Watch: Crazy POV Rooftop Zombie Parkour Short Film 'Dying Light'

January 9, 2015

Dying Light Zombie Short Film

Holy crap, zombies everywhere! Another fun short film to wrap up the week, this one a point-of-view (POV) film based on the upcoming zombie video game Dying Light. Directed by Scott Bass, the short follows one parkour runner as he escapes a zombie attack on rooftops (they filmed in Cambridge, England). The game is also first person, so that experience extends to this short in order to introduce gamers to a ravaged world where they'll fight off "hordes of mindless, flesh-hungry enemies". It's another solid example of how much can be done with just a camera and a good idea, since filmmaking technology is readily available. Fun times.

Thanks to SlashFilm for the tip on this kick ass film. Description from YouTube: "Inspired by the highly-anticipated action survival game, Dying Light, this Real-Life Parkour video puts you in the POV of a runner and takes you on a frantic escape from zombies through the rooftops of Cambridge, UK. We had a lot of fun making this and cant wait to play the game when it comes out at the end of the month!" Dying Light, the short film, is directed by Scott Bass, produced by Ampisound. The main runner is played by Toby Segar. For more on the game, visit its website. For more on the film, head to YouTube. Find more Short Films here.
