Why the hell should I give you money?

Because Australian films generally suck. And zombies are getting old. By supporting this film, you're showing the industry the type of films you want to see - and they're not boring, dreary films made by boring, dreary old people. Let's bring some fun back to Australian cinema and flip the zombie genre on its head!

Firstly, we're going to give you a kick-ass movie. Secondly, we're going to give you some kick-ass rewards. Thirdly, all the money we can get will end up spent on screen - where it counts. The 30k we're after is for practical effects, make up effects, blood and stunts. 

This is the type of stuff we could half ass on the cheap, with a group of friends, some latex, some syrup and red dye. OR we can engage professional effects companies and do it like the real movies. Working with an internationally renowned fx company, we plan to have some big budget effects that you're used to seeing in the cinema. That's where the money will go.  

To ensure our zombies look as badass as they deserve, we've hired the awesome make-up and prosthetics dudes who worked on THE HOBBIT, THE MATRIX "REVOLUTIONS", ELYSIUM and QUEEN OF THE DAMNED - SharpFX.

SharpFX

30k is approximately 5% of our budget. Without it, we will unfortunately have to take out some of the bigger action sequences and do the smaller, cheaper version of the film. This also lowers our potential of getting theatrical distribution and getting into cinemas, or getting a wide release in the home video market (DVD, Blu ray and ondemand).

What do I get out of it?

For your contribution to the campaign, you're going to get some kick-ass rewards! The lowest reward you can give is $10 and that will buy your name in the credits of the film! Every single reward includes this proof that you're the frickin' man and a reliable companion when the apocalypse strikes!

We've tried really hard to make the rewards worthwhile, so after the $10 reward, the rewards get incrementally better. With each reward, you'll basically be getting the previous rewards plus something new. Make sure to read the parenthesis at the bottom of each perk which will include previous perks!

All funders will get access to exclusive behind the scenes content! If you pitch in some cash, you'll get access to production diaries, interviews and behind the scenes photos long before anyone else!

We've got awesome rewards from key rings and stubby holders, to personalised songs and zombie caraciatures made just for you! The biggest rewards include getting a set tour, meeting Alex Williamson, being a zombie extra and even being killed on screen!

Here's some examples from our graphic artist, showing what the zombie cariactures will look like:

So what exactly is this thing?

“Me and My Mates vs the Zombie Apocalypse” is an Australian comedy full-length film about three telecom tradesman hiding in a telephone exchange during the on-set of a zombie apocalypse.

Written and Directed by filmmaker Declan Shrubb, starring Alex Williamson and Greg Fleet, this will be the most hilariously Australian zombie film to ever be produced. It could not be more Australian! I mean, we’re filming in the capital of Australia, dammit!

Declan last year took part in the ScreenACT’s inaugural low budget feature program, and was one of three projects that were successful to receive $120,000 of investment from the ACT government. 

The program involved intensive development, including working on scripts, budgets, financing and distribution plans, as well as industry support from Andrew Pike of Ronin Films, Titan View Distribution’s John L. Simpson (who will also serve as Executive Producer) and international script consultant Stephen Cleary. 

The film will go in front of camera in Canberra in January 2014 and we aim to have it finished by early 2015. 

 

Who is in this bloody movie?

Stop hovering on me, cunt

 Alex "Shooter" Williamson

Playing the film’s lead character ‘Darryl’ is Alex Williamson, who is known to his youtube fans as ‘Shooter’. He began performing stand up in 2007, but found notoriety with his character ‘The Loosest Aussie’ amassing a total of 30 million Youtube views on his channel. He is now an avid social media content creator with widely followed Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts to go with a growing 300,000 Youtube subscribers. Williamson is currently on a standup tour which sold out at the recent Melbourne Comedy Festival, and just performed six shows at the famous Edinburgh Comedy Festival. Williamson has always had an interest in the film industry, studying film and spending some time working in Hollywood, and now he looks forward to the opportunity to bring his love of comedy and film together.

Greg Fleet 

Greg Fleet

As hard-nosed, lazy, chain smoking ‘Roy’ is Greg Fleet. Fleet’s status among Australia’s legendary comics brings a welcomed level of experience with a stand up and television career spanning nearly three decades. His credits include his infamous ‘Dave Summers’ role on Neighbours, and other television programs such as Full Frontal, Glass House, Rove Live, Spicks and Specks, as well as playing Richard Buckley on Underbelly: Squizzy. Fleet also recently wrote and starred in his own independently produced TV series, “Die on your Feet,” a comedy drama about five friends who are comedians.

More cast to be announced soon! 

What if we hit our target?

We have set some stretch goals if we're to be successful and reach our target before the end of our campaign. With the new targets, we hope to add some new rewards!

We need a minimum of $30,000 to officially green light the film, but every cent above this amount will benefit allocated budgets for special effects, blood, zombie makeups, pratical effects. We can also consider including well known Australian bands and artists in the soundtrack. With every dollar, the film will look and sound better.
