I'm always one for adventurous super 8 film shoots, but this had the makings of being one to remember.
Jen Gennutt has posted this request. I highly encourage anyone with an interest to take part.
This years film? You guessed it! Zombies!
But not just any zombies. No, that would be too easy.
The basics are these:
We're shooting it like it's a family on vacation. Car breaks down in a deserted town. Family laughs about it until zombies show up and swarm the car. Just for added effect, we're shooting it like it was shot in the 1950/60s and out in farming country.
So we need a bunch of 1950s farmers/zombies.
I'm going to do my best to provide some costumes and accessories along with some make-up, but if you have some period appropriate clothes you don't mind zombifying, that would be awesome.
One other thing and this is the tricky part - We're set to shoot in Claybank, which is located just outside Avonlea Sk.
It's going to be a blast and I know everyone is going to have fun. If you're willing to make the trip and help me out, you'll have my undying gratitude and you'll have a part in a (short and totally non-profit) film you can brag to all your friends about.
*One more thing guys - Claybank is going to cost me $5 a head when we go to shoot. I'm not going to tell everyone to bring $5 because this is something I knew was going to cost money and I don't care but if you'd like to contribute, that would be fantastic."
I can't wait to see this film. Fingers crossed the zombies don't eat it at the lab. We always enjoy a good zombie film. Last year showcased Zombie Milk Run (which unfortunately didn't fit the end of the tale on the 50 feet of film). There was also a gem from 2004 - a Shawn Fulton epic, which involved zombies, and a watermelon eating contest.
