About

How I survived the apocalypse

Pilot movie Promo Reel for a Comedy Drama based in New Zealand

Help us bring to life a part of kiwiana! The 'can do' attitude of a bunch of average kiwi blokes and their partners 'going bush' to avoid the spread of a deadly viral plague.

Watch as the virus spreads across the world, killing almost everyone in its path!

Follow our hapless heroes as they collect all the bits and bobs to make life in the bush possible, and then realise they forgot the toilet paper! But worse than that they have no idea how to make a drop toilet so need to 'borrow' a portable loo.

The script is in draft form and a separate Kickstarter will be initiated to fund the production of the movie unless a studio takes it up. The movie would be a pilot for a New Zealand made series highlighting the best of what it is to be a Kiwi!

Here's a glimpse of the start of the movie;

FADE IN: INTRODUCTION EXT. BUSH ESTABLISHING Michael is standing in front of a section of bush with keep out and various warning signs and barbed wire. He is holding a dog-eared copy of the book, “The Survivalists Guidebook”

MICHAEL (TO CAMERA) Hi, I’m Michael, and I know it’s a bit of a cliché, but this is my story. We couldn’t afford a flash narrator so I’m afraid you’re stuck with me. I guess some introduction would be kinda useful at this point. Firstly, and it’s important you understand, I’m no survivalist! I could probably be described as a handy man and a bit paranoid but I’m not over the top and around the bend like those people you see on shows like “doomsday preppers” or the like. I have always thought that there might be a disaster, like a plague or something, and so I bought, (Holds book up to camera) “The Survivalists guidebook,” just in case and I always kept an eye on the news.

So let’s cast the way-back machine to early November 2018.

Risks and challenges

I have written, and published, several short stories and a science fiction novel. I am currently working on the screen play and hope to have this completed in 1st draft form shortly. I have an outline of a show reel for the pilot ready to go!
