Just a couple of the concept sketches for the zombie prosthetics being made for the web series.

Help us fund this web series!

BZK! T-Shirts

One of the many, many things I've got planned for the BZK! Web Series is a series of custom made t-shirts for some of the characters. Since we need multiple costumes on occasion and I've some minor experience in screen printing, I thought - why not?

I think we'll be doing 3 in all as well as an actual "Bimbo Zombie Killers!" t-shirt, that's being offered up as part of the Indiegogo funding campaign.

And in case anyone's wondering, would this eventually be up for sale? I don't know. Hard to say because I guess there's potential copyright issues. Maybe. I don't really know, but it doesn't hurt to ask I guess, does it?

Now, if you're looking at this and wondering "What's the point?" Then clearly you've missed the joke, such as it is, or the picture just isn't doing it justice...or you've never seen RoboCop.

Call for International Zombies

I've briefly posted about this before, but I thought I should do a proper outline on it so people are aware of exactly what I'm talking about.

In regards to the upcoming web series, Bimbo Zombie Killers! Undead in the Water, we are looking for folks all over the world (currently have people as far as Scotland participating) in shooting some zombie footage that will be used in the series.

We're not looking for random footage or for you to submit you own ideas. What we're looking for is very specific and will be outlined further once the script is finalized. It has to match our own footage as well. Nor are we looking for folks to design their own makeup, I myself do prosthetic makeup and I'm creating all the makeup used in the movie, so a batch of prosthetics will be sent out to keep our undead looking consistent.

To further break it down in bullet points:

1. We will send you a list of shots needed.
2. We will send you stills from our footage in order to make it match in look and location.
3. Must be shot in full HD (1920x1080, 30fps - progressive, non-interlaced)
4. We're not looking for "character" zombies, must be simple in order to blend in. So no Mexican Fiesta Zombie or Polka Zombies please, the footage will just be unusable.
5. We will send you a batch of pre-painted prosthetics, you will need to only apply and blend them in on your own. Some makeup ability and supplies of your own will be necessary.
6. Method of delivery, or format, of final shots has yet to be determined
7. If you're concerned about your camera handling matching our own, we'll be shooting in a similar style to BZK2!. Mostly handheld and no camera zooms, it just doesn't look at all that good.
8. Footage can be shot over the course of the summer and submitted no later then mid-September.

Overall we're looking for probably 4-5 shots from everyone. Should you decide to shoot more just for fun and submit it, go right ahead - we might even do a gag reel or compilation of all the extra footage (with your names and locations even) just to do it as maybe an extra episode if we get enough.

That should answer most questions. If not, feel free to email me and ask anything else.

So that title might've been slightly misleading since you will have to work for it.

Okay, here's the idea. Right now we're about a month away from shooting the Bimbo Zombie Killers! web series. There's a buttload of FX in it and it's going to be expensive - but it will also be awesome. We're using Indiegogo to raise money and it's only been a few days but so far it's been good. We've got about 118 days left I think.

Indiegogo lets you keep track of the amount of money each campaigner brings in on a project. I think you either have to be member of the site (it's free) or at least be added to the campaign as an admin I can do that, no problem if I have your email address). So what I want to do is make this a contest, to give a bit of an incentive to those folks out there who don't care to share or repost things.

The contest is simply this: the campaigner (on the Bimbo Zombie Killers! web series campaign) who brings in the most money wins an awesome prize. The awesome prize is still to be determined, but I can tell you it'll be worth over $250 and most likely a replica of one or several items from the series. Could be a collection of zombie prosthetics, a couple masks, some of the props (there is hopefully going to be a life sized alligator head prop being built - if we get the money), who knows. Might even just be stuff from the online shop if you see something you like there. Whatever it is, let's put a $250 value on it for now.

How you bring in the most money is up to you. Share it on Facebook every day, Twitter - whatever forms of social media you're into. Doesn't matter to me how you do it, so long as you actually do it. This is open to anyone and everyone, doesn't matter where you are in the world.

If you're interested in helping out, let me know at and we'll set you up, answer any questions you might have. Whatever.

BZK! Undead in the Water Indiegogo Campaign.

While the movies might look cheap, they're not, especially this one. We've got a massive pile of FX planned and we can't do it without funding. We can do a lot with a little though, so every little bit helps folks.

You might notice the perks don't go that high up in amount, but there's more to come as things progress. So if your pockets are feeling heavy but you're just not seeing what you'd like there, check back later.Or, if you'd like to help out but aren't feeling so rich, please share, repost, or whatever to wherever. We need to get the word out as far and wide a possible.
