Texas with the Dead (and near dead)

We've just barely crept past the halfway mark on Joe R. Lansdale's CHRISTMAS WITH THE DEAD. Two more weeks and we should be finished. I haven't had the time to look at all the footage yet, but what I have seen has been terrific. The Texas weather is even more brutal than I thought it would be. We shot a big scene out in the woods a few days ago and it was near triple digits in the middle of the night - and that was before we got the lights going. That's what's left of me in the picture above, sitting around with a zombie. I'm the one on the right.

Below is a shot of the crew after a long day.

If I have time I'm going to post some individual shots of the crew and introduce them to you over the next couple weeks. We have quite a few interesting characters working with us.


  1. Great to hear. I'm really looking forward to seeing the finished product and becoming a mogul.

  2. Glad to hear it's going well. Really looking forward to seeing it.

  3. Terrill has performed a excellent job during production. I believe the creator Joe lansdale will be thrilled to see how Terrill brought his book to life.
    Sweatting in the triple degree heat was a task in a half for the makeup artist
    Cat and Marcus. But if you wanna be a zombie in this movie you have to be in really good shape. Hope to see y'all at the premiere. Michael blankenship
