May 24th, 2021 by Marc Comments

With Zack Snyder’s new movie Army of the Dead dominating Netflix charts across the globe, it cannot be denied that, in a year that has had high and very, very lows, the director has been one of the highlights with his new zombie caper and his Justice League both getting fans all worked up.

And, while he did get his Justice League released, with planned sequels, prequels and spinoffs, it’s nice to see Netflix treating him and his new zombie universe with the respect they both deserve.

I’ll happily admit that I didn’t love Army of the Dead as much as I hoped I would but with all the mad easter eggs spread throughout it,  cannot wait to revisit it and jump back into the world at every available opportunity.

And with that, we get to this new four-part youtube series, Snyder School, which will take us behind-the-scenes of the film-makers movies, with episode one focusing on the amazing opening of Army of the Dead… what a place to begin!

Anyway, we’ll post them all here for your viewing pleasure, so feel free to come back and why not bring a friend?

In ‘Snyder School,’ Zack Snyder takes us on a four episode journey into his groundbreaking creative process as a filmmaker. In Episode 1, Zack discusses his approach to creating a title sequence, from storyboard sketches to special effects, in Army of the Dead, as well as 300, Watchmen, and Justice League


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
