Fanboy Comics is putting out a call to every zombie lover, zombie slayer, zombie apocalypse prepper, and even to the walking (and running) dead, themselves. We have another extremely worthy and awesome Kickstarter campaign that deserves your help!
Doc of the Dead is the definitive zombie culture documentary coming from the makers of the fantastic nerd-doc, The People vs. George Lucas. After metaphorically taking on the Grand Poobah of geeks lightsaber-to-lightsaber, why take on zombies for their next doc and why now? Here’s what they had to say:
Without a doubt, Zombie Culture has now reached a tipping point. It has literally clawed itself into our braaaaains (!), successfully infiltrated mainstream consciousness, and asserted itself as one of the most important, wildly entertaining, and participatory pop cultural trends of the new century. As a direct result of this unprecedented social explosion, the Zombie Apocalypse seems to be on everybody’s lips these days. Should we categorize it as fiction, dismiss it as far-fetched paranoia, or speculate about it as a plausible scenario? We, at Exhibit A Pictures, believe there’s never been a better time to release an epic, comprehensive, and contemporary cinematic celebration of Zombie Culture.
Doc of the Dead has a number of friends of FBC on its team, including director Alexandre O. Philippe and producer Jonathan London of Geekscape.net. (Check out our interview with both Alexandre and Jonathan at SDCC 2012.) Also, be sure to check out the trailer for Doc of the Dead, featuring Simon Pegg, below:
