About the Film:
This film was original suppose to be a stage production of "Aliens The Musical" for my senior project at SDSU. Funny how hard it actually is to get an alien costume in Hollywood. You would think they are just on every corner. The film evolved from Aliens to Zombies through my passion for the undead. In addition, it became a Beatles song because of my high on their music at the time.
Im excited to be completed with this movie, though there are still plenty of flaws. It was a great film to work on and so much of a great experience to be apart of from beginning to end.
We decided to go with the schools Panasonic HMC 150 which surprised the heck out of me. The camera is right on with the HVX but cheaper and easier to use in my opinion. We also mounted a Red Rock Micro system with Zeiss lenses, which became a wonderful learning curve. Most of us are FILM enthusiasts so working with digital, though experienced, we were a bit unsure. I think we did a fine job with what we had to work with. Im really satisfied with the end product. I think all the elements together make it a fun film.
Dane, my DP, did awesome. He is such a talented guy doing whatever I wanted with no hesitation. We shot the majority of the film on a moving dolly. That was a challenge. You can see how difficult it is to keep up with actors while maintaining focus and looking out for shadows and obstacles. Seriously, the hardest shoot I've ever worked on. He along with the rest of the crew did phenomenal work. Especially those set designers and make up girls. Those girls busted their butts on time constraints and budgets. They did great.
Whitney and Anthony are two of the most talented actors to come out of San Diego. Whitney has worked on a lot of student films and never manages to dissapoint. Her work in musicals especially have impressed many people across the country. Anthony is one of the best Operatic singers I have ever heard. For him this was a challenge performing while working on other projects and being sick. Im so proud of them both and wish the best in their careers. Anything I can do to help just hollar.
As far the rest of the Zombie's. Holy crap, these guys are fantastic. Ever heard the term hurry up and wait. Well just ask these guys. Not only did they hang in there for all three days of shooting, they also endured the coldest cherry pie filling anyone has had to wear on their bodies. I hate that stuff and never want another cherry pie. They did great, seriously. It is hard to be a Zombie and with all student films, its hard to get actors, period. You all did fantastic and I think its really fun to watch each of you. You all have really funny individual stories, though Rachel is probably the champion of the shoot. I think she wore 5 gallons of cherry pie filling by the end.
So, a year later and the book is closing on the making of this film. From here on hopefully we make it to a festival or viewing, but if not its okay. I just love the experience of making my own Zombie Musical. How many people can actually say that!
