Last year I was interviewed by Catalonian author and blogger Sergi Escarmis Costa concerning my coverage of Dawn of the Dead in 1978. The interview is now available in the Spanish edition of SciFi WORLD Magazine. I am hopefully that eventually it will also be available in english. Just click on the link below to read the Spanish interview.
Here is another one that has never been published for my passionate Facebook and Blog Zombie fans. As most of you know, I was on the location of Dawn of the Dead as a journalist for two nights and have published many of the better images on my commercial site.
This is George Romero directing his principal actors between shots on location in Monroeville Mall in 1978.
There are millions of fans of Zombie Films and thanks to The Walking Dead and other movies the genre is stronger than ever. What is surprising to me is the number of fans that exist for a movie made almost 40 years ago. Not only that but the fans are passionate! I was on the location of Dawn of the Dead as a journalist for two nights and have published many of the better images on my commercial site.
However my Facebook fans keep asking me to publish all of them so I am starting that process even though most of these images have degraded in quality and were not that good to begin with. This is a picture of Jeanie Jefferies the blond beauty that doubled as an extra and make up artist on the film. She is almost as popular as the film itself. Normally I would not have published this because you can’t even see her face but this is history and besides Jeanie looks great even from the side.
This is the fourth in a series of pencil renderings based on my behind the scene images of Dawn of The Dead taken on location for Pittsburgh Magazine in 1977. This one is Tom Savini an actor who was also the film’s make up director. You can see more images form the location shooting by clicking here. .
This is the third in a series of pencil renderings based on my behind the scene images of Dawn of The Dead taken on location for Pittsburgh Magazine in 1977. This is Ken Foree, one of the stars of the movie and still a working actor today. You can see more images form the location shooting by clicking here. .
I have started to experiment with doing pencil renderings of some of my on location images from Dawn of the Dead filmed in part at Monroeville Mall in 1978.This one is of Jeanie Jefferies who was a make up artist and also the “Blonde Zombie” from the movie. This is the first of a series.
