In 2012, two men retreated to a remote farmhouse to await the Apocalypse. Sh*t got real.
Motivated by growing public fear that humanity will meet its doom in 2012, Corn Bred Films is preparing to descend on the Joplin, MO area this spring to create Zompocalypso, an improvised found-footage comedy with a sprinkle of horror.
What ZOMPOCALYPSO has going for it:
- Chris Meister (actor, writer) has appeared in numerous features, television episodes and commercials in the past decade, including Office Space, The Dilemma, The Chicago Code, and The Playboy Club. In college at the University of Missouri, Chris became friends and performed in several plays with Jon Hamm, whom Chris assures us is "a helluva guy."
- Pete Biagi (director of photography) whose body of work includes over thirty short and 20 feature length films and documentaries. He was featured in the first season of Project Greenlight as the cinematographer for the feature film Stolen Summer. Pete’s feature credits include PayBack, Return to Me, and HellCab as well as the award winning indie feature Normal Life, and the television series Cupid. He also operated camera on Robert Altman’s last two films, The Company and A Prairie Home Companion. Other notable credits include Jeff Garlin’s I Want Someone to Eat Cheese With and Diminished Capacity, starring Matthew Broderick and Alan Alda.
- Mike Manship (actor, writer) is an actor, writer and improviser originally from Cary, NC, where he performed professionally with ComedySportz. He has studied with instructors from ComedySportz, iO, The Annoyance, The Neofuturists, Upright Citizens’ Brigade, Second City and ImprovBoston. He also wrote the book for T: An MBTA Musical, an award-winning musical, and the novel CAMBRIDGE STREET
- Eric Anderson (writer, director, producer) is the writer of several award-winning short films and screenplays. His screenplay BLACK RIVER was optioned by ROCK ON FILMS! and currently has Shoreline Entertainment attached as the international sales agent for the film. Another film, OTHER PLANS, is set for production in April of 2012. A third screenplay, INK, is currently looking for funding, with Pulitzer prize and Tony Award winner Tracy Letts (August: Osage County), Tony Award winner Deanna Dunagen, and Jim True-Frost (The Wire, Singles, Diminished Capacity) attached.
- A GREAT story. Not good, GREAT. Because if you’re shooting for anything less than great, you shouldn’t make a film.
- Great supporters like you.
- Enough money to make the film. You’ve already begun to help change that, but there’s a bit more to be done. Share the link. “Like” the page. Post about the film to your friends. It would make a difference.
