Empty Nester – Extraordinaire

creating, living, loving – all in a long black skirt

we were zombie

I’ve been away from posting for awhile [and feeling incredibly guilty about that].  Spring is always a very busy time for our family and leaves little time for extras.  These past few weeks, though, Eric has been working on a movie with a local director.  When a call went out for zombie extras, the rest of us couldn’t wait to be involved.

In Beverly Lane, Eric plays a redneck zombie killer who shows up to help a small office full of people deal with the Zombie Apocalypse.

Goofing off between scenes.

Alek and I were labeled as Featured Zombies and spent an extra few days on the set causing mayhem. Oh, and goofing off between scenes.

We’re coming to get your braiiiiiiiiiiiiiins!

The movie was also covered in the local paper this morning. The article “Zombies Take Over Local Scrap Yard,” features photos of Eric and of Ravynn and Whisper.  Sadly, I can’t figure out how to copy them out from the website [because they want us to buy them]…

Now that filming is done, I’m back to website re-creation.  Writing product description copy makes my head hurt.  More on that later 🙂

    That is a great doctors note to excuse you from blogging. Very cool. A great memory for sure!

    @ ~Ifer, It was heaps of fun – except for the cold cold rain. I can’t wait to see the finished product, but it’s looking like the ETA on that will be October.

    @ JB, Thanks. Some of the photos are mine and some are by the person I handed my camera to. They turned out great.

    @ Kortney, You’re right. “Sheila can’t blog; she’s a zombie” should work just fine. But… now that I’m back among the living, I need to get it back in gear.

    Thanks for sticking with me,ladies.

    I can’t even tell you how jealous I am. What an incredibly fun thing to do! OMG! You got to be a zombie!! And it’s a way better excuse for not blogging. Mine is just, “Um, 90210 marathon was on.”

    🙂 To be perfectly honest, a good old 90210 marathon might keep me away too.
