New Zombie Movie Takes DIY Media To An Extreme

May 25th, 2009 | By | Category: General, Internet TV, Video

Colin is a new zombie flick that takes low-budget filmmaking to a new extreme. The movie was reportedly shot for $70, with the help of zombies found via social networking sites like Facebook:

Our hero Colin is bitten by a Zombie; he dies and returns from the dead. We follow him as he wanders through suburbia during the throes of a cadaverous apocalypse.

Shot at locations in both Wales and London, COLIN has more than its fair share of gore, along with several ambitious set pieces including a broad daylight zombie vs. human street battle and an epic housebound siege. It is also an exploration of who Colin was when he was alive through the objects, places and people he becomes attached to.

It’s too early to know if Colin will be notable for anything other than its tiny budget. As one commenter has noted, “Apparently none of the $70 was spent on the trailer.”

    This is a step in the right direction. I’m just waiting for the other leg to swing over,

    It proves that creativity is NOT the property of the big studios.

    It proves that if you can get content you CAN distribute it for damn near nothing on the internet.

    It proves that you can get equipment for dirt cheap. (The days of only leasing Arriflex cameras for thousands of dollars a day are coming to a close.)

    The other leg swinging over will happen when someone offers up just such a production as a “pitch” for a plot that would be developed into a full blown production if money was made available by potential audiences.

  2. I’d keep an eye on as a key player in producing the next social media-based film. When I saw the link for this article, I really thought it was going to be about LostZombies. I think they have a great concept in-play.

    I don’t think anyone’s going to confuse this with El Mariachi.
