Adam Listening to the Desert

Yesterday, somewhere south of Phoenix, sound engineer Adam Murray recorded the subtle sounds of desert for Vampires vs Zombies. It was a hot, dry, crackly day and the incessant overhead plane volleys called for measured patience. I suffered many scratches as I ran, rubbed branched together, brushed against the bristled shrubbery, slithered, and otherwise performed noises for Adam’s listening machines. Luckily we encountered neither scorpions nor jumping cacti – dear desert, you are a prickly beast!

Zombies in the House

This week our skilled make-up artists have been making zombies in the gallery, and unleashing them on the unsuspecting public. Strangely every time we finish a zombie, it disappears, causing concern among the museum staff. So far, all staff are breathing and accounted for.
