Calling All Phoenix-Area Zombies [Local]

Have you always wanted to dress up like a zombie and be part of a movie? I know you have. And if you're in the Phoenix area (or want to drive from further away) this Saturday, you'll get your chance. Jim Politano and Pete Ghandour are looking for your help. They need a zombie hoard! They're filming a movie on the Gila River Reservation and will be meeting at Albertsons on Riggs & Gilbert.

 You should be dressed and ready to leave at 10:30am sharp. If you participate, you'll be invited to attend a screening at the Phoenix Art Museum as part of the zombie mob. How cool is that?

 If you're interested, more details are below. And for some added fun, I've included footage from this year's Zombie Walk at Phoenix Comicon.

 Arrrhah *gurgle* aahhharehahh *gurgle* Start practicing!

Zombie Movie Filming 

Where: Meeting @ Albertsons Riggs and Gibert Rd in Chandler (dressed and ready) Filming @ Gila River Reservation (15 minutes south of Albertsons) Group will be escorted and supervised by a Gila River Representative (We will carpool / caravan).

Film Info: The movie will be screened at the Phoenix Art Museum upon completion. Participating Zombies will receive an email with screening time and date. We will be attending the screening as a zombie mob. Music& food are provided at the screening. Drinks will be available for purchase. The Film will also be shown at a number of Regional Film Festivals. Come help us out and see yourself on the big screen!
