About this project

We’re plunging headfirst into Season 2 of our haunted house docu- reality web series: Days of the Living Dead. What we’re attempting could possibly be filmmaking suicide but we want to shoot and edit this show in basically 2 months. And in order to do it we need your help!

That’s right, remember back in high school when there was that group of freaky kids with mohawks or death metal t-shirts? Maybe at your school they were the weirdest weirdos of them all. That’s right: the musical theater kids. Well, if you could imagine a magical world where all these misfits found each other and joined forces to build two of the biggest and most successful haunted houses in the country, then your worst nightmare is reality. With their powers combined they are Zombie Army Productions. Intrigued? Take a sneak peak into their world through our lens of “Days of the Living Dead” a docu- reality web series that follows the incredible antics of Zombie Army throughout this Halloween season.

The Kickstarter fundraising campaign will allow us to pay a warrior editor willing to sacrifice their entire month of October to editing this show around the clock. Considering it usually takes about 3-7 years to produce and edit a documentary we’re ambitious when we say we’d like to shoot and edit this show all during the Halloween season. We’d also like to afford additional camera equipment to allow us to get great footage inside the haunted houses as well as afford a halfway decent website and some better motion graphics for the show.

WHAT YOU GET OUT OF IT (except for warm fuzzies)
In exchange for your generous pledges we’d like to sell you some merch! Because we will be so busy producing a show for you guys we plan to ship all of these t shirts, dvds, and posters out as Christmas presents, unless we can find a Halloween elf to help us get them to you sooner!

This is go big or go home time and we plan to go big with this web show, this campaign, and this Halloween season! Translated this means that if we come up just a dollar short of our fundraising goal we wont receive a dime and then the show will go on of course, but it will suffer, which will be a crying shame.
However, the bigger we go, the better the show and hopefully with enough of your help we might even go above and beyond the goal we've set for ourselves, and since we are obviously over achievers, we pledge that your Christmas gifts will be individually wrapped in awesome zombie paper and and black bows!

Days of the Living Dead will launch in early September, and if all goes according to plan Episode 1 will drop BEFORE our funding deadline is over which means instant gratification for you guys. Please keep tabs on us via facebook and twitter since we update daily and you can truly get down in the trenches with us as this production unfolds!
