Director/ Producer Howard J Ford of hit Zombie film THE DEAD has written an uncompromising and disastrously toe-curling behind-the-scenes, blow-by-blow account of the making of the feature film that has become the global zombie movie of the year.
SURVIVING THE DEAD – illustrated with never before seen stills from the shoot – takes us from England to Africa on a harrowing journey as The Ford Brothers try to hold together a film shoot with more horror than any fictional plot could possibly contain. For anyone interested in the harsh realities of filmmaking or nuts enough to actually want to make a film, then this is a must-read guide.
“Frustratingly”, Howard says, ‘although I’ve since read that our budget was $2-5Million, we actually had just under $150 thousand dollars – $30 thousand of which went on corruption & bribery just to keep us moving. The crazy thing about this is that I have directed soap powder commercials that run for only 30 seconds with larger budgets than the entire 100 minutes that is ‘The Dead”.
