The critically-acclaimed Africa-set zombie film, THE DEAD has many tales of production woes and co-director/producer Howard Ford has lived to tell them in SURVIVING THE DEAD.
Described as an "uncompromising and disastrously toe-curling behind-the-scenes, blow-by-blow account" of the film's shooting, SURVIVING THE DEAD promises a host of unreleased stills from the film and its production, to reveal stories behind the corruption and bribery of local governments, to the film's actual budget (much lower than reported).
On that subject, Howard says, "Frustratingly, although I’ve since read that our budget was $2-5Million, we actually had just under $150 thousand dollars - $30 thousand of which went on corruption & bribery just to keep us moving. The crazy thing about this is that I have directed soap powder commercials that run for only 30 seconds with larger budgets than the entire 100 minutes that is THE DEAD."
THE DEAD is out now via Anchor Bay Films. You can read our positive review here, and find out more about the book (plus ordering info) at its official site.
