70 ZOMBIES NEEDED FOR ORLANDO FILMING
DRIVING THE DEAD - Fantasy/Robot/Zombie – Karl, a down-on-his-luck robot cabbie in a small town becomes the personal chauffeur to the woman of his dreams—a celebrity actress—and both are oblivious to the fact that the townfolk are slowly changing. Left alone with a known formula that makes any man--or robot—irresistible but might have dreaded side effects, sad Karl risks everything for love, but at what cost?
Reminiscent of: District 9 / Shaun of the Dead / AMELIE

WHO: UFO Technologies is a production company from New York City now in Orlando. Its most recent film Gutter King just got distribution and will be at 8 major markets this year. More info: http://ufo-tech.com
WHAT: UFO Tech is shooting a teaser trailer for its newest feature with a skeleton crew over the next few weeks and needs 100 zombies Saturday Sept 19 for key scenes.
WHERE: Meetup location in Orlando TBA
WHEN: Noon Saturday, Sept 19, 2009
WHY: UFO Tech is trying to raise more money to shoot the feature by promoting it at an LA convention October 17th. If we don’t get the teaser trailer done in time for whatever reason, we will still have full production stills available and a website.
DETAILS: At noon we pick the top zombies for close-ups and begin shooting. All zombies will be filmed so if you show, you will be filmed. Come as standard zombies, regular average-looking citizens who just happen to have become zombies.
SAMPLE SHOTS: In one shot, a zombie crowd lumbers slowly after a screaming, running CG robot (to be added later) around a corner. In another, zombies try to attack him and some alive humans in a car from his POV.
The trailer and feature will be shot on the RED camera, in ultra-HD.
