Ravage is a short film produced by students at Vancouver Film School in the Film Production program. This is our final project during our year at VFS.
Many of us often fantasize about zombie apocalypses and the choices they would present. Where would you hide? Which weapon would you use? Could you kill a friend or family member that turned into a zombie? Ravage examines all of these elements while also amplifying the drama with one crucial detail: talking zombies. When your enemy is able to discuss and reason with you, every choice becomes much more difficult and distinguishing the difference between friend and foe becomes more important than ever.
Ollie, the film's hero, battles against time to save his infected son, TJ, and is faced with the ugly truth that killing a family member in a zombie apocalypse isn't as easy as one might think. He struggles to come to terms with his son's infection and fights his instincts while attempting to overcome the situation.
Fuelled by passion, creativity, and energy, the cast and crew of Ravage are working towards making a memorable, professional, and action-packed film enjoyable for all audiences.

Risks and challenges
The biggest challenge with the making of this film is overcoming a student budget to create a professional and eye-catching product. We wish to expand beyond the typical look of a student film to create a visually pleasing piece that exceeds expectations in every aspect. With the low budget provided by our school, we are unable to fully reach our creative potential with this project.
All contributions will give us opportunities that have never been available during our year at school: interesting locations, complex production design, intricate makeup, and mind-blowing sound editing are just a few of the categories that will be enhanced through our Kickstarter project.
All student films have the potential to be something amazing and with your help, we can create a project that is truly spectacular while also funding the futures of young Canadian filmmakers.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
