Zombie Surfing…that’s the tentative title of our next short film.
Quick sidenote: We shot this one week before Zombieland…and while I don’t think we really broached their territory…glad I saw it after the bulk of the film was shot.
We were trying to take a little bit of a different tactic this time out. Instead of coming up with the idea and shooting it in 48 hours I thought it would be good to have a film festival goal in mind.
Long story short…not so much. Being overly ambitious in scope we kept adding to what was originally a rather staid and unoriginal script and have made it into something a little more twisted, disgusting and fun.
As a result, we missed the deadline for the zombie film festival and are actually going to write two more ‘scenes’ for this short sketch type film that while extremely embarassing for almost all involved should throw out some solid laughs. The sad thing is for the amount of roles we had we simply could not get actors to take a day out of their lives and show up on set so we simply played the roles ourselves. Brian Dwyer has the largest character running through the film but all of us play at the minimum 2 roles and some of us are in about 4-5 small roles, but that includes being zombie fodder!
Barring that, we will move onto the next short film. Will update once we do the pick-up shots, effects and added scenes!
