A quick update to the post below about ABC News contributing the the global commons of reusable content and to the pile of decaying corpses at ABC Pool‘s The Dead Walk! group.

ABC has officially released its first professional news footage shot for the project. All three segments released by the ABC are available under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial 3.0 Unported licence. You can get them from the ABC News profile on Pool.

The sad news coming out of the project, however, is that Australian horror author Robert Hood has been eaten by a pack of zombies while recording the trailer BrokenSea Audio Production’s upcoming audio drama Zombie Cheerleaders 2: Pom-Poms of Death. See Gary Kemble’s news post for the full story.

Although everyone loves archives footage, it is fantastic to see the ABC compliment their recent releases in that area with contemporary broadcast footage.
