No, no, don’t be alarmed. It’s just that we finally got around to making our South African zombie movie! Potato Riot has gone international (well, it already was, but I guess now it’s gone bi-hemispherical!!).
I don’t want to give away too much about the amazing storyline, but the general premise is orphans-turned-zombies. Sounds intriguing, eh? And as usual, we managed to collect an eager cast of friends and colleagues to dazzle the screen! Everyone had a great time making it — zombies and victims alike.
Almost as memorable as the high-octane action sequences was watching the dailies with the cast and crew when we stopped shooting. It filled my heart with happiness to see the orphans at Mrs. Tshalana’s house watch the tiny LCD screen on our crappy digital camera. None of them had ever seen video footage of themselves — and this was no ordinary footage! They were evil zombie monsters with a lust for blood! And they were superb.
Stay tuned for the world premiere, some time this winter.
