Well we have officially changed the name of the film from Dead Meat to Grave Mistake. If you notice the whole website adress is different as well. Tell all your friends and contacts as well so that we dont lose anyone or lessen the buzz we have already created. The name change came about for several reasons from confusion of movies already titled Dead Meat to legal issues in the future. It is a much more suitable title and has an original ring to it.

First official script readthrough!!

Yes we are having acookout/ official script readthrough for the entire cast and crew! there should be about 18-20 people for the shin dig. After the readthrough we will be casting an actors head for their death scene as well. It should be great fun!! After this initial readthrough, there will be script changes and updates as well as a scene addition. I will keep you posted.


Sept 19 2006

The script is finished!!

We went out and celebrated at Turtle Mountain Brewery and had a couple of beers to celebrate. We came back to the office andstarted on our pre-visualizations (animatics) for the animated storyboards. Yeehaw. At any rate we are very excited and pre-production is now officially underway.


Sept 1 2006

Well the script is coming along great. We are about 80% done at this time and it just keeps getting better. Me and Paul are meeting about 3-4 times a week to add to it. Our writing sessions are hilarious. We start off really getting in some serious non-interrupted writing. Then we start brainstorming for about 3 or more hours at a time. It has really benifited the story imensely.

Just last night we added the most greusome scene and the most disturbing one. Both sure to please the zombie afficianado. George and Tom would be proud. I have also written to Tom Savini about doing a cameo in the film I will keep you updated as the the status of that situation.

As fo now I am fleshing out the ideas we have and adding the major dialog. I think we should be finished with the script before October 1st. That is our cutoff date anyway but I see it happening before. I'm keeping my fingers , toes and eyes crossed on that one.
