This is John, the intrepid writer and director of Thr33 Days Dead, and a sales associate at Radio Shack. By day, he sells batteries, and at night directs the undead.
The Jasper townsfolk range from supportive to terrified of the Thr33 Days Dead production. This elderly woman looks supportive AND terrified.
Since it's largely a Christian town, Jasper might not be the best location to shoot a gory zombie movie.
The locals of Jasper, who also work for free as zombie extras, need to be trained on how to walk like the undead.
This is Terry, a full-time IT guy, and a part-time zombie. He's also the only homosexual in the cast, which fascinates the crew to no end.
Terry enters a Jasper grocery store and asks the manager if it's OK if he recruits extras for the movie. The manager is understandably confused.
Terry splatters the extras with fake blood -- it's mostly ketchup and coffee -- and it ends up looking more like excrement than blood.
One woman from the grocery store agrees to be an extra. She shouts, "Take me to your leader!" over and over. She's told that this movie is about zombies, not aliens.
A teenage girl playing a zombie has to act like she's been shot. After dozens of takes, John decides she doesn't know how to act.
Bryan, the film's lead actor, holds back John from attacking Gary, John's brother. Gary almost hit John with a pickup truck during a take. Bryan eventually calms down John so they can get the shot they need.
