About this project

This short zombie-comedy (or zomedy) is the culmination of my four years' worth of experience studying filmmaking at New York University and will serve as my Advanced Production senior thesis.

So far we have raised about half of our projected budget of $9,000, and thanks to Kickstarter, we are aiming to raise funds for the remaining departments--namely zombie-makeup and special effects.

Money raised toward this $800 goal will go towards our makeup department:

- blood/scab
- liquid latex
- brushes/pencils
- hairdryers
- makeup products (bases, oils, powders, eyeliner, removal, etc.)
- hydraulic pump & tubes for blood splatter effects
- tarps/smocks
- hair products (gel, combs, etc.)

This is a project we're very passionate about and we would love to have your support! And even if you are not in a position to help, you may know somebody who does! Thank you so much!
