When the Lights Go Out (Behind the Scenes)

We filmed for 9 hours yesterday and got the first episode of “When the Lights Go Out” filmed!  It was a super long day and it was super cold but it was AMAZING.  My cast and crew are simply the best!  Here’s a few pics of behind the scenes and an unedited video.

What are we studying so intently???  You'll have to watch to find out... ;)

Dance of the Dead

Okay, I have to admit some bias with this review. Dance of the Dead (Ghost House Underground)was filmed in Atlanta when I lived there and I worked with a couple of people that are in it (back in my long ago acting days). Regardless, it is hands down one of my favorite zombiedies of all time.

The plot is simple. A high school prom goes horribly wrong when the dead start rising due to toxic waste from the nearby nuclear power plant. The end result is funny and gory, one of my favorite combinations. The central cast of characters is a group of teens who for various reason are either not going to prom or just haven’t arrived yet. They band together when the zombies start attacking and are pretty much the breakfast club of zombie fighters.

Now everything you see here came from Craigslist, you can get anything there.

You’ve got the cheerleader, the sci-fi group, the wild redneck rebel, the vice-president of the class, a group of rockers and the pizza delivery guy. Add in a half-crazed coach who’s ex-military and you’ve got a recipe for laughter. Together they manage to make their way to the school in hopes of saving their classmates – but do they make it in time????

Hilarious highlights include:

Said half-crazed ex-military coach gets explosives off of Craigslist just in case of emergencies.
Said rockers aren’t even aware of the zombie attacks for the first quarter of the film or more because they’re so stoned.
These zombies LOVE music. It’s the only thing that stops them dead in their tracks.

Now do yourself a favor and go watch “Dance of the Dead”!
