events. Feel free to send us a message with specific details on your project and we’ll get back to you ASAP. We’re also available for photoshoots, should your portfolio need some undead awesomeness!

—–
This is what we advise our zombies of, as participants in the walk:

* Having your photo taken as a participant:
By participating in the walk, you acknowledge that you are aware that face and/or likeness will be posted all over the internet and elsewhere and that you’re cool with it. We will point out our zombie-approved photographers at the beginning of each walk (onward from October 2010).

Please ask for credentials and contact information from anyone taking your photo. Make sure to ask if they are taking it for commercial purposes. This means they will be profiting off of your image in some manner, whether attempting to sell you the print or selling the digital image file to you or other people.

You have a right to refuse to participate in the photograph if it is for commercial purposes and/or if they will not show you their credentials. Do not allow them to tell you differently. Feel free to block the shot (as long as you don’t touch the photographer or their equipment) by holding your hand or a prop up to block your face or by turning your back or by walking away.

We do not encourage commercial photography at our events, because we know you put in a lot of time, effort, and money into outfits & makeup, so we disagree with the idea of photographers being able to make a large profit and not sharing it with you for your hard work. The walks/events are for YOU to have FUN, not for them to pay their bills :)

—–

The zombie participants have the right to refuse your photo/video request. Please respect that. Do not chase the zombies, do not ask them to do anything which violates our walk guidelines or actual laws. Use your common sense and be respectful of the horde. We hold these walks for the participants and spectators to have fun. Not so you can pay your bills or get free action shots for your zombie movie from unpaid & uncredited (and unauthorized) extras. If you are press/media, please be sure to credit us properly (ZombieWalk:SanDiego) and consider including a link to our website and/or our Facebook. It would be greatly appreciated.

As long as you are willing to follow the above guidelines, we are more than willing to have you accompany us on our walk and we look forward to eating… errr… meeting you!

Con of the Dead – #ZOMBIFYSDCC Afterparty!


Friday, July 13th, 2012 * 6:00PM – 9:00PM * Voyeur * 755 Fifth Ave. San Diego, CA
INVITE ONLY – 300 zombies will get in!

  FEARnet, the leading cable destination for horror, thriller and suspense content, will team with Capcom® and its upcoming Resident Evil® 6 video game and MPI’s Dark Sky Films to celebrate the horror genre at Comic-Con this year, hosting “Con-of-the Dead,” an evening party saluting both fans and industry insiders, alike. This invitation-only party will fittingly take place Friday, July 13, at San Diego’s gothic-inspired Voyeur nightclub from 6 to 8:30 PM PT.

“Con-of-the-Dead” guests will experience an interactive event complete with playable demo stations featuring Resident Evil 6, a VIP suite decked out by Dark Sky Films, music spun by LA’s DJ Amanda Jones, go-go ghoul dancers, customized refreshments and ‘zombie-fied’ photo booth.

FANGORIA Entertainment, Screamfest Horror Film Festival and horror-centric websites, DreadCentral.com and Shocktillyoudrop.com will co-sponsor the event, with other partnerships soon to be announced.

FEARnet will team up with the 6th Annual Zombie Walk: San Diego, where 300 participating zombies will win admittance to FEARnet’s “Con-of-the-Dead” party taking place that same evening. The lucky undead winners will be able to enter the event after completing the walk in San Diego’s historic Gaslamp District. Details on how to win will be announced soon!

Peter Block, President and General Manager of FEARnet, is enthusiastic about the network’s inclusion in the Comic-Con festivities. “Our main goal at Comic-Con is to build an event that would allow fans to engage with our network firsthand,” Block said. “We are excited for the chance to showcase our network to invited members of the media and entertainment industry, as well as selected participants from San Diego’s famous Zombie Walk.”

The emerging network, now in more than seven million U.S. homes, is expanding into San Diego on June 30, as part of Cox Communications’ continued FEARnet rollout. FEARnet will be viewed on Cox’s Movie Pak at channel position 311 prior to the start of the international convention.

“Cox Communications is an important provider for our rapidly growing popular network,” said Block. “We’re thrilled to be distributed on the third-largest cable company in the U.S. as part of Cox’s Movie Pak and exclusively deliver genre-themed content in time for ‘Comic-Con.’ Residents there have a deep appreciation for the genre and we’re thrilled to be able to bring them over 300 movie titles a year from our robust film library.”

In addition, cast members of FEARnet’s first original TV series, “Holliston,” featuring Adam Green, Joe Lynch, Corri English, Laura Ortiz and GWAR front man Oderus Urungus will also be on hand, taking part in a panel presentation hosted by a surprise celebrity moderator on Thursday, July 12th, from 8:30 to 9:30 PM.

FEARnet will cover the latest genre news at Comic-Con, and continue to produce original content for FEARnet.com, its VOD channel and linear TV network. FEARnet’s coverage of Comic-Con is sponsored by Capcom’s Resident Evil 6, which will be infecting stores on October 2, 2012 and is currently available for pre-order.
