A Message From Z.O.M.B.I.E.
A Message From Z.O.M.B.I.E. started life as a 20 second zombie attack we were making for a competition. It was the first time we had used prosthetic effects in a film and we had so much fun doing the makeup that we wanted to shoot more with it. After getting the shots we needed for the competition entry, we went back and filmed several wildly different versions with a vague plan of cutting something together later.
While we were making Nipping Out For A Bite, the plan was to cut the footage into "Zombie Attack! Zombie Attack?", a film that used the original competition entry and then showed the same scenario with one of the alternative outcomes. By the time we were ready to cut it, we'd had the idea for a zombie informational video...
A short statement about how zombies have been misrepresented and discriminated against from Jordan and an acronym and logo from Rich and Z.O.M.B.I.E. was formed. It may not be the smartest or best looking film we've ever made but we're pretty sure there isn't another one like it!
