Zombie movie "A Father for the Dead" shooting in Sheffield, England tomorrow!

A father tries to protect his son from hordes of the undead whilst struggling with the realisation that his child has already been bitten and will soon become one of them...






One of the security officers at work asked for emergency annual leave and you normally need a good reason to get this but going to Sheffield to play a zombie extra (unpaid) was a good enough reason so I organised it for him (I'm a sucker for a zombie movie and so is he). So he's off to Sheffield tomorrow to be a zombie and should take some pictures of the experience himself (hopefully). Now they are being quite secretive about the filming with people only being contacted by email and given information nearer the time of shooting as to location but he has been guaranteed that he will be a zombie extra.

  15. Nice of you to arrange for your coworker to become a zombie. I think I've worked with a few zombies too.

  16. If you can't get unpaid leave to film a zombie movie, then you might as well quit as it isn't really the type of place you want to be working.

  21. This is a classic situation in horror fiction, and I like the focus on fatherhood in the concept, and how it relates to the personal horror of losing a family member like that. Also, very jealous of the chance to play a zombie on-screen.
