IronE Singleton was definitely a show stopper at Atlanta’s Walker Stalker con. Speaking of show stoppers, he had his ‘Blindedsided By The Walking Dead’ show which was attended by several of the Walking Dead celebrities. In this interview I asked IronE about his show.Dead, Buried, and Back! would like to extend a special thanks to Project iRadio for the interview.
Z.14.12 is Straitjacket Studios’ debut short film, produced and shot entirely on location just outside Atlanta, GA featuring all local based actors and crew. It also includes music by Atlanta’s own ON ‘TIL MORNING. The film is currently in the final stages of post-production and is planning to begin film festival submissions in early November.
The story features Zack (Michael Filisky), a horror fanatic, amateur prepper and his partner Jess (Chelsea Howard) as they face the realization of the ultimate apocalyptic event, only to find that things are nothing like anyone had predicted. They and their house guests must find their way out of this horrifying dilemma as all preparations prove useless.
Given the recent explosion of the zombie genre, humans are becoming far too acclimated to surviving a zombie apocalypse…enter Z.14.12. What if none of the existing rules applied? What if all attempts failed? What if WE WERE ALL WRONG? Z.14.12 takes us in a new direction using a unique and witty approach to the genre. It is specifically very story-based, (as opposed to just more blood and guts), where the storyline differentiates it from most other zombie films. What if nothing was as we expected…yet the REAL explanation was right…under…our…noses all along? Z.14.12 is an escalating thriller climaxing with a revolutionary twist, conceptually planting the seed for a new direction of the zombie genre. Z.14.12 is indeed the REAL “Z” day.
The film features all Atlanta-based actors, all who have been involved in various projects both in and outside of Atlanta, notably appearing in “Snapped: Killer Couples” on the Oxygen Network as well as featured “walkers” on AMC’s “The Walking Dead.” Z.14.12 also includes Atlanta zombie personality Stan Bowman (“Stan the Zombie”), as well as voiceovers by award-winning sports reporter Tommy Kane and news reporter turned actress Tara Jones.
Z.14.12 director A.J. Caruso began his career as a touring musician in the last 80’s opening for acts such as CHEAP TRICK, REO SPEEDWAGON and FOREIGNER, eventually progressing into film composing, where he has scored the award winning films “My friend, Oscar.” and “Bury Me.” A.J. has since turned to film making, writing, producing and directing his short film debut Z.14.12.
Recently R.J. Tolbert the creator of the iconic Ghost face mask says the Scream TV show may not feature the mask. I know what you’re thinking…I’m thinking the same. What’s the point in having a show without him. According to RJ Tolbert, the man who created the “Ghost Face” mask that’s become synonymous with the franchise’s serial killers, won’t be a part of the new series.“I had been in communication with TWC regarding this and they have informed me, that as of now, and during the initial launch that Ghost Face is not involved in the new format,” Tolbert told “Scream” fan siteGhostFace.co.uk. He doesn’t rule out the possibility of the mask coming into play later on in the series, but as of now, there is no involvement.
Tolbert also indicated it is the decision of the producers and filmmakers who own the “Scream” franchise to not incorporate the mask into the new series. “”While Ghost Face is owned by Fun World, the ‘Scream’ motion picture franchise is owned by The Weinstein Company and it is their option to film a movie or TV show without Ghost Face,’ he continued.
How many of you watch Z Nation? If you’re a fan, then this is good news! Syfy has renewed the show for a second season. The fast paced, zombie killing show centers around getting the only survivor of a zombie bite to a lab to create a vaccine. The renewal news has come in the midst of the show’s first season, which has achieved consistent, yet middling ratings since its series premiere. In spite of the non-Walking Dead numbers, SyFy is putting its weight behind the zombie drama.
