The two versions will have around fifteen minutes of  extra alternate footage

For the first time you can submit footage for a zombie film from the comfort of your own home!

This is the first time a zombie film has been made this way we are making film history and we would love for you to be a part of it!

How to be a part of this film!

We are looking for 2-5 minute clips filmed with either smartphones or webcams. to be considered for inclusion for the final film, if your clip is chosen your name  will be featured in the final credits of the film and IMDB listing page.

If you want to be part of horror film history just send over your 2-5 minute clip filmed using video capture devices from your cellphone or webcam.

DSLR footage will be considered but will only make up a total of %5-10 of the final film.

More than one person can feature on screen, please have the consent of any extra’s for the submission.

You can be a survivor talking to the camera, a loved one or even create a video log account on the day the zombie apocalypse strikes, be creative, you can use props, make up or even just make yourself up as a zombie and look at the camera, or devour some pretend flesh on screen, you can send in multiple submissions.

Regarding content submissions for Virus of the Dead

Be Creative, the whole film is a found footage Zombie film!

Anyone can provide content  for our consideration for the film!

So talking to the direct to your camera as a progressive video log, to a relative  or a friend on webcam or ether with your smartphone, a message to the police, a message to a loved one, or footage of a zombie attack.

It could be you walking or running away from zombies, or entering an unsafe environment, or even being attacked by rogue survivors!

You can basically do whatever you want so be creative! as long as the zombies are slow, and they can only be killed by destroying the brain, though the footage doesn’t have to feature zombies themselves!

The infection will hit pretty fast, so it will take between 1-5 minutes to turn into a zombie after being infected/bitten.

You can submit more than one video and also a different scenario, if you go over by a few minutes that’s fine!

As we are going back to people throughout the film itself!

If anyone wants suggestions or for us to write a mini script please get in touch!

Be creative!

Submissions close on the 20th of December 2014.

Some guidelines on the film!

This film is not a comedy, it is a non stop action packed realistic take on the zombie apocalypse.

The zombies are slow.

They can only be killed by completely destroying the brain itself.

The infection spreads quickly between 1-5 minutes – but could depend on the host and who knows some people may be immune!

No one knows what caused the virus in the first place and no one will find out in this film.

There is not a cure at this stage!

At first people are told to stay in doors then, camps were set up by the governments across the globe to help the virus from spreading further, It is mandatory to go into the camps, but not everyone will be willing to do so.

The film will be packed with blood, guts, gore and much much more!

Please Hold Your Phone SIDEWAYS When Shooting Video

We want Landscape, Horizontal shots where possible!
