Christian, "I've always loved making movies and have never stopped since I was a young kid. Back in the day I would hook up my vcr, camcorder, Karaoke machine, and edit my home movies into (what I thought) feature movie masterpieces. Movie making has been a fun hobby of mine, I love telling stories and making them happen on screen. My movies are all low-budget-No-budget, all financed from my empty pockets, and using whatever I have around me to make the movie possible. I got this idea of a zombie movie when I was in high school and called it 'Wisconsin Project X'. The movie was completely different then and I never ended up making it. But, then 10 years later, now I wanted to make that movie. And, after a couple of drafts, the movie became this whole new story. I got my friends and family involved and we had a blast making a great horror monster movie. Somethings to look for when you see the film; the makeup effects of the zombies are a combination of duct tape and traditional makeup effects. I really don't lie when I say the movie was made with no budget. We basically made it out of duct tape, spray paint, and cardboard. I also, shot the entire movie on a small Digital Hi8 Camcorder -- it is all I had at the time. And, man it really works."
