Theatre of the Dead nearing funding goals

johnboy 10 January 2012 9

Here in The Eagle’s Nest we maintain that zombies have well and truly jumped the shark.

But not everyone has our keen eye for the zeitgeist and hey, we can always do zombies ironically right?

In any event the efforts to make a zombie movie here in Canberra are coming along and their fundraising page reports that with four days to go they’re just $1,400 short.

If you give enough you too could have your name in the credits of a locally made zombie film.

And what else are you going to do with your life more important than that?

i know where you could get some extras. There are a couple of shelias rampaging around the place. They have shown a passion for biting tall dark types. Last seen either at the Woden Plaza or not wearing a seat belt.

Hi Guys,

I know a lot of you have enjoyed my Lights! Canberra! Action! short films in the past, and as the Writer/Director of “Theatre of the Dead” I’m hoping some of you will be willing to give our film a chance if the opportunity arises to check out the final product.

Yes, we’re doing a zombie film. The genre obviously doesn’t appeal to everyone as some of the posts here would attest. But the genre definitely isn’t dead, no matter what you personally may believe. Zombies still have a large and rabid fanbase, which is what we’re hoping to tap into.

A lot of local filmmakers are pooling together to make this happen, and we’re hoping that this won’t be the last feature to be brought to fruition by this group. So, if you like the zombie genre, and horror films in general, feel free to give us some support 🙂

And before anyone raises the issue, this film is being made entirely with private funding, no government money involved 😉

I assumed it would be a comedy, but the tone here is dark and seemingly non-ironic. I was expecting Shaun of the Dead in Gungahlin.

JB, some of the violence in this might be seen as a little much without a warning; the little girl Zombie being taken out by a piece of wood for example, or the first body eating scene. Some Rioters are pathetic wimps you know.
