About this project

What's Dead Infection?

Dead Infection is a apocalyptic web-series. It is a story following a recruit John Carter through rural England devastated by a deadly virus of which turns humans into ravaged beasts. In a land where trust is hard to come across, making friendships is a key element to survive. 

So far Dead Infection has been a no-budget film where all the crew/actors have been helping out for free and in their own time. All the money made by the series from youtube adds has gone straight back into improve the it. We would love to be able to make the film more professional for our fans to enjoy more.

What will the funds be used for?

Funds will go towards the following. 

Costumes: Our main goal in the costume department is to get the British soldiers to look as realistic as possible. The funds will go towards purchasing military equipment such as webbing, rucksacks, pouches and military accessories to get the right image of British soldiers. Other costumes would include decent infected clothes. 

Props: As we are based in the UK props such as guns are hard and expensive to get hold of. Our main goal here is to get hold of a more standard British weaponry such as the L86 LSW. We are also looking at getting props to help us with effects such as body parts and spurting blood. 

Equipment: We currently have very basic filming equipment as we just film on a Canon 550d. If we were to raise enough funds we would be purchasing equipment to improve the sound and possibly a new camera. Other accessories such as more batteries and memory cards as well would be covered. 

Locations: Getting decent locations is high on our priority list. So far we have been using forests, however these get boring very fast. We would love to be able to rent out different locations in order to make the film more interesting. 

Actors/Crew: Personally we would love to pay our actors & crew. To date no one has ever been paid for helping take part in Dead Infection and everything has been done for free and in our spare time. If we were to raise enough funds it would be great to be able to our actors/crew a thank you for helping with this project.

Can I contract you?

Yes! We would love you to contact us about any information. Feel free to contact us at nic.hawkins@live.co.uk. We look forward to answering any queries you may have.

Risks and challenges

We have many risks when it comes to filming this web-series on such a low budget.

One of our main risks is getting enough actors for each filming session. As everyone is acting for free there is always the risk that someone will drop out last minute (Which has happened in the past) causing us to either reschedule or improvise.

Another risk is the time factor. Being in the UK there is alot of restrictions around imitation firearms, it takes a fair bit of time & planning to be able to shot at a location with imitation firearms. The risk is that we don't meet our deadline when releasing every episode.

The last but possibly the most important risk is how small our team is. The whole series is managed by three people with one member doing the camera, sound, editing and directing. Being such a small crew makes certain tasks quite difficult.
