Back from the dead and hungry as hell!
Z Day is here and the undead have risen. A military experiment gone horribly wrong...a zombie apocalypse...then ZOM-CALM! A revolutionary drug from the World Health Organization makes the undead docile enough to join the American workforce. Allen Christopher Edwards, our unlikely hero, gets taken advantage of by everyone from his boss and co-workers to his girlfriend Brenda...until one fateful afternoon. When Ace is bitten and captured by the Zombie Control Force he learns of a secret plot by the evil Keeper Ellis to rid the world of all zombies. The lives(?) of all American undead, and the fate of entire world, depends on one man: Ace The Zombie.
"ACE THE ZOMBIE: THE MOTION PICTURE " is a Zombie Horror/ Comedy Film starring MARK DRUM, SARAH SIMMONS TURNER, TORYAH PUGH, BRANDON S. N. BUTLER, JEVOCAS GREEN, DAN DIAZ, ONDIE DANIEL, KEVIN JAMAL WOODS, SHAE ROBERTS, JOHN JOHNSON, LESLEY WARREN, HARRY ALEXANDER and MIKE YOW. THE MOVIE IS FINISHED. And we're mighty damn proud of it. It's scary, it's funny and not the least bit PC. It's got AMAZING PERFORMANCES and crisp, state-of-the-art HD cinematography by Rory Gordon, classic sound effects from famous films of the 30's - 80's supplied by Hollywood Sound Designer Steve Lee, hard rock, heavy metal and a MAJORLY IMPRESSIVE ORCHESTRAL SCORE Composed by Rotem Moav and Adam Fligsten and Conducted by Paul Scanling.
MARK DRUM as Alan Christopher Edwards - Ace The Zombie (and Visual FX Artist). His many performances include Fighting Angels: The Series (2010), To See Her Move (2010), Amazing Action Girls (2011) and of course his LEAD role in Ace the Zombie: The Motion Picture (2012). Just how good is he? Let's put it this way: Mark's character arc is so big Noah could have loaded it with two of every kind of animal. And his hair is perfect. SARAH SIMMONS TURNER as Colleen Wells, Research Scientist. Sarah teaches comedy improv and serves as Dean of Relapse University. She began her acting carreer at age three on the children’s program, The Uncle Al Show and has starred in many films including Escape the Day(2013), The Hanging Man (2013), Communist Robot Aliens (2012), The Pigman from the Lake(2012), Crucible (2012), Stomping Grounds (2013) and she's a reoccuring character on the International television drama, Idle Times. She's also kind to animals. TORYAH PUGH as Brenda, Ace's Girlfriend. Toryah is an accomplished singer, song writer and stage actress. Contrary to her Brenda character, Toryah isn't mean at all. But I'd hate for her to be mad at me. Just sayin. BRANDON S. N. BUTLER as Jessie, Ace's Best Friend. Brandon is an actor. guitarist. kaizen addict, and all around funny guy. His projects include Heirloom (2012), Uncanny X (2012), he is currently filming A Tell-Tale Mind and was just cast in the upcoming short film After Glow. He also wants to invite you to the "gun show", baby. JEVOCAS GREEN as Keeper Ellis, Head of the Zombie Control Force (and SFX Artist). Among his many artistic endeavors, Java performs "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" every Friday night at The Plaza Theater in Atlanta. He also recently finished season 2 of Money Power Respect, and Season 2 of Fighting Angels the Series. Java is the owner of Jymeni Productions, co-owner of 9-COP FX and Promotions and is currently scaring it up at Netherworld Haunted House. DAN DIAZ as Stanley, Henchman to Keeper Ellis. If you were lucky enough to see Richard Hempton's 2007 cult favorite Big Mistake, you'll remember Dan as Little Ed, a very scary guy. Though he's the nicest guy you're likely to meet, he sure plays a good bad guy. And he has THE coolest facial hair. ONDIE DANIEL as News Anchor Carrianne DeBeers. You may have seen Ondie on The Vampire Diaries (2010), Money, Power and Respect (2010), Fighting Angels: The Series (TV series) (2008 - 2011) just to name a few. She also owns the TFP Agency, co-owns 9-COP FX and Promotions, and was Producer and Head of SFX Makeup on Ace The Zombie. When does she find time to sleep? I suspect Ondie might be a vampire. KEVIN JAMAL WOODS as News Anchor Bud Hugley (and PA). Kevin came in during crew interviews to be a Production Assistant, which is good, you need good Production Assistants. That was until we found out he played Stymie in Penelpe Spheeris' 1994 The Little Rascals. Kevin is one funny guy. And you should see his "Thriller" dance. SHAE ROBERTS as News Anchor Joe King (and PA). Shae showed up at the crew interviews hoping to be a Production Assistant, so we let him. But he had us all laughing so hard we got him to read for a few parts too. Good thing we did, dear God this man is funny. And he wears Old Spice.
PLEASE ALLOW ME TO INTRODUCE MYSELF
Greetings. My name is Giles Shepherd, also known as The DeVille. In 1999 I joined Atlanta production company One Take Productions to learn about film and video. Over the years I've made several short films and videos and done practically every job on a movie set. I also enjoy syncing classic rock records to classic films. (Like The Dark Side Of The Moon meets The Wizard Of Oz (see SyncMovies.com). I love all of the great directors, but my three greatest influences are George A. Romero, Kevin Smith and Tim Burton. (go figure) I love movies and have always wanted to direct. Ace The Zombie is my first feature film.
