Rising Up: The Story of the Zombie Rights Movement

Laura Moss and I worked in commercial film production together for a number of years when she approached me to produce a script her husband and close friend had written.  I never had thought about creating a zombie movie before until we discussed what zombie movies meant to her. “Zombie movies aren’t actually about zombies.  They are about people who are dealing with a force that will never get tired, or stop coming after you.  They are about people under extreme distress.”  After that perspective, I couldn’t say no.  The comedic possibilities were endless.  I just had trouble eating lunch during a few production days.
