Bringing the Undead Alive in Your Screenplay

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What is it about zombies that still feels fresh (despite the smell of rotting flesh), even with a cinematic history that goes back almost as long as film itself? The living dead are alive and well, not only in film, but in television too, thrilling audiences with compelling narratives, gratuitous gore, and a brazen willingness to kill or zombify any character, no matter the “stakes”. Come join the humans behind the zombies to ask any questions that have been eating away at you.
