â€œZombie Bohemiaâ€ is the story of Michael, a struggling New York City artist, who just happens to be a zombie. Played by New Yorker, Shawn James, Michael is trying to find balance between his drive to produce memorable, inspired art while also being plagued by the underlying needs and urges of a zombie. In short, he is trying to gain approval and respect from the very people he is biologically wired to consume.
â€œItâ€™s not a typical â€˜Zombie eat your brains outâ€™ type of thingâ€¦ Michael is a zombie with feelings and emotions. The people that surround Michael make up a real, functioning world that any artist might live inâ€¦ theyâ€™re not just running for their lives from him,â€ said Director Vince Brando.
According to Brando, â€œZombie Bohemiaâ€ crosses several genres, and would appeal to anyone attracted to zombie movies in general, horror movies, and comedy. It has a reality TV type of feeling, and featuring a cast of quirky and entertaining characters. There is plenty of humor, with more depth than slapstick.
â€œZombie Bohemiaâ€ is the second short film by Two Man Island Productions. Their first short film, â€œHushedâ€ was featured at several film festivals, and screened in the Short Film Corner of the Cannes Film Festival in 2010. The company hopes to take â€œZombie Bohemiaâ€ to festivals in 2012. â€œZombie Bohemiaâ€ was produced by Mark Bell and written by Vince Brando and Chris Magdalenski. Featured actors include James, Will Carey, Tim Urian and Havilah Imfeld.
