Zombie Girl: The MovieAug 14th, 2009 | By James Lewin | Category: General, Internet TV, Streaming Video, Video
Zombie Girl: The Movie is a documentary that looks at 12-year-old Emily Hagins and her quest to write and direct an indie zombie movie:
Inspired by an Australian zombie import called Undead, she set about her first full-length feature film, Pathogen, when she was just 12 years old.
Enter filmmakers Aaron Marshall, Erik Mauck and Justin Johnson. Having worked on numerous short films and television themselves, they were looking for a bigger project. And then they stumbled upon Hagins and her project. â€œWe all used to live in Austin, where Emily lives,â€ says Marshall, who spoke to Hulu by phone last week. â€œAnd we came across a casting call for her movie on the Internet. She was looking for 12- to 15-year-old kids to act out a zombie movie directed by a 12-year-old girl. We contacted her family, and within a week we were filming.â€
The film is viewable online for a limited time via Hulu.
Hagins has funded her second film, a ghost story called The Retelling, with proceeds from Pathogen.
