Hey everyone, Shaun here from deepFried35.

I've been a reader and frequent commenter here on Nintendolife for the last few years and thought I'd post an update about a recent project I've been working on the last few months.

Basically, I'm an actor, presenter and voice artist based in the UK and have been doing small projects for many years now. I've also been playing games for about 25 years and was recently fortunate enough to bring both of my passions together by setting up a small indie film studio in Edinburgh, UK with a director friend whom I've worked on several projects with in the past.

We've both been fans of FreddieW and CorridorDigital on YouTube and it's always frustrated us that there's not really anyone pushing small indie films here in the UK, even less so in Edinburgh, so we decided it was about time something was done about it.

In May this year we found premises and established DeepFried35. Our goal is to make media that we would want to see ourselves, things we know gamers are wanting and appreciate. Our first project, 'The Real ZombieU', is a homage to ZombiU on the WiiU. We chose this concept after getting a WiiU and a copy of ZombiU last Christmas and loving it. It got us thinking how cool the Gamepad would be for certain games and ultimately how we could use it in a film in some way. It was fairly easy for us to choose to make a short film based on the game as we both love anything zombie related and we both loved the Gamepad.

These last few months working on the project we've had plenty of setbacks that could have de-railed the project at any time, however we were both determined to work through them as it was something we were committed to. We had local council people tell us we could use a location one minute then change their minds literally days before a planned shoot, causing us to have to delay for several weeks in order to get cast and crew together for alternative dates. We had actors not show up on the day of filming due to family problems and this was all while trying to organise a studio and work full time jobs to fund the project and studio.

Fortunately we found cast and crew that wanted to work on something fun and I think they knew we were both committed which in turn encouraged them to carry on. So far we've done everyone on an almost non-existant budget, only £250, but we've tried to make it look like as professional as we could. We're now only a few weeks from release of 'The Real ZombieU'. Last night we uploaded a teaser to youtube which can be seen here:

We've also been busy releasing C.O.B.R.A WANs (Weekly Apocalypse Newsletters), promo pictures and updates to let anyone following the project know what's been happening. If this is the first you've heard of the film, then we'd love it if you checked out the website or social network pages, as there's a ton of info and bonus content on them. There's easter eggs galore and tributes to games/films we both love, hopefully people will try find them all, kind of like Pokemon

We've put our hearts and souls into creating not just a short film but a whole back story and other materials to keep the hardcore fans out there occupied.

That's a little about us and our little project, we hope you guys enjoy it. Let us know what you think. We're hoping Nintendolife puts up the teaser and then the film when it's ready as it's mostly related to Nintendo material. If you want to help spread the word, like us on Facebook/YouTube or Twitter, we'd really appreciate it and it'll motivate us to carry on with future projects having your support.
