So if you're reading this, you must have some idea of who George Romero is, yeah?
Ok, good. So now its time to check out one of the best 'film-in-process' website ever launched on the Internet.
As reported in earlier Eatmybrains news stories, George Romero is busy working away on his new 'zombie' film - Diamond Dead. Already attached are Richard Hartley (composer of Rocky Horror Picture Show) and Ridley Scott's production company, Scott Free, has also climbed aboard.
But what makes this production doubly fascinating is its website at www.diamonddead.com. The website is revealing every step of its production as it goes, with artwork, script examples, details of meetings, storyboard artwork and live chats and discussions. From the words of the webmasters themselves;
"George Romero (Night of the Living Dead) and Richard Hartley (The Rocky Horror Picture Show) are combining forces. And you can be part of it.
Read the script, production notes and personal Diaries
Ask a question to any of the makers
Interact with fans and staff worldwide via the message board

Spread the word via the street teams and win cool prizes plus the opportunity for a walk on role in the movie.

For anyone even vaguely interested in the endlessly complicated machinations of putting together a feature film, let alone a new zombie film from the father of modern zombies, this is an invaluable online resource.
Eatmybrains can only recommend everyone register at the site for competition prizes (including the chance to get a walk-on role in the film) and news of upcoming online discussions by visiting www.diamonddead.com.
