About Me: I am an avid fan of horror and zombie movies, its been a dream to be able to do a zombie movie which stands out from the rest, with the possibility of it being set in stone as something to be remembered long before I am gone. My whole life I have been told that i can't achieve anything, this is the only shot I have to prove myself,to me,to the doubters and to everyone.I am creative by nature(hence profile picture) but this is me underneath all that and I hope people like what I have to offer. My film crew is in South Africa about to do a zombie make-up session with a zulu warrior and I'm also getting Artwork which will appear during this fundraiser which hopefully you will like.
In 1879, A outpost of British soldiers find themselves condemned by a vengeful witch-doctor to the Spirit Realm.Haunted,tormented,trapped,starving and alone, they are left with no other choice but to face the horrors of the undead,in the underworld of Africa, in a battle against the dead that both lurk in the dark and in their heads.To stay alive they take desperate measures to save themselves,resorting in unthinkable means for survival.
My opinion: The zombie genre is Bland now to say the least, its fading out.What I am trying to do is unlike any Resident evil films and others alike, to do something so completely different that it will refresh the genre. I'm taking it back to zombies coming out of the ground like they used to, scary moments of horror with moments of desperation and hopelessness.I dont know about you guys, but I never see that in zombie movies anymore, where's the tension?,how come the heroes in zombie films turn superhuman all of a sudden? This story has none of those things that I think are wrong.
Based on when Britain set out to Colonize Africa, showing the true attitudes of colonization but also adding a more human feel of sympathy and empathy as the film goes on and when other events unfold, breaking the mold to the zombie genre. It doesn't involve the same virus and chemical spill plot, it shows the struggle of a few soldiers fighting in a battle with only the weapons they have to save themselves but also being haunted in their sleep by the fallen souls.

-What i want in this movie: I'm hoping to have zombies brand new to the zombie genre, one with a 4ft sword made of bone(RE5 executioner style),a zombie wielding sickles as it raises from the ground and last but not least Like the Walking Dead, where they have an instinct e.g smelling. However mine will be that they know when not to approach their prey.
-My script consists of Dialogue that is 100% unique and different than any other.I have studied into great lengths to do this script, from researching into weaponry,battles and technology, to the accurate detail of phrases,quotes and words used in that time-period.
The Zulu people have always interested me, back when Britain was fighting them they were very frightening to witness before they charged the enemy,most of the opposition would run at the simplest glance of them. I want to bring that to the screen whilst introducing the zombie genre into it, my way but creatively doing it with respect to their tradition but making the zombie genre even more frightening, which to be honest in my opinion > (is needed)
-Funding is needed for:Set design, Background Props,weapons,uniforms, transport,make-up and SFX
