Zombies have become such a huge part of mainstream media today that I am pretty sure there has been many conversations between friends that led to the question, “What would YOU do during the zombie apocalypse?”
That is what Wasted is about and we spoke to producer Steve Kasan about the series and the CineCoup challenge that they are currently participating in.
Tell us about Wasted and where did the inspiration for it come from?
Wasted is about a group of friends in their mid 30s struggling in their lives with work, responsibilities and other things out of their control which goes completely out the window when the Zombie Apocalypse happens. When there is no rules, they get Wasted. The story starts with this group having a discussion as to what they would do if a zombie apocalypse were to happen after watching their favourite zombie franchise, Dealing with the Dead, starring their favourite Zombie Killer actress, Lovina.
When they step outside to get something to eat they find a zombie apocalypse has happened. Now they must use their knowledge from video games, comic books, literature, movies, the internet, and life to survive & have high adventures in the waste land.
The cast of Hollow Ship returns on the Defective Geeks podcast, this time with creators and actors, Curtis Fortier, Helen McElwain and Steve Shaw. We delve into finalizing episode 00 and what it’s like to wrap up a Kickstarter project… all while we took over The Comic Bug in Culver City and drank wine!
Let’s admit it, geeks. These days, we take ourselves, our community and our fandom way too seriously. We are a sensitive bunch with teddy bear hearts and we want to love our comic books so bad it makes us cry some times. With that said, a new web series premiered online today and it is called Geek Cred. Now, the word ‘cred’ already implies things on many different levels. It’s a brave word to use in a title that also has the word ‘Geek’ in it and for many, it might be taken on as a challenge.
You can watch the first episode now online but I had seen the show last Sunday at the premiere party with the cast and crew at Busby’s in Los Angeles. How did I feel after I saw it? I felt pretty darn good.
