About this project
PLEASE NOTE: THIS DVD IS A LIMITED INDEPENDENT RELEASE (UNLESS IT GETS PICK UP AT A FILM FESTIVAL) - ONLY A SMALL AMOUNT OF DVDS WILL BE PRESSED!!!
2 of the 3 Designs we are using for the perks are these!
Filmmakers and (Childhood friends) Cris Macht and Ian Vacek released their 2nd documentary last year – THE FORCE WITHIN US (about Star Wars fans) and have since formed their own production company “Lust For Life LTD”. As big fans of The Walking Dead and experience with documentaries based around the fans, it only made sense that their next project focused on the fans of the hottest TV show….THE WALKING DEAD. We believe that any franchise is only as big and successful as their fan base, nothing will be successful without the support of their fans! – and we feel that this story should be told and explored! This documentary is made by fans for the fans! Not only will this be a high quality production, it will also be a documentary that is packed with excitement, emotion, and passion…just like in their previous projects!
THIS PROJECT CAN NOT BE COMPLETED WITHOUT YOUR HELP AND SUPPORT!!!!
We have several interviews lined up with The Walking Dead Authors, Writers, Actors, Podcast Hosts, Fans, and everything in between. We will be filming across the United States (including the filming locations in Atlanta, and The Walker Stalker Convention in Both Chicago and Atlanta)
Both of the Documentaries that Cris Macht has released have been critically acclaimed and highly praised by both Critics and Fans, he has no reason to change that with this one…If anything, this will be better than the last! Ian Vacek has been in the production business for 16 years. You can see their IMDB resumes here:

Film Description and Synopsis
With The Walking Dead franchise at the peak of it’s popularity, Documentarians Cris Macht and Ian Vacek explore and examine why humanity is obsessed with the “zombie apocalypse”. Cris and Ian interview fans that have been there since the comic book debuted in 2003 to the living rooms of the casual fan of the TV show across America, as well as everything in between including Cosplayers, Collectors, A fan that built his own Daryl Dixon Motorcycle, A pilgrimage to the filming locations in Georgia, The Convention Circuit (including Walker Stalker Con), Cast and Crew members, and more! The film also explores that fans of the show are more than just crazy zombie lovers, it examines that community and friendships are formed over their love for the series as well as that fans have hope that humanity will always prevail in the worst case situations.
Where will your pledge money go?
Making a great high quality documentary always comes with a price, anything you pledge to the campaign will go straight into the film. We are not asking for nearly what it will cost, but we want to put an attainable goal to ensure we get at least partial funding so we don't have to take out any loans, or charge up credit cards to make a film that we know most likely will not make either of us rich. The money we raise through this campaign will go to such things as:
• Lights, Sound, Video expenses and equipment
• Transportation/Lodging (we are filming in California, Georgia, and other parts of the US) • Food (a crew working for free needs to be kept full!)
• Entry fees into Cons/Film Festivals – this can be very costly!
• The Kickstarter perks such as Shirts, Poster, Patches
• Marketing and Promotions – Cris Macht has a degree in marketing and will be in charge of getting the word out!
• Manufacturing the DVD
• Editing (post production Costs)
- Any Kickstarter commission fees

Risks and challenges
To be honest...this is not our 1st rodeo. We have done this before, have IMDB.com credits, and a reputation to protect.
In our past experience, time has been a factor and a challenge (getting the film out in time for the announced release date)- however, we are making films for a living and this project is our priority.
The DVD will be Region 0, meaning it will be playable on any DVD player or computer in any country.
We do have lawyers that guide us through this process
This documentary is not affiliated or authorized by AMC in any way
