The Victoria Film Festival has selected the romantic-zombie-comedy, A Little Bit Zombie, by first-time feature film director Casey Walker, as the Canadian Gala taking place on February 4 at the Odeon Theatre in downtown Victoria, British Columbia.
“We were pretty shocked that our little zombie movie was selected to be the Gala. It was while living on Vancouver Island in the ’90s that I decided to go to film school, so its kinda awesome to be going back there to premiere my first film, said Walker who has just released the official trailer which you can find after the jump.
Several cast members will walk the red carpet at the Gala, including Shawn Roberts (of the Resident Evil films), Crystal Lowe (Final Destination 3), Kristopher Turner, Kristen Hager (Being Human) and Emilie Ullerup (Sanctuary).
In the screenplay co-written by Christopher Bond, co-creator of Evil Dead The Musical, and Trevor Martin, Steve (Kristopher Turner) gets infected by a virus the week before his wedding and tries to keep it together so as to not incur the wrath of his Bridezilla-to-be (Crystal Lowe). While he attempts to fulfill his overwhelming desire for brains he must elude an obsessed zombie hunter (Stephen McHattie), who is hot on his trail.
Casey Walker, the director and producer, is a veteran TV director (Survive This, The Adrenaline Project, How to be Indie). Considered a pioneer in crowdsourced fundraising, he financed A Little Bit Zombie through his initiative called My Million Dollar Movie. During the last five years Walker successfully raised $1.9 million by selling over 195,000 frames of the film to more than 600 people in over 25 countries.
