When you shoot the sequel have the actuator pulled to the rear when walking around with the drum.

Good job. I have made a few short shooting videos and know how much goes into making a 5 minute film.

We do know what would have happened to that herd of goats standing behind and slightly above the zombie, right? Know your target and what's behind it.

When you shoot the sequel have the actuator pulled to the rear when walking around with the drum.

I always see that in the movies, someone with a drum in the Thompson walking around with the actuator forward.

The only way that can be is if the drum is empty.
