Watch How The Steampunk Zombie Army From Sucker Punch Is Made.
This is an animated short by Ben Hibbon entitled “The Trenches” for Sucker Punch.
In Sucker Punch, the girls face off against an army of mechanized WWI soldiers. Through the use of clockwork and steam technology, human soldiers who die in battle are reanimated and sent back to the front lines. Although seemingly indistinguishable and soulless, the zombie army is not just made of gears and steam, but also of human flesh, bone, and memory. In “The Trenches” there is a tragic tale behind each lifeless mask.
