New Behind the Scenes Video

This is the behind the scenes video for The Book of Zombie that I made for the Red, White and Dead Zombie walk in Seattle.  It premiered after the world record setting zombie walk to thousands of zombie fans.  Watch the whole video below and see lead actor, Brian Ibsen along with Scott Kragelund, Marcel Banks and Erik Van Sant talk about making the movie.  Of course I’ve also added some scenes from the film along with plenty of exclusive behind the scenes footage.

4,920 Zombies came out with 4,233 verified which makes Seattle once again the world record holder for largest zombie walk.  Stop by my photoblog in the coming days to see my pictures of the event.

World Premiere

Last Friday night was the world premiere of The Book of Zombie at Seattle’s True Independent Film Festival – STIFF.  I couldn’t believe the massive crowd that showed up for the show.  I wasn’t even sure that I would be able to get the movie that I worked for three years on.  It turns out the movie was oversold.  The theater was filled to over capacity with some people sitting on the ground and well over forty people were turned away.  The movie looked and sounded great.  And it was loud.  The audience was really into it, laughing in all the right places and even some unexpected ones.  We were screened with two short films – The Familiar and Blue Moon Day.  Both were also excellent.  Afterwords we participated in a Q & A with the other filmmakers.  Representing The Book of Zombie was myself, Adam Gehrke, Paul Cranefield, Marcel Banks, Erik Van Sant, Adrienne MacIain, Andrew Loviska and Larissa Peters.  We’re going to keep sending the movie around the festival circuit while we work on the DVD release.  We have gone on to win the festival's Audience Award.

Here’s the crowd that stayed for the Q&A following the movie:

Moaning to the finish line

The Book is almost closed on The Book of Zombie. The final edit has been locked for a few months now. Almost all of the visual shots have been turned in (I still have one on my plate). Our sound designers are working overtime on making the movie sound great. The score is about half done right now. I've heard it and it sounds really amazing. Adam says that the hardest parts are still ahead of him though. There's a section late in the film where there's going to be about ten minutes of solid music. I can't wait to hear it. As you know, the opening credits are finished. The end credits are currently being assembled. We've started submitting the film to festivals, so stay tuned to find out where you can catch the world premiere. You can also keep up on news by becoming a fan on Facebook.
