Taking inspiration from a documentary on the making of Peter Jackson's Bad Taste, Marc Price figured he wouldn't let not owning a steadycam, cranes or a 16mm camera get in the way of shooting his own genre opus and began shooting his micro-budget feature debut on a mini-DV camcorder (that kicked it during the 18 month shoot and was replaced with an older model camcorder)!
Scant resources notwithstanding, Price mobilised a talented can-do cast and crew - Alastair Kirton, who plays the undead male lead of the title and composer Dan Weekes (who does double duty as a zombie extra) key among these - and has produced a strikingly effective, darkly humorous and surprisingly affecting zombie social drama with an end of days vibe.
Filmmaker Marc Price will be joined by RRR's Richard Watts for a live Q&A via phone following the February 18 screening.
