"Zombies 1985" is one in a series of short horror and science fiction films that are created to be performed with a live score. Here's an extract of a live performance for one of our previous films, "The Silence".
Zombies 1985" tells the story of greed and self obsession in 1980's Britain. The film will be created by the collective I Speak Machine, directed by Maf Lewis, score composed by Tara Busch and Benge Edwards, and featuring Lee Bane.
Steve is an upwardly mobile entrepreneur who believes he has come up with the next big thing - the next Rubik's Cube. "It's going to be bigger than Betamax!".
The film covers his journey home from a super successful day at the office where he's all but closed the biggest deal of his life. Just a couple of mobile phone calls on the way home and it's in the bag. However, as he races back to celebrate with his wife and kids, we witness his fall from apparent certain victory to increasing infuriation - everyone's suddenly stopped taking his calls. His anger and desperation boils over when he can't get anyone on the phone....not his secretary, his investors, or his wife. All the while, the Zombie Apocalypse is happening around him; he's just too self absorbed to notice it... until he gets home.
Risks and challenges
This will be the third short film we've shot this year. The previous two went to schedule and were completed within budget. We are all very confident that the film will be completed, we'd like to think that we have the ability overcome anything beyond an actual zombie apocalypse... though we'd be there to document it.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
