Z*CON is feature length film about four teen podcasters who are trapped at a comic convention when the zombie apocalypse breaks out. They use social media to share what’s going on inside with the outside world. It’s kind of like “Goonies” meets “Shaun of the Dead” set in…well….a comic convention.

Oh…and 100% of the net proceeds from this film will go to charities such as The American Red Cross & Kids Need To Read! Pretty cool idea, huh? The IndieGoGo Campaign will be running from October 1st (hey, that’s today, so why aren’t you already donating?!) until November 9th, so while you have 40 days to contribute, you never know when the zombie apocalypse will hit, so head on over and start helping with the funding now!

I, for one, am incredibly excited about this project. If there’s any place for a zombie outbreak to occur, it’s going to be at a Con. Of course you’ll have your cowards and pants-pissers, but if I know anything, I know Con people, and I can guarantee that at least half (and this is a conservative number) have a zombie outbreak plan all ready to go. Weapons, however, will definitely prove an issue when all you have to work with is fake props and “boffer” swords. Regardless, we geeks are a hardy crowd and a zombie outbreak inside of a Con, while a nightmare to some, is a dream come true for horror fans!

INDY ZOMBIE FILM ‘Z*CON’ UNLEASHES ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE FOR CHARITY

Z*Con is the second film being produced by Big Damn Films. Writer/Director Michael C. Dougherty has said that much like their first film, Browncoats: Redemption, 100% of the total Net Proceeds from the film will be donated to a handful of charities. Big Damn Films is donating the proceeds from this film to three different charities. Two of them, The Red Cross and Kids Need to Read, have already been chosen. It’s up to you to help choose the third charity.

While the last time around the focus was a well-established sci-fi setting, Z*Con takes things in a distinctly different direction taking on the horror (and comedy) of a zombie outbreak at a sci-fi convention.

Big Damn Films is currently raising funds via kickstarter. Follow this link to view a promotional video about the film and information on how you can invest to make the film a reality. The film is scheduled for a late 2013 release.

SYNOPSIS:

Z*Con is about 14 year old Matt Moore, and his three friends, who attend a local comic convention to get interviews for their podcast but end up stuck in the middle of a Zombie Outbreak at the con. Using social media, and their wits, to report on what’s going on inside the four walls of the con while dodging all kinds of cosplay zombies.
