With two current projects in the Zombie Horror movie category, “Theatre of the Dead,” directed by Patrick J. Gallagher and “Me and My Mates Vs the Zombie Apocalypse,” scripted and directed by 21-year-old Declan Shrubb, he had much to tell the assembled critics about how to get financial backing for a film.
Given that most of the critics present were from the theatre panel, the differences in the scale of funding, the lead-time and the complexities of judging the target audience for film production were explored. Other questions related to the considerable involvement of ScreenACT in the second project.
Daniel outlined the increasing importance across the arts of crowd-funding.
