The Walking Dead would not be “The Walking Dead” if not for its brilliance in creating special effects, especially with regard to makeup and visual effects. Well, the credit should be essentially passed down to the efforts of the four make-up artists including the head make-up artist, Gregory Nicotero, and the T.W.D. executive producer for their amazing ‘behind-the-screen-make-up’ stunts. While the zombies at the forefront are needed heavy effects in order to bring the epic macabre sense related with The Walking Dead, other zombie faces were made-up with just a touch of “gore”effect in order to maintain the gruesome atmosphere associated with them. It is no secret that out of a large number of people auditioned at the outset of each season, the selected actors are given an extensive training in how to walk and behave like a real zombie or a “walker” would do.
