IMPORTANT: If you're outside of the USA please add $15 to cover international shipping charges. Thank you.

UPDATE (8/15): Only 23hrs to go! Thank you again to everyone that has backed the film and helped to spread the word! It's been awesome watching people from all over the WORLD become part of this film. Casting has already begun and will wrapped up in the next two weeks.  I'll be posting a new video update very shortly and continue to keep everyone in the loop about the making of this film.

UPDATE (7/23):..........FUNDED!!!! Thank you SO much to everyone who has backed the film so far. You're amazing.  I've set a new goal of $900 (won't show on the side, just this note here) to help cover the costs of renting better lenses and other equipment for the shoot. Again, THANK YOU!!

UPDATE (7/21): INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: Great news! I am now able to offer International Shipping!  Please add $15 for shipping outside of the USA. So if you select the $20 DVD package, make sure to adjust your pledge to $35. The rewards on the side will still say US only because I'm not able to change the wording. Thank you!

UPDATE (7/17): Scroll on down to see a picture of the film t-shirts!!

What if zombies were the norm and humans were the infected monsters that run rampant in the streets, turning our beautiful zombie families into these creatures?

There are hundreds of zombie feature films, short films, TV shows, comic books, video games, and more out there. But where none of them really go is turning everything we know upside down and making the humans the evil things that the plague has created.

As a short film, Zombie comedy, The Humans Are Coming will let us take a peak into the world of the Williams family. Mom and Dad Williams along with their three children, Kyle, Dustin, and Jenny, are having breakfast when an old neighbor shows up that isn't quite himself anymore....he's human.

All funds raised will go straight into the film. If the project is fully funded by the end of the 45 days, The Humans are Coming will be released at midnight on Wednesday, October 31, 2012.

Thank you for your support!

The following is a makeup session to create the zombie for the Kickstarter promo video. A big thank you to Desmond who went through the process! Watch two hours of makeup in two minutes. Zombies for the film will feature more detail and special effects contact lenses. Enjoy!

FAQ

  • I am now able to offer International Shipping! Please add $15 for shipping outside of the USA. So, if you select the $20 DVD reward, make sure to adjust your pledge to $35. The rewards on the side of the page will still say "US shipping only" because I'm not able to change the wording.

    All current international backers, please adjust your pledges so that you will now get the physical rewards

    Last updated:
  • Short films are typically under 10 minutes. Longer films are usually harder to get into film festivals. The Humans Are Coming will have a run time of 8 to 10 minutes.
