Film fans to choose plot for Swansea zombies
Zombie are coming to South Wales - providing they get a little help from film fans.
City-based film-makers Geek Media are behind the movie project, which will see their movie released as an interactive app, allowing viewers to control how the story unfolds.
The film features former Mr Wales Mark Tancock, and Swansea Life cover girl Lisa Medwell, and will be filmed at Oakwood Park, where managers are allowing the grass to become overgrown over the winter, ahead of filming in February, to allow it to look completely abandoned.
The final product will be available worldwide as an App, on both Apple and Android markets, as well as a DVD version, which will have the same basic features.
Producer Tom Woodrow said: “The whole project is based in South Wales.
“The story starts towards the end of a zombie apocalypse, most of the population are dead and we follow five students from the local university, who have survived by boarding themselves up inside their house.
“When they arrive at the theme park all comedy hell breaks loose.
“The writers use a complicated story map to create a narrative which allows for many different story lines and endings, so every time you watch the movie it will be different.”
Geek Media is behind a documentary travel show featuring Danny John-Jules, from Red Dwarf, due to be broadcast on television on November 10.
To fund the zombie project, Geek Media has launched a Kickstarter campaign, to help them raise £10,000, by November 10.
Kickstarter provides anyone to contribute to the cost of the film, from anything from £1, in return for credits
Tom added: “When the app’s out for general release, we plan to make additional interactive film apps.
“The future is even more exciting. If this first movie is a success we plan to work with up and coming writers to make more film, and to include many more genres.
“We are also looking at a script writing competition for schools to either write a story map and then a script, with the winning one being made into a film.”
