About this project
Attack of the Psychedelic Zombies, Man is an Indie/Stoner/Buddy/Zombie/Comedy feature film from John, Moe, and Hilden; the guys who bring you the weekly DGRadio podcast, as well as musical productions like the ZomBOOsical! and the Shmopera.
Scotty and Dong, a pair of burnout losers who work at a small-town pizza joint, serve up psychedelic pizzas to the local hippies. When their magic mushroom harvest is contaminated by the nearby chemical plant, their peace-loving customers transform into violent, flesh-eating zombies. Compelled by an uncharacteristic sense of responsibility, Scotty and Dong are determined to fix the mess they unwittingly caused. Along the way, the pair encounter a reclusive war vet, a foul-mouthed granny, a deviant sheriff, and many more bizarre characters.
Here's the deal: the script is done, the roles have been cast, and the camera has been purchased. But in order to pull this thing past the finish line, we need $3,000 to pay for props, equipment rental (specifically: lenses and memory cards for our fancy new camera), travel expenses, and food expenses for the volunteer cast and crew for the duration of the shoot.
Speaking of which, we begin shooting in Merrill, WI on the 5th of July. This is when we'll shoot coverage shots, montage scenes, and other filler material. The following week (July 11-15), the cast will arrive in Merrill to fill in the bulk of the film. Any scenes that remain will be filmed in August and September, as we're shooting for an October release, with a premiere party in Merrill.
Any extra funds, above and beyond our $3,000 goal, will be used toward the purchase of a new soundboard and snake for our recording studio. For more information, please see Update #1 in the "Updates" tab.
John, Moe, and Hilden will be making small cameos, but are not filling any of the lead roles. We've got faces for radio.
We won't be filming the zombie horde scenes right away. Those will be coming later in July, rolling into August. Stay tuned to our Twitter page, as well as the podcast, and we'll let you know when we need zombie extras. If you can get to Central Wisconsin, you're more than welcome to join us.
We are posting updates daily on our Twitter account, which you can find at http://www.Twitter.com/DGRadio. When shooting begins in July, you can expect photos and multiple updates per day.
