Watch this: Zombie Girl

Emily Hagins is making a zombie movie. It’s feature-length, it’s bloody, and the zombies don’t run—just like it should be. But there’s just one difference between her film and every other zombie movie you’ve ever seen: Emily is twelve.  ZOMBIE GIRL: THE MOVIE is the documentary that chronicles the making of her film.

Most twelve-year-olds are busy with friends, homework, and online chatting.  So is Emily, but she’s also part of a new generation of teenagers raised on technology and expressing themselves through video.  Only—she’s doing it on a feature-length scale!

With the help of her mother as agent, crew, and biggest fan, Emily launches an epic adventure in genre filmmaking, battling everything from budget shortfalls to self-doubt, all while coming of age as a teenager.  Emily has the vision and her mom has the driver’s license.  Together, their journey is a fascinating look at a growing world of young moviemakers and the bloodiest mother/daughter story you’ve ever seen. 

It’s interesting, neat…and depressing. I was just playing with Barbies and reading voraciously, when I was 12. I think I wanted to be a doctor for the Peace Corps…that was about it.
