Zombie is a River Tam focused Firefly vid by afterThought. It was reviewed by shati on September 29, 2006 at the reel. It was one of three vids created for the 'Zombie' challenge over at the sff_vidding LJ community.

Vidder's notes: "This vid is about the pervasive conditioning and control of society by a corrupt government. River realizes her part in it - what she has become and struggles to deal with it."


  • "River the (made) monster; the vid carries a strong theme, but could have benefited from (more?) beta work for timing and streamlining/focus, and possibly from cutting the song's length...My main suggestion is to keep an eye on where clips begin and end, and on the effects of different cuts." ~ feedback at the reel review.
  • "What I see here is someone who has become so fluent in the language of vid that you are effortlessly using effects, transitions, overlays, text, and intercutting to tell exactly the story you want." ~ feedback at the vid announcement.
