Director Marc Price gives us the true meaning of making something out of nothing. Marc Price spent 18 months making the zombie film “Colin”, while working nights at a taxi company.
The new zombie movie costed only $70 to make. The tiny budget was spent on a crowbar and a couple of tapes, and some tea and coffee to keep the zombies happy.
They managed to get 50 brilliantly made up zombies and stuff them into a living room, by advertising for volunteer zombies on social networking sites Facebook and Myspace and borrowing make-up from Hollywood blockbusters.
The end result is “Colin” a zombie film with a heart.
COLIN, is one of the first Zombie movies told entirely from a Zombie’s perspective. The hero Colin is bitten by a Zombie; he dies and returns from the dead. He is followed as he wanders through suburbia during the throes of a cadaverous apocalypse.
Director Marc Price says he came up with the idea to make a no-budget film because he realized that he and his friends would never be able to get enough money to make even a low-budget film.
The British director is currently enjoying his success at Cannes with “Colin” the new zombie. Major Japanese and Hollywood distributors have shown great interest in the zombie movie and Zombie fan Web site zombiefriends.com called it “as original as [George] Romero’s “Night of the Living Dead”.
With the current economic climate it seems to be a great way to make movies.
