A Question of Style

I’m doing a mockumentary about surviving the zombie apocalypse for my thesis (that’s right, be jealous). Here’s the question I pose to you, O’ Wise and Learned Interwebs:

Would it be better to do this in a more traditional documentary fashion (with a narrator that is removed from the action, dispensing facts and advice in a linear way; think, How It’s Made)

Or as personal narrative of an expert (performing the acts in the field in the order of importance; think, Man vs Wild or Survivorman)

Or as something of a combination of the two (á la Top Gear)

Thoughts? Ideas? Volunteers to help?

  1. I’m thinking that a Marty stoeffer style narrative would be hilarious. An upbeat and detached narrator describing horrific acts of violence. A British accent like hitch-hikers guide would be classic.
