OUR STORY

The Adventures of Kitty Zombie is a collaboration of Kitty Zombie and Zombie Army Productions. 
I came to John Laflamboy, owner of Zombie Army Productions last year with a crazy idea of a full length feature film with Monsters, Kids, Martial Artists, Secret Military projects and a Beautiful leading lady that Kitty Zombie would get in the end! I brought a rough script of a comic I had wanted to do and combined it into the beginning of the film. It was going to be EPIC! After much smiling, nodding, and a few laughs, John, very politely scaled down my epic thoughts of big screen movies, red carpets, and leading ladies. With his grounded advice, we shaped the project we are putting forth for you to help us make.

A short film made for the entire family. Which, in the end, is really what Kitty is all about. 

The Adventures of Kitty Zombie will still have a Mad, Military Scientist, Monsters, Ninjas, and of course the kids! The Beautiful Leading Lady that Kitty gets to walk into the sunset with at the end? Maybe not so much. But that's Ok. Maybe in the next film! ;)

OUR GOALS

Our goal is simple.We want to bring Kitty Zombie to the world in the form of a high quality, short film. 

In order to achieve this, we are looking to raise 15,000.00 for the production of this film.
Shooting in and around the Chicagoland area, which both Kitty Zombie and Zombie Army Productions is based out of will help make this a more achievable goal.
We will use the pledges from our generous fans to help fund location permits, insurance, equipment rental, crew costs, sound, editing, and the myriad costs of producing a film like this.

Our Unlikely Hero of The Adventurers of Kitty Zombie

Kitty donned his no signature Red Goggles and rusted, black armor for the first time on April 26th, 2008, at HAuNTcon in Houston Texas, The bumbling, hulking zombie that is now so well loved had no idea this fun, night with Zombie Army Productions would turn into the ride it has become.Ever since that fateful night, Kitty has gone on to host a number of his own zombie themed events, including : "Plague Day at the Faire" at the Bristol Renaissance Faire,  "Retro Zombie Tiki Terror"  at the beautiful Tiki Terrace, and "Zombies on Ice" at the ice rink in Millennium Park, Chicago. 
You can also see Kitty as a judge and host for Chad Savage's "Zombie Pin Up" contest at Flashback Weekend and at Zombie Army Productions "Zombie Prom".
When not playing with other zombies, Kitty travels for appearances and guest at Horror, Comic, and Sci-fi conventions around the country. 
From the get go, people have asked "When are you going to be in a movie, Kitty?" Well, with any luck, NOW!

Risks and challenges

Well, the most obvious risk is the financial challenge of producing a film like this. Kitty Zombie has a very loyal fan base, and reaching the highest production value is our main goal. The great thing about writing and producing with Zombie Army Productions is that they have been here from the very first time Kitty ever donned the Armor, thru his progressive evolution to the lovable Zombie you all know today.
Beyond that we face the day-to-day challenges of shooting of a film. This includes inclement weather, unexpected illnesses, location issues, and the joys of working with the random behavior and spontaneous personality of Kitty Zombie. We feel confident as a team, with your financial and moral support, we can overcome the eventual obstacles come our way.
