Back in January, you were good enough to publish an article on Boing Boing via the Submitterator about my quest to make a zombie post-apocalypic web series in the real-life abandoned spaces of New York City.

As soon as the story went up, everything changed. Donations came flooding in. The story got picked up by other blogs and famous people retweeted it. We met our goal and then some.

I've spent the last 5 months writing, shooting and editing the series. We're planning on launching the first episode on July 1st.

We have a trailer online that shows what we're up to.

The Silent City


  1. The only thing that’s silly about this, is the fact her make-up is still picture perfect. She’s been sitting in a hot room for who knows how long, her face should be sweating. Even afterwards, her face is always perfectly clean, perfectly make-up’d. That just keeps it boring and unrealistic.

    1. I was just about to say that! But on the other hand its mighty that someone does something cool that they love. I’m gonna buy it if its available (but I’ll still giggle a little about her not only perfect make up but very much overdone make-up (glue on eyelashes and killer-level-mascara))

    2. Obviously, no one here has heard of the Covergirl post-apocalyptic line of makeup.  I noticed the makeup too, but I think they were completely different scenes and could have spanned days, because I think she was wearing another outfit?  I’m fairly certain that there are women in the world that wouldn’t let a little thing like an apocalypse keep them from using makeup.  /shrug

  2. I for one, am so sick and tired of all this stereotyping of “zombies”….  They are just like  “vampires” and “werewolves”, they just want to fall in love, get married and live the “American Dream”…..  All they want is a better tomorrow and when they sit around their “kitchen table”, they are just as concerned about the future as you and me…. 

  3. The woman should not be wearing makeup, or at least, it should not be perfect, also, hair should be dirty. Furthermore, crossbows do not have recoil.

  4. Suffers badly from Overly Attractive Post-Apocalyptic Survivor Syndrome.
    Also: I saw plenty of guys in black rags and goggles, but no zombies.

  5. This reminds me of the series I’m currently making (albiet with less support).  

    Only mine uses “found” footage and is set in the immediate aftermath of the initial out break.  Im currently in pre-production for episode 2.
