this used to be our family blog entitled "British Royalty versus the Ramsey Clan" (since i'm descended from King Edward II and jon is a descendant from the Ramsay Clan) but since jon never participated, and my mom is the only one who reads this, it is now a format for writing her letters. I mean, for writing you letters, mom.

Art of War (Arthur DeGuerra) THE MOVIE

Through the lense of Jon's cinematic eye, we catch here a glimpse into the behind scenes of the making of Art of War the movie (a zombie comedy... zomedie). This movie will premier this August 23rd, at an uptown theatre in Minneapolis. Come Join us! Because if you don't, no one else will.

no one had their lines memorized; quick script reading before takes was common:

Zombie Drew:

Val (played by susan) kicks some zombies in the bollocks:

the blood:

Insane office workers band together planning to overtake the living dead:

their Honorable Office Master (flanked by the office scanks) agrees to go to war against the zombies:
the stars of the story fuel up on prison burritos and load their weapons:
Beardo takes a quick moment to write in his diary. Keep Out!

Dave, the sound guy, records the sound:
Darryl. That is all. Darryl.

a good combination: psychotic individuals with weaponry:

And... Action!

more stars of the film look motivated as they wait four hundred years for planes to stop flying overhead in order to get a good shot of one lousy scene:
Arthur DeGuerra: armed and ready:
Holly Golightly showed up to help out with acting and motivation:
Jon directs as the actors listen intently:


(alison feigh)

[[Police ask: What are the living dead doing on your front lawn???]]
Jon directs some more while Dustin produced:
Wendy (carrie) gets her arm eaten by her boyfriend--turned-zombie, as her brother Art, waits with ax in hand:

white boards were needed for lighting purposes:

(sam meyer)


On Location in a Parking Ramp...
Susan helps zombie-make-up-ify Tom Butler:

Krista Stocks, the true make-up artist on set, paints Josh Feit:

Josh after a kill:

Let me eat you:
(paul robbinson)

I look absolutely...not like me in that Darryl picture. It's actually frightening.

Courtney said...

Ok so my comment is going to be off the subject since I'm speechless!

Sue, you always look so adorable with a pixie cute!

I have ZERO lines in this movie. But obviously my acting talent is great because I did my big "kill then die" shot in ONE TAKE. When is this going to be screened?

Andrew said...

Sue, it looks great. Courtney, can you say "date night"? Keep us posted on the time and location.

What a riot!! Wish we were close enough to attend the premiere!! Maybe it will make it to Utah? Oh and I agree with your friend Courtney - your hair is really cute!
