After months of pre-production, Drunken Tentacle Productions (an indie film company founded by myself, Jeff Heimbuch, Mike Lombardo, Matthew Blazi, Mike Antonio, and Dave Thomas) shot and wrapped our first film this weekend. Fast Zombies Suck is based on my short story of the same title. It stars Karin Crighton and the aforementioned Matt Blazi. We hope to finish post-production and have it available on DVD by December (probably right around the same time as Ghoul’s DVD release).
I’d like to thank all the fans and readers who showed up early Saturday morning to serve as extras (as well as the folks who just hung out on the sidelines and watched). I know it was a long day, and hot as hell, but you guys were so patient and wonderful and enthusiastic, and I can’t tell you how much all of the crew appreciated your help. Extra special props to the extras that were out in the field with me — we survived attacks by bees and green lady bugs! I’d also like to thank fellow authors J.F. Gonzalez and Geoff Cooper. J.F. was gracious enough to serve as an extra, and Coop served double duty as medical staff and firearm safety expert.
Hundreds of official pics from the set are on the Drunken Tentacle Facebook page. For those of you without Facebook, here are a few of my favorite pics from the weekend.
