(WATCH) Jersey Rock Video of the Week: Jeff Crespi “Zombie Rocks”
Ever since George Romero first turned people on to the horrors of the living dead back in 1968, the zombie genre has had a grip on pop culture. Through film, print, television, video games, and even anime, “walkers,” as they are sometimes called, are ever-present on the modern entertainment landscape.
The abundance of media featuring re-animated corpse antagonists makes it hard to produce a work about zombies that comes across as truly original but Jeff Crespi found a way. The well known local Rock photographer had a vision for a new type of zombie film and teamed with D.I.Why Films to make it a reality. “Zombie Rocks” is an apocalyptic love story featuring a seriously imaginative catalyst for an undead apocalypse: a camera. Perhaps it is not just the tool, but rather the photography skills of the wielder, Jeff Crespi, that allows him to become the harbinger or armageddon. Everything he photographs becomes a zombie. It’s an interesting concept that could arguably be adapted into a larger work.
