It’s a great sounding title, don’t you think? A great title for a book, certainly, but today, I’m not writing about books, or even writing. I’m here to tell you about a project of a friend of mine.
Not only is Zombie with a Shotgun the Twitter username of one of my followers @ZOMBIEWASHOTGUN, it’s also the title of a cool web series of short films that tell the story of Aaron, the “Zombie” of the title, and his girlfriend Rachel.
Aaron has been infected with a virus that will ultimately result in his transformation into a full-blown member of the undead, but in the meantime, the series tells of the pair’s fight to survive in a world that wants to see Aaron dead. There are questions to be answered: where has the virus come from, and how did Aaron become infected? Why has Aaron not “turned” immediately, as other zombie victims do? I’m sure that we’ll find out the answers in future episodes of this great new series.
I’m constantly amazed by so-called “low budget” films, and it astounds me at just what one can achieve with just a little money, a lot of hard work and a tremendous amount of dedication and belief in what one is doing.
To date, there have been four episodes made, and the project is the brainchild of Hilton Ariel Ruiz who created and produced the series, along with co-producer Kirk Goodall.
ZWAS‘s two main stars are Braeden Baade as Aaron, and Lynnea Molone as Rachel, and both give very credible performances. I look forward with relish to watching them in action in future episodes of Zombie with a Shotgun.
