Thanks for your support, and welcome to the Play Dead Kickstarter page.
A zombie apocalypse unites a ragtag pack of dogs in the ruined streets of Miami. Immune to the epidemic, they must stick together to survive in the midst of ferocious undead and human survivors. Sit. Stay. Play dead...
We are a group of local filmmakers in Miami commissioned by the Borscht Film Festival (www.Borscht.info) to write and shoot a short film that tells a unique Miami story. We’ve always been influenced by the roller coaster thrills of a good horror movie and the classic storytelling themes repeated in some of our favorite Disney films. We finally decided to blend those two concepts together, and what came out of it is our most ambitious project to date: Play Dead.
Zombies roam the streets in the days and nights following a horrific new virus which is wreaking havoc in Miami. Pitched gun battles and burning streets provide a backdrop for a ragtag band of dogs who are determined to survive.
Below are a few production stills of what we've shot so far!
WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT to make this film a reality. BORSCHT has pledged their support by providing us with an initial budget. But we need your $3,000.00+ dollars to make this film BIG! Seriously, LIKE HUGE!!!
I'm sure you're asking yourself, "What are they going to do with my money?" Well, let me tell you. We are going to turn the streets of Miami into an apocalyptic doggie playground! When you walk into the theater you'll be thinking of Miami as sex, drugs, and Reggaeton. When you walk out of that theater after the Play Dead screening, all that will come to mind when you think of sunny Miami is blood, guts, and doggie treats. This, my friends is what your much-appreciated donations will be purchasing. That, and some of the really cool collector's items and VIP privileges offered to you on this page. Please check them out and donate to our epic cause.
BORCHT's 2011 commissioned films are teaming up filmmakers with musicians. For Play Dead, BORSCHT is teaming up filmmakers Andres and Diego Meza-Valdes with musicians Rachel Goodrich and Amigo the Devil. Two wicked cool musicians for two wicked cool directors.
The BORSCHT Film Festival is a recipient of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation Arts Challenge Grant.
