About

THE STORY

Aftermath (A Zombie Apocalypse Choose Your Own Adventure) is a unique take on the very popular zombie genre, where you, the audience, get to make key decisions about the story as it unfolds.

At the end of each episode, the audience will go to a website and vote on a major decision that the characters need to make. The winning choice will be filmed for the next episode.

THE SURVIVORS

The Aftermath (A Zombie Apocalypse Choose Your Own Adventure) webseries follows a group of six survivors in a world overrun by zombies.

Joseph Neidert as Earl, Savannah Neidert as Jessie, Caroline McClellan as Susan, Stephanie Glogowski as Cody, Ben Korpiel as John, and Nevaeh Vindigni-Kretchmer as Rachel.
Joseph Neidert as Earl, Savannah Neidert as Jessie, Caroline McClellan as Susan, Stephanie Glogowski as Cody, Ben Korpiel as John, and Nevaeh Vindigni-Kretchmer as Rachel.

Earl has been a survivalist/prepper ever since he left the military when his wife died. The zombie apocalypse validates him and how he raised Jessie.

Jessie is an only child who was taught to shoot guns and prepare for the end of the world as soon as she could walk and talk.

John was the popular kid in school and captain of the football team. On the day of the outbreak he picked up Rachel from school because Dad was working and Mom was running late from an appointment. Mom and Dad never made it home. Keeping Rachel safe is his number one priority.

Rachel is naïve and younger than her actual 13 years. She’s still traumatized by the loss of her parents and hasn’t been hardened to this world yet.

Susan has lost everything she ever loved – husband and three kids all killed in the early days of the apocalypse. She goes through each day expecting the worst. She has become attached to John and Rachel. They fill the void of her lost family.

Cody is a former business school student working her way through school as a stripper. She's the cliched stripper with a heart of gold. She keeps her stripper shoes as a way to hold onto the way it was before.

OUR GOAL

We want to produce the highest quality webseries we can. We are all fans of the zombie genre, so we want to make the kind of show that we would want to watch. We also want to make you, the audience, an integral part of the story as you make important decisions for our survivors.

WHAT WE'LL DO WITH THE MONEY

With the Kickstarter funded, we'll be able to hire professional special effects people to give you the blood and gore that we all come to expect from a zombie show. The actors and crew will be compensated for their hard work. And we'll be able to shoot in interesting and visually stunning locations. We’re asking for enough money to film the first two full length episodes.

STRETCH GOALS: For every additional $7500 we will add another episode!

Risks and challenges

As filmmakers we are aware that when you start a project you always assume that anything could go wrong. So we always have contingency plans in place - be it for permits, equipment, insurance, transportation, catering, footage, schedules, and even the weather.

We care about telling the story of Aftermath. No matter what stands in the way we'll solve it so this story can be told the way it should be!
