In Utah, there is a local short-film contest, called the Demon Chaser, that's associated with our larger Salty Horror Film Festival. This contest is pretty similar to the 48HFF in that we're given a style, and a prop, that we have to use in the film. Luckily for me, it's also a lot longer, so post production can actually happen.
My team was given the style of George Romero, and the props of a tattered curtain and a broken door handle. The props aren't going to be a huge problem, but I'm very concerned about the style because Romero is so well known.
So, besides zombies, what do you think of when you think of sound design in Romero's flicks?
(And, yes, I'll be researching this thoroughly.)
