This is the thread to post a photo of your dead self for possible use in the short Shriek movie, war sequence.

To post a photo, just copy-and-paste this:

\ image{Text description}

but remove the space between the \ and the word "image".

Also, you don't need to enter anything in the text description part. Just leave it as is.

Finally, make sure to include your email so we can contact you.

As for what we're looking for: we're looking for headshots of people pretending to be dead. So, generally, that would mean eyes shut and expression slack. If your shirt is showing in the shot, it should be nondescript without any logo or anything showing. Dark solids are best. Also, these shots tend to look best if you're lying down and someone is taking the photo from above.

We'll take dead shots for the next week. Who knows? You might end up dead in a war in Ambergris.

You'll get a free copy of the movie on DVD and some other freebies if your shot makes the movie. (This is a low-budget production.) I'll probably post all the headshots on my blog, regardless of who makes the movie, at the end of this experiment.

Try to make sure the jpegs you post here aren't too big--either in file size or height and width, or it'll be hard to see them.

You will be emailing the original high-quality digital photo (at least we hope it's high-quality) to the director of the movie if your dead face is chosen...

I'm sorry. For some reason I cannot figure out how to post a photo here, so a link will have to do. I think it might be the bottle to the head....:-)

I always pictured myself going out like this anyway (not suicide, mind you, probably would be done by one of my loathsome enemies.)

Muerto. (Pops a new window.)

Thanks for the opportunity to play dead in your world. A couple of alternate headshots can be found here: http://lossrockhart.livejournal.com/219475.html

Don't know how to post an image, so here's a link...

Just something I had from 2001, but hopefully is useful. And if you're looking for any timelapse stock footage, have some traffic and clouds on my blog.
