The Big Chill Festival: Thursday 6 - Sunday 9 August 2009
Fast forward nine years; mankind is extinct after a virus is released at the 2012 Olympics and Zombies have takenover the world but, like their human ancestors, they are partial to a party - especially a Summer festival. From Warp Films and Film4 comes I Spit on Your Rave, a 'mockumentary' by director Chris Boyle about the first post-apocalyptic festival, created and curated by fun loving un-dead citizens looking to re-stage events from the 'golden age' of the early 21st century.
Filming took place on Thursday 6 August at this year's Big Chill - giving festival-goers an additional day of festivities. The co-production used thousands of Zombie costumed ticket holders, not to mention vats of make-up, to swell the cast numbers and enter the Guinness Book of World Records for of the "Most Amount of Zombies Captured on Camera".
A short promo of the film was then shown at the end of the festival before being released online, giving people the chance to see whether they made it to the silver screen, or the cutting room floor.
