Ok, so maybe you’ve been following the exploits of Rick, Daryl, Glenn, Carl, and the rest of the Walking Dead crew for a while now. But how much do you know about Charles, Wheeler, and Tali? The backwoods of Georgia isn’t the only place hit hard by the zombie apocalypse, you know.
There’s an abandoned theater full of people in Arizona that can use some serious help as well. Also, no one on this show wears a stupid sheriff’s hat the whole time. Associate Producer Sean McBeth shed a little more light in the project.
Exile is a post-apocalyptic zombie genre series made by a self-funded, independent film crew in the Lehigh Valley and Philadelphia. We’re gearing up for another season of filming and have setup a Kickstarter to try to improve our production quality.
After releasing the first three issues of Exile: The Family You Choose earlier this year, we are excited to finally bring you the rest of the arc!
Right now, our plan is to film five more issues over the course of 2013. We’ve expanded our team and are looking forward to bringing you better quality than ever before.
We have to start somewhere, and that somewhere is Issue 4. We’re going to be renting equipment, purchasing some new gear and feeding our cast & crew, and we need your help to do it.
There are already a handful of great episodes up on YouTube if you want to catch up before the final arc of the series kicks off. Oh yeah… and you can have someone show up to your place (or your work, or Geekadelphia World Headquarters) dressed as a zombie! Guys, c’mon.
