DEBATE OF THE DEAD
Posted 27 April 2011 - 02:27 AM
DEBATE OF THE DEAD has long already been a live-action-role-playing game that has taken off with great response in just two years since its first unveiling during a comic convention in the Memphis, TN area. The plot centers on the US President and his cabinet members having an emergency meeting to discuss measures to stave off three dire political situations that have come up overnight: A foreign national has illegally fled into the states, a virus has affected a Naval crew and an insider trading ring has been uncovered with a company the President shares stocks in. It isn't long before all three problems end up horribly related, as people are turning violent, killing, dying...coming back to life to kill again.
The bulk of the film is the intense debate of national leaders, as they continuously get updated of the worsening state of things. Every passing moment forces them to reach a final conclusion of what best course of actions to take. Intertwined throughout, I will be using random footage of zombie carnage as transition scenes. The idea is to not only tell this already amazing story onscreen, but I want to build upon the stylings of films like Dead Air and Pontypool where it was more of a psychological horror. There will be gore for those who crave it, too.
Filming begins May 7th, to conclude June 25th.

Sounds like my type of film, I loved Pontypool, but everybody else was like "WTF?". I think that there are more and more "lazy" viewers, who need to actually see whats going on to understand, they don't want to have to think about things, or want to try and imagine other unfolding events. They just want to see blood and snot flying everywhere (which I don't mind watching myself if the plot and storyline warrant it!) rather than actually imagining said blood and snot flying everywhere.
