Con of the Dead

This is one fun movie! Every year at Norwescon, we do the Let’s Make a Movie! workshop and this year, some of the biggest movies were all about people coming back from the dead and cannibalism (“...zombies are forever,” claimed Ryan during the planning session). So naturally, we found ourselves drawn to covering this previously unexplored territory.

Once again, we skirted the terrifying edge of parody and outrageousness with some really edgy stuff, much of which is certainly going to get us into trouble all over again every time we show it.

By all means, if you’re interested in this or other movies we’ve made at Norwescon, visit Ryan’s Norwescon movies page!

If you want to be in one of our movies, or help with one, just find the workshop at the next Norwescon. Seems like we usually have our first workshop Friday morning.
