Director Statement

I wanted to achieve this first collaboration in one location and tap into the frenzy most of us feel when we think of the end of the world as we know it, the terror, twisted with humor the Zombies inspire. I worked with an amazing cast and crew and the outcome was a labor of love I hope you will enjoy.
