How to Print a Document (with Zombies)
I have been doing some work for the College of DuPage Library, and one of the ideas they had was a series of videos about different parts of the library. This project started out as a simple "How to print" instructional video, until the librarian I was working with on the project said "I wish we could do something crazy, like zombies in the library or something." One thing led to another, and now my college's library has an animated short about zombies on its website. Enjoy!

I've written up a "making of" blog post with the full story and a few other behind-the-scenes details.

I love this so much, and am insanely jealous, and want you to come work magic like this at my library. Please?

I really liked this! The narration style was spot on too.

I think it works great in this context for people to remember how to do this. I'm glad the librarians went with it.

The counter girl so totally needs to waste one of the zombies though. Can't have a zombie flick where no zombies are harmed.

Either that or she should direct them to the library's brains collection.

Ah yes. The "applied neuroanatomy library" wink wink. Right this way.

Nice work! Cute and to the point.

See? Only zombies wear ties.

This is so excellent.

That was really cool. Must be nice to work somewhere with enough sense of humor to let you do something like this.

Thanks, everybody! I'm glad so many people enjoyed this. Look forward to more oddball library videos in the future.

Here's a direct link to the relevant entry, for when the front page of the blog moves on while the entry remains in place.

Shambling in circles & groaning horribly.
