First online teaser trailer for 'They eat people, don't they?'(23/09//10)
After many months of working out how to create some of the huge and bizarre imagery for my next short film 'They eat people, don't they?', I have finally put together a brief teaser of the kind of things to expect from the final product. The story centres around a mock-documentary film crew, following the daily grind at an organisation which brings the dead back to life. This will be a black-as-night comedic experience, applying a more cynical and scientific approach to the zombie genre. More details here
