Dead News Report

In Theatre : Unknown
Director(s): Bill Allan

The movie starts out behind-the-scenes in the studios of WDNR, where we see the chaos of trying to run a news studio while zombies are terrorizing the whole world. The opening sequence establishes the lay out of the facility, showing offices, conference rooms, copy/fax rooms, and the studio floor and control rooms. We see crewmembers trying to keep up with their jobs on camera, lighting and sound, reporters on phones getting updates, anchors broadcasting, and the director arguing with the producers. We get a general sense of the high stress, anxiety, and tension in the studio environment, which is a microcosm for the world outside.

At a certain point, we switch to the 'broadcast news' look; which is shot with studio cameras, studio lighting, the broadcast news set pieces, character generator graphics/titles/lower-thirds, etc. In this broadcast news style, we get a news report from the head anchor, which gives the audience a basic background story of everything that has happened up to this point. Then, the anchor begins cutting away to some news reports.

Between news reports, we come back to the broadcast news segments, as well as the behind-the-scenes segments. We get some insights into our director, producers, anchors, and reporters. We see and hear the opinions and attitudes of the crew. The relationships between management and crew, crew and talent, and talent and management start to develop, and we see that within each of these relationship circles there are sub-plots and conflicts as well between certain characters. The complexities build as the situation becomes more intense, and one by one, the conflicts climax, resulting in someone quitting or leaving and someone else 'winning'.

By the end of the movie, the studio environment is down to a skeleton crew. Only those loyal to the station and to the effort of staying on the air have remained. The environment is also full of obvious visual clues indicating that a hurricane of chaos has fallen upon the once-orderly studio.

A montage of paperwork, tapes, office supplies, and technical accessories litter the studio, control room, and offices. Ultimately, as the story has developed, we can tell that it is getting harder to maintain order while the world falls apart, but the station is going to keep broadcasting the news for as long as it can.  The details of the end sequence will remain unpublished.

Editors Note: This is an INDIE zombie flick that we have limited information on, please feel free to contribute information on our forums. To visit the official website for this film, just click Dead News Report .
