Young, Kewley, Gorman and Zachariah for new Australian Zombie film

Young, Kewley, Gorman and Zachariah for new Australian Zombie film

I hit the road for a while with my new film, and what happens? One of the Aint it Cool lads starts mixing with the undead! (insert film critic joke here).

A super-sized version of Movie Extra’s “Where Were You” – the hit Webfest entry by Edward Drake – is about to make love to your peepers.

Film’D Media and Drake Ex Pictures’ “Animals”, based on the short about a zombie epidemic, fixes on two estranged lovers coming together “to fight time, the infection and their own government to escape the Red Zone”.

The cast includes a formidable line-up of local talent, including Sweeny Young (“Terra Nova”, Melissa Howard (“Rush”); Jeremy Kewley (“Blue Heelers”), Reg Gorman (“The Cup”) and Scott Brennan (“Skithouse”). But like any good post-apocalyptic actioner (for instance, “Tomorrow When The War Began” had Colin Friels), there’s always a starry cameo – in this case, Drake has web critic and TV presenter Lee Zachariah (formerly ‘Latauro’ of Aint it Cool News and recently the host of a small-screened love-letter to film titled “The Bazura Project”), in his first major film role!

“Animals”, written by Drake and Joel Mitchell and produced by Drake, Mitchell and newcomer Hannah Brown, is utilizing a unique combination of Canon 5D MkII and Sony PMW-F3 cameras to realize the post-war world of the film with a sense of realism and immediacy not found using film stock. This marks the first time a major Australian feature film has been shot using this unique digital approach.

Shooting locales will include Tullamarine airport, just outside of Melbourne, and the Truganina Explosives Reserve (please don’t tell me Zachariah is going to be blown in two! I don’t know how Kate will feel about having to share the bed with two Lee’s!)
