We watched Lost In Zombie land and compared it to our thriller and music video projects.
We chose 3 main similarities:
They had a tight and importance to keep in time, when they shot their film, so did we, as we were allowed 2 weeks to do ours.
Another one was we both used Final Cut to edit our films. And we also layered clips to create more interesting and complecated edited shots.
We also used make-up and had to create it and decide on how it will look and which is the best way to do it. They had the same problems and though they had a bigger budget they had to research and find out what works best, just like us.
