The movie industry is a strange one. Less that 1% of the movies made get over 99% of the attention. Personally I tend to avoid the movies in the theater, big names, big budgets, and big disappointments. I much prefer to play in the world of the indie film maker. These are people who put their heart and soul into the project.
Over the years I have talked to many indie film makers, they all have strange stories, but great products. One person reached such a dire financial situation that to finance the last dash to the finish line he had to sell his car and beloved saxophone.Â The indie world also has its great successes. Through the help of two people I know, Michael Roskamâ€™s Bullhead became an Oscar nominee. The indie film industry is alive and well!
So lets talk about Overtime. Louisville, Kentucky is hardly known as an epicenter of the film world, but that did not stop Brian Cunningham. After three years of hard work, and likely much sacrifice, Overtime is about to hit prime time.
It is billed as a SciFi, Horror, comedy. Well what is not to love about a good Alien Zombie Apocalypse? Actually the story line is cute and unusual:
a hit man trying to escape a horde of zombie aliens to make it home in time for his son’s ninth birthday party.
Lets face it, who could not love this concept?
What surprised me about Overtime was the quality of the end result. The star of the film is former WWE superstar (and TNA Impact star) Al Snow. I have to give high marks to Al. He plays the part in a Steven Seagal style and pulls it off with great effect. The production, photography, and editing team also need to be congratulated. Overtime is packaged every bit as well as the Big Budget movies.
Unfortunately Overtime will not be available for purchase until Jan 1, and we all know that the Zombie Apocalypse is set to happen on December 21 (Something to do with the Mayan calendar).
My advice is to not panic! There is a website for Overtime.
This is the ‘official’ trailer.
Trailers are fine, but I like clips, this one just grabbed my attention. It really has nothing to do with the story, but it is a biting and cynical commentary about our modern world
