You all know about our love for Zombeavers, but a little while ago we were tipped off to another zombie flick that sparked our interest. Waterborne comes to us from the land down under. But the only Men at Work we see here are a DEP agent testing the water of a local stream and a crotchety old farmer. Something has gone terribly wrong in the local water supply which is effecting the wildlife and Todd (Martin Blum) is going to get to the bottom of it, but what he doesn’t know just might end him.
Waterborne is a short film with a total running time of just under 9 minutes. It’s enough to lay some great foundation to a cool storyline but unfortunately leaves you wanting more. We’re hoping this will be the first part of a much bigger project yet to come. If they stick with this style it should be great. This short has been tearing up the film festival circuit for a while now and for good reason. The cinematography is really well done and much better than what we usually see in short films like this. The ‘zombie roos’ are the right amount of cute and scary to add more effect to their roll. Overall this is a fun little flick that is definitely worth the 10 minutes it will take you to watch it. Seriously, scroll down and watch it below 😉
Octopod Films and Veritas Entertainment, in association with Deadpan Films, are proud to bring you ‘Waterborne’ – the world’s first zombie kangaroo film, and a prequel for a feature film currently in development.
Turn down the lights, put on your headphones (for extra sound design awesomeness) and enjoy!
Shot on location in regional Victoria, Australia, the film only came about due to the amazing support from over 250 crowdfunding backers, who helped fund the creation of an incredible zombie kangaroo puppet, as well as a digitally animated zombieroo.
The film has screened at over 50 festivals around the world (including big genre festivals such as Fantasia, Fantastic Fest, Sitges International Film Festival) and won multiple awards.
