6/12/2012: BECOME A MOVIE MOGUL - ADOPT A ZOMBIE, WHILE STOCKS LAST
For $100 anyone can buy a zombie and help fund Wyrmwood, a film the producers call a blend of Mad Max and Dawn of the Dead, “the beast zombie film ever produced in Australia”; for $200 you get the personalised zombie, complete with personalised video message from your adopted zombie
Public (crowd) funding plans in the film range from $10 to $1000, and so far about 90% of the $20,000 target has been reached. Writer director Kiah Roache-Turner promises a “blistering, post apocalyptic” movie with Australian sensibilities.
