In the last episode of our zombie web series, Kenji stumbles upon a car with a mysterious dead man inside. Finding food and water, Kenji explores the rest of the car and is viciously attacked by a zombie trapped inside the trunk. Bitten and without his sword, Kenji now finds himself in a battle on two fronts — first, against a relentless zombie who’s starved for human brain, and second, against the black plague coursing through his body, threatening to transform him into a zombie himself.
Inspired by WALKING DEAD, MAD MAX, and TWILIGHT SAMURAI, my filmmaking buddies and I decided to produce our first short zombie movie. Instead of shooting an entire zombie film, we decided to break our story up into parts and produce a zombie web series instead. Each webisode will be less than 5 minutes long and end on a cliffhanger. We’ve finished writing 3 episodes and filming 2 episodes.
This is a no-budget short film that was shot on a Canon 5D Mark 3 and Canon Rebel T4i / 650D with STM lens (18-135mm STM kit lens). We hope to show that a little bit of passion and dedication can go a long way. Don’t let a lack of equipment, fear, or money get in the way of your goals!
We shot this short film with a cast of three actors and a crew of four in two days in the middle of a private park in Sacramento. We hope all you bad ass zombie fans out there enjoy our work. If you don’t, it’ll be the unfortunate end of our short-lived series, so please be sure to share our zombie short film to all your horror loving, sci-fi addled, zombie crazed friends!
