About 40 people turned into zombies by special makeup effects in the First Commercial Avenue in Okinawa City on December 28. They will appear in Haisai Zombie, a short film that the Okinawa City KOZA Film Office creates.

Yoshihiro Nishimura, who has been working as a special effects make-up artist for several movies, and his four assistants put special make-up on movie extras selected from applicants.

The extras wore ripped clothes with red paint. Nishimura and his assistants made their faces up with grey greasepaint and alcohol paint. They then painted the extras’ nails black.

After having their makeup done, the extras looked at one another and took photographs. Satoko Tamanaha who took part in the shooting with her friend, said, “I am excited. I want to go back home with the makeup.”
