The picture we are producing is entitled "Nerd of the Living Dead", a low-budget zombie comedy loosely based on George A. Romero's 1968 classic "Night of the Living Dead". Principal photography began Jan. 20th and ended Feb. 6th, 2011. 2nd Unit photography will continue over the next couple of weeks.
Like Romero's classic, our picture takes place in the late '60s. The picture stars (unknown) Sam Ronick as "Elvin McBrant", an awkward twenty-something vegetarian with a penchant for condiments, who unwittingly finds himself among the Undead. "Judy", Elvin's "accidental" girlfriend (whose sweet looks belie her less than virginal nature), is played by Samantha Falk (credited actor, and niece of TV's "Columbo", Peter Falk). Though I've yet to come up with a suitable one sentence synopsis, [off the record] the key theme here is "What's a zombie to do, if he doesn't eat meat!?"
Our production company is Big Pickle Media Group (BPMG), and we are planning to release both theatrically and digitally or around June 5th, 2011. A previous picture of mine in this genre is the semi-cult "Cheerleader Autopsy".
I'm looking forward to this one for sure! Check out the cool images and links below and we'll have more for you soon!
