About

In the 1980’s George Romero made the classic zombie movie Day of the Dead  in Ft. Myers, FL. Now, 30 years later, we went back to Florida to shoot the return of zombies to the streets of Ft. Myers – in 3D!

As Thomas Edison said, there is only one Ft. Myers and 90 million people are going to find out – what he didn’t know was that they were the living dead. And 80 years after Edison died, over 20,000 zombies rediscovered downtown Ft. Myers for one night in October.  

Zombies came from all over the country to participate in a zombie walk, costume contest, acting workshop and to try and break the world record for the largest gathering of the walking dead. Zombicon blurs the line between spectator and spectacle by encouraging people to actively participate in the event and this year over 20,000 crowded into the streets of Ft. Myers. 

We shot Zombicon and additional scenes in 3D and after screening the footage, we think we have a one of a kind immersive experience for people to see the event in a 3D capable theater or in their living room. You've never seen a zombie walk or zombie fire dancing performance until you've experienced it in 3D. And, for those unable to watch it in 3D, we'll also produce a 2D version.

The filmmakers are three friends from middle school who left Ft. Myers 30 years ago and went their separate ways. We returned for a week of zombies and filming and now we're ready to edit. This film WILL be completed. One of the three is a veteran documentary filmmaker who's directed many films - three of them on a micro-budget like this one. Those films have appeared on PBS and other national networks and screened at film festivals around the world. 

We need help completing this project because we shot it in 3D. Post-production  in 3D is challenging and requires additional software, computing power and the expertise of post-production people with prior knowledge about the technology. We'll use the money raised to produce the best-looking and most interesting film we can. 

Please consider helping us complete this project, and you'll experience a wild and fun event in a whole new way: in 3D!
