 I think I've had one or two dreams about shredding away from zombies before, never thought I would see someone make a short movie out of the concept though. Was totaly shocked at the budget, thought it would be WAY higher. Awesome video!

 The largest exspense was probably his bike.

 Yeah, the behind the scenes was very good, you don't really realize the effort that goes into cinema versus just riding your bike.

 @Ryanppv8: Poor fuel economy though, he used quarter of a tank just driving up a hill.

 @upchuckyeager: yuck. The other guy thought the element got bad mileage..

 Great video, especially considering the budget, if you had more access to extras for the biking section it would have been great to see them on the outsides of corners or inside a gap reaching up to the rider or eating something. Or maybe reaching up to him as he rips across a log ride. Best thing ever would have been a scrub to the face.

 That's why Aaron was so good. He did cool stuff without the hackneyed cliches of so many videos now being put out. This one and "Monday" are still among the best that have graced Pinkbike

 *Is so good. His work with Nic Genovese as Mind Spark Cinema is amazing.

 I would have loved to be an extra for free, or maybe just do it for lunch. People should post and ask who they could get for free. Hell baby powder and ketchup is all you need to look dead. lol

 Thats funny...part of my preps aside from all my firearms and everything else are my Ripley (for me) and my Reign (for the Mrs).

 A 29er with a more aggressive geometry was my first choice for a zombie outbreak , considering that majority of the riding will probably on fire roads with some technical trails sprinkled in.

 @Zuman: madmax comuter bike complete with razor wheel attachment and panier bags full of genades and amo. Light blinder helmet mount feature and quick release zombie lance. Oh ,and elbow pads.

 From now on I have to remember the #1 rule- "when zombies are chasing you, get out of your vehicle, and go for a bicycle ride in the woods" systems check; and check.

 Should have been the original version of She's not there. Or something else by The Zombies.

 I have wanted to make this video for the longest time. Only with downhill bikes, obviously. So riders can whip zombie's heads off.
