A new AMC The Walking Dead “Dispatches From the Set” has been posted over on AMCtc.com The Walking Dead’s production designer Greg Melton explains how to devastate a stretch of Georgia highway, shares what goes into building a barn and explains what all that teaches him about surviving the apocalypse.

You can read the report below or over on AMC here

Q: In Season 1, you created a devastated downtown Atlanta. For Season 2, you got a stretch of devastated highway. How did they compare?

A: They were pretty similar, actually as far as getting them organized, and doing your homework and getting the blocking and positioning of things that need to happen as the scene unfolds. We got really great cooperation down here from the Georgia Department of Transportation to shut down a big four-lane highway, which was the biggest thing — we needed something major. Once we had that, it was just a matter of trying to figure out how many cars would tell the story. I think at one point, on our biggest day, we put almost 200 vehicles into that set, which was over a quarter of a mile long.

Q: And then you have to dress each of the vehicles…

A: Exactly. It’s all people who are fleeing, so they’re filled with bags and lots of stuff. And then it’s been sitting there for weeks, so we have to come through and do a real heavy aging pass on everything. And then we trashed the highway. Literally. We were dumping bags and bags of trash and things. Everywhere you could see. We created two or three wrecks with burnt grass in the median. I love doing sets like that because you just stand out there and you start putting things around. There are only so many floor plans you can do. And then you gotta stand there in that space and just make it happen.
