Icelandic Zombies! UNDYING LOVE Trailer.
One of the perks of writing for an international movie website is that you can sometimes pimp your own wares, so this is a completely selfish act that I hope some people might enjoy.

Last summer, with the help from some fantastic friends I wrote and directed a short film, something I had been talking about doing for years but never took the first step until my friend, filmmaker Olaf De Fleur urged me to do it and we gathered a group of people for a few days and created this little zombie "epic" which was a lot more difficult than I first imagined.

The short is still in post production, the drawbacks of having everyone work for free and having a full time job that eats up most of your free moments. But it's close to the end and I thought it would be time to put together a trailer.

So here it is below. Watch it in fullscreen and crank up the volume.

Looks awesome, but probably even more important: absolutely awesome soundtrack. Shame it's only going to be a short, really looking forward to this.

So I cranked up the volume and watched it in fullscreen, my face a few inches from my monitor as I was fiddling with some cables...

Remember me to kick your ass if we ever meet in person.

Other than that: looks good! And that's a very nice poster as well.

So happy to see something close to finished from the short, Omar! Looking good and intense. Inspiring stuff, and that's the truth.

We shot it on the Canon 5 and 7 D but we had access to proper lenses which makes all the difference. The main hurdle was to get everything in focus because of the shallow depth of field that the camera has. We had minimal lights, two halogen tubes that we used but otherwise we used available light. I'd say it's 99% handheld but some shots required a tripod because I wanted to put some CGI in there afterwards.
I cut it on Final Cut and videocopilot.net was brilliant with their tutorials on how to do some simple but effective effect shots (like making a zombies head look like it's been bashed open with a baseball bat and making still shots look handheld.)

My plan for the film is to submit it to as many festivals as I can and just see how it goes from there.
