Our Zombie Overpopulation video has won a gold prize at the EVCOM Clarion Awards, which recognise ‘good purpose’ communications by charities, companies and public sector organisations. Released just over a year ago, the video, which takes a sideways look at the impacts of population growth, has been viewed almost 9,000 times on YouTube.
The video was created to appeal to young people and features zombies blundering around destroying their environment in a comic, mock-documentary style. It is narrated by Anthony Head, star of the cult TV programme Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and mixes live action, remarkable special effects and hard information about human population growth.
Zombie Overpopulation concludes with a simple message: “Don’t be a zombie. Use your brain. we all have a choice about how many babies to have and how much we consume.”
