Zombie Killers was filmed between December 1999
and January 2000. It is one of the first student movies made at C.W. Jefferys Collegiate Institute located
Finch Avenue and Sentinel Road.
Zombie Killers was an O.A.C. (grade 13) drama
class exam project by Paul Nguyen. An estimate 100 hours was
spent to shoot, edit and mix the sound for the film. Paul
received a grade of
accepted the C.W. Jefferys Art Award in 2000.
Zombie Killers was shot on a Sony Hi8 Handycam and
fully edited in-camera.
The actors repeated action sequences
several times to mimic the look of multiple camera angles. Paul Nguyen served as the fight
choreographer and it was the first time he worked with actors
and fellow C.W. Jefferys students Faruk Gumus
and Justin Zimmerman. Faruk would later reappear in Stalker
(2001) and Birth Control (2004).
Trivia: Paul skipped his final art exam to mix the sound effects
for Zombie Killers at Peckham Public School. In the
original sound edit, sounds effects by handmade using crumpled paper for bone-crunches and pulling masking tape
for stabbing sounds. Mark Simms makes a guest
appearance as the Bandaged Zombie.
In January 2011, Zombie Killers was remastered in 720p high definition.
