Andrew: One of the biggest things that I think we can do now is kind of start recruiting the crew.
Elizabeth: I could summon people off agent TV because we want to get them in to art, camera people.
Andrew: That would be brilliant, that would be great.
Matt: I would like to form my own crew, at least because I am going to be working with them. We are going on them. So give me a list of people we will need and all add on to that list.
Andrew: Another thing is the makeup staff. What is going on with that is fast and how long until we can start production.
Matt: That guy I was talking to before, he has not gone back to me so I was also looking for like books and videos basically tutorial stuff on like how to do these kinds of stuff.
Male: All right.
Male: Okay there we go. Blood.
Male: By Monday.
Matt: Right, Monday or Tuesday, okay on Monday, he is going to have a final product of research done correct? So that is one of the things you are going to have to holler at.
Male: Essentially, send it off to everyone you guys about crew and cast. Get the news up there that we need people.
Male: There is the basic little thing there and then see these buttons all work so we can press home and that is what it looks like. About, we have the description that is going on there. Pictures here is some concept pictures that Patrick Pierson drew for us from the script. So yes, he read script. I like that one a lot. That is our blow to the screen too. This should be working and if it is not, there you see, it is working.
Male: One of the ones we are talking about is like maybe just a screensaver where it is all black and then you see a zombie walk out enter like the light and then it keeps on walking really slowly. After a while he hits the screen and falls down and then you can speculate, that is why we are good. That is our screensaver.
Female: We have a lot of zombies just like pile up.
Male: And yes you know how screensavers have options. You can go to the site and change the options or something. You know like more zombies walking to the screen and then there is one where they start running near each other. And that is something that we can tell them like we are doing the principal photography on Matt’s show. When there is a shot for zombies are not being filmed and then when there is someone else, we are going to split the charge of that. Just get something together to do this. We are just going to do this for fun. These are cool times and they will have fun doing that. That is funny stuff within the screen. That is exactly what marketing is. It is just essential talking into your websites and stuff like that and saying this is for you. So if you want it, you can take it and if you would not, I would not have my feelings hurt or anything. And normally they all like it and take it. So that is the kind of like according to Mark, that is what they love is free shit.
Male: Zombie calendar.
Male: The calendar, oh my god, how funny would it be zombies like—
Male: There will be other zombie all the time. That will be bad.
