The second installment in the Filmmaker Spotlight series pits Jeff Konopka against the Brothers Pierce, sons of Bart Pierce creator of photographic special effects for Evil Dead and writer/director duo for the new zombie film Deadheads. If you would like to better understand the world of independent cinema… If you have always wondered what it’s like to be a filmmaker relinquishing your film to the festival circuit’s dark majesty… If you have wondered what it is like to be the son of special effects legend… Open your ears and listen to the sound of The Pierce Brothers tellin’ it like it is.
Haven’t heard or seen Deadheads yet? You need to get your eyes in the right place.
Two inexplicably coherent zombies awake amidst a zombie attack and decide to take a road trip to find the one’s lost love, unaware they are being chased by the agents of a ruthless company with it’s own agenda.
The zombie movie evolves yet again and you’re around to watch.
Some highlights from this entry into the mind of the indy filmmaker:
-War stories in modern independent cinema
– Growing up the sons of Bart Pierce, the man with the basement and the effects
-The intimate life of sharing the duty behind the camera as brothers
-Film fest politics 101: This ain’t your daddy’s Civics class
Deadheads is available on VOD and for DVD purchase pretty much everywhere, but if you’re stuck looking for a place to pick up this gem try Amazon or iTunes. Call your cable television provider and tell them to get
their act in gear.
