Quick Note: We are smack in the middle of tornado season where I live and the audio quality of this episode suffers a little bit, due to weather, power, and wind fluctuation. It’s not terrible, but it does strain a bit. We’ll be back to normal as soon as the house lands and I dig the witch out from under it.
Today, I spoke with Kyle Hester for the Zombie with a Shotgun feature film and his role in the project. Kyle and I often get off on a tangent about acting, the business, and the brand of a filmmaker, so you’ll have to excuse that, but we did talk about the Zombie with a Shotgun project and I have to say I’m extremely excited to see this thing come to “life” (see what I did there?).
Zombie with a Shotgun is going to be that zombie film where all the rules we know about zombie films go right out the window.
In this Zombie film, the zombie will be the hero and it will have others (zombies) to help out the war against the humans. The story follows Aaron who isn’t sure if he is infected with the zombie virus or some other infection. He takes this journey with his girlfriend Rachel and his shotgun where they both find out the deep secrets among the zombie virus and their love life.
This project will have what Zombie and Horror fans been waiting for…
You can check out the series that spawned it all on Vimeo (https://vimeo.com/zombiewithashotgun) and catch up for the exciting feature film based off that story.
The support for this film has been massive so far, with fans contributing over $5,000 in the first few hours of the kickstarter (found here) and the momentum should seriously be kept up and doubled because this project looks like it’s going to be one to really kick ass.
I’ll be looking to interview Hilton Ruiz, the creator of Zombie with a Shotgun soon and to attach it to this awesome post. Follow along as they build the feature up and get the support they need. The perks are awesome, including one of the best perks I’ve seen: Be a Zombie in the film.
That’s taking Kickstarter to a whole new level and I’m excited when I see projects do that.
