Learn How to be a Zombie - Haunted House Training for Actors Wanting to Be Scary
How to Be a Zombie Actor in Zombie Paintball
Halloween is nearing once again, and it's time for ghouls, spooks, and scary costume parties! One fun way to spend the Halloween season is by playing zombie paintball! But what if you are the one being shot? Being a zombie actor for zombie paintball takes some work to get used to, but this article will give you all the advice you need to become an expert zombie.
Start off learning your way in orientation.You should learn the ins and outs of your zombie paintball course. Make sure you learn exactly where to clock in, where belongings are to be stored, where armor is located, and where the zombies are to be positioned once zombie paintball begins.
Armor up.Armor should be provided, including a helmet and chest/rib protection.
Go to your assigned station quickly and quietly.You need to make sure you aren't seen by the "humans", so be discreet.
Await the arrival of the humans.This will probably involve a lot of standing around, so just have patience.
Go down with headshots.You want the humans to feel the satisfaction of shooting and killing a zombie, so crumple to the ground once they get a headshot in.
- With larger batches of humans, you are more likely to be shot in the head faster. You don't want the humans to be shooting into a field of (re)killed zombies, so wait a bit longer before you "die".
Wait for the humans to leave, and retreat to your post.
Repeat this process until zombie paintball is over.The course may last longer than the official time slate, depending on how fast the humans clear it, but there will be a signal at the end for you to pack up and go home.
Clean and turn in your armor before you clock out.
- Wear lots of extra armor. The standard armor provided will offer minimum protection, so bring some of your own. You can use spare sports equipment, cardboard, thick gloves, or cut up yoga mats.
- Wear bright clothes. You want to make sure you are seen by the humans.
- Wear your armor under your clothes. This is so that the humans don't know where to shoot. Essentially, don't guilt-trip them into shooting where they know you are armored; they must think of you as a zombie, not an actor.
- Make it fun for the humans. Try doing different things, like posing or doing a short dance.
- Zombie paintball is typically held at night, to give the humans the dire sense of dread that comes with a zombie outbreak.
- Wear multiple layers of clothes to cushion the paintballs.
- Bring wipes to clean the visor of your helmet.
- Bring water/snacks to consume throughout your shift. Make sure they are hidden from sight.
- Getting shot hurts, but try not to cry out in pain. This will break the immersion.
- You will have a break between rounds to take a breather and wait for the next batch of humans.
- Wait for the round to end before taking a short bathroom break.
- Immediately stop what you are doing if you see an unprotected customer wandering in the shooting station. Warn them that they are in an active firing range, and guide them out.
- Never take off your helmet while zombie paintball is still active. You could be shot in the face.
- If you absolutely must take off your helmet, do so with utmost caution. Turn away from and keep your back to the line of fire. Duck your head and guard your eyes with a forearm. It'll smart if you get beaned in the dome, but it's better than potentially losing an eye.
- Alert your manager ASAP if there is something wrong with your armor.
- Do not drink/smoke on the job.
- Try your best not to talk while zombie paintball is active.
- Do not leave your station while zombie paintball is active.
- Do not take customers into the shooting station when you are not currently working. Other zombies may still be working, and you can get the customer shot.
- Do not use cell phones while on the job. Not only can they be damaged, but you will be reprimanded if you are caught.
- Do not leave trash in the paintball course.
- Do not apply for this job if you have heart problems, seizures, epilepsy or any epileptic symptoms. Bright, flashing lights will shine on you, and may trigger these conditions.
- Do not look directly into the glare of flashlights. This may impair your vision.
