About

THE Film - "GROUNDEAD: HOW NOT TO SELL A ZOMBIE"
With his family on the brink of losing their home to foreclosure, and summer break just around the corner, 14-year-old Zane Keats is ready to put aside the stress and make the best of his vacation…Well, that was the plan until he ends up grounded. When things seem like they couldn’t get any worse, a shortcut to school brings Zane face-to-face with a real life zombie! Where most people would be running for their lives, Zane sees the walking corpse as a blessing in disguise. Teaming up with his slacker uncle, the two concoct a plan to sell the zombie to a seedy local side-show. Seems easy enough, sell the zombie, make a ton of money, save the house! That might have been the case if it weren’t for a double crossing side-show owner, a black mailing little sister whose birthday is just days away, and having your eccentric Uncle Rome as a business partner. Compared to the craziness that surrounds them, being grounded is starting to look like a walk in the park.


THE Creators
Nick is a music video/commercial director based out of Houston,TX.
Cody is a writer and special effects makeup artist based out of Syracuse, NY.
