"Zombies have invaded your childhood fairytales... are you gonna let them get away with that?"
"Zombie Fairytale Theater is bold enough to ask - why NOT put zombies into fairytales? Might be fun."
Think you know how these stories end? You have NO IDEA. "Zombie Fairytale Theater" is a webseries hopeful that tells your childhood stories with a petrified-twist. From Snow White to Cinderella, Hanzel & Gretel and Little-Boy-Blue, too. Nobody is safe.
We have all 12 episodes written, and are scouting locations and getting deep into pre-production. All we need is YOU. Yes, you, wondering what on earth we could possibly need you for? Support, friendship, possibly a contribution, but most of all, we want you guys to Spread the Word! Friend us on Facebook (under Zombie-Fairytale-Theatre), follow us on Twitter! (@ZFTheater) - we'll follow you back! Find us in the big ol' world-wide-web (zombiefairytaletheater.com ) and email us - we'll say hi! The most important thing we can ask of you is this: if you like us, please TALK about us. (And thank you beforehand.)
Each episode will only be around 3 minutes, so they'll be easy to link up, pass along, waste time on at work, etc. And, fingers crossed, we'll have more in Season 2! - The Invasion Continues....
In Film there is a saying - SHOW, don't tell. So, that's why we're giving you our first episode! This was a literal 'no budget' shoot, but we felt like we needed to give you something to show what we've got in mind for the season; what better way than to go ahead and just give you an episode? (the answer is THERE IS NO WAY, btw). Please, PLEASE - give in to the nasty little urge to retaliate and GIVE US FEEDBACK! You hate us? Tell us! You LOVE us? Tell us. (and, we love you too). What do you want to see, should we get a second season? For the love of all that is right in the world, please, tell us. And, thank you again. :)
Goshen, IN - home of Amish Peanut butter, road apples and corn! But we also have a large artist's community as well as the Mid America Filmmakers (which is technically out of South Bend). So yeah, there's more than corn...not much, but there is. Just have to know the right people :)
The Pilot ep, "Snow White" (which you can watch above after our campaign vid) cost $700; and we ate that (i.e., it came out of pocket). But it's completely worth it because A - we love what we do! We LOVE telling stories. And 2 - it shows you, the audience, what we kind of have in mind for the project - though not completely, got to save some surprises :) That also doesn't include costs such as gas fare, location rental, etc. Once we got an estimate for the entire production, it looks like each will cost around $1000 on average.
Well, why not? The idea came from creator Tara e.'s stint at DragonCon back in 2008. She was there for a film festival and had never really experienced all that a con has to offer. Then she saw the Disney Princess Zombie cosplayers, and got to wondering - what WOULD happen if your fairytales were zombie-fied...she's a little weird...
