Just a quick post on the wonderful weekend I’ve had out and about.
On Saturday, I was honoured to take part in UN:BOUND VIDEO EDITIONS’ Zombie production at the Phoenix in Leicester. This was a wonderful event featuring fellow horror hacks David Moody (HATER, AUTUMN) and Jasper Bark (WAY OF THE BAREFOOT ZOMBIE). We had a great day filming with loads of people showing up to be zombiefied by the very talented Jenny Jackson. The short film will be launched via the UN:BOUND blog some time in November with loads of giveaways to celebrate. Until then, why not check out this very excellent teaser trailer, featuring a quick snap of yours truly maning up to a horde of zombies!
Big thanks to Adele, Vince, Jenny, Kat and all the zombies who came down to make the event such a great success.
Sunday saw Dave and I travel on to the GRIMM UP NORTH film festival in Manchester, where we led a discussion on zombies and contemporary culture, following the Ford Brothers flick, THE DEAD. We were then interviewed via video by GRIMM’s Steve. I’ll be posting the video and pics as they appear but for now be sure to check out GRIMM’s website for the list of great films and guests this year’s festival boasted. Big thanks to Sim, Steve, Laura and all the GRIMM folks for being so welcoming. And huge thanks, of course to fellow horror hack, Dave Moody, and his family for putting up with me again.
