BEVERLY LANE Week 2 Sneak Peek!
ABOVE: Paula Johnson Tries To Bite Jim O’Rear in BEVERLY LANE.
Week 2 of production is complete on the set of BEVERLY LANE and it’s a picture wrap! (See my previous entry for details and photos from the “Week 1” shooting). This second week of production had less comedy but more bloodshed, as this was zombie killing week! Whoooo Hooooo!

For those who have not read about BEVERLY LANE yet, it’s a wacky horror/comedy that can be described as THE OFFICE meets SHAUN OF THE DEAD. The movie follows the employees of a local scrap metal company as they celebrate the retirement of their longtime boss with a "Coney Island" themed party. Bored and angry, the workers find themselves stuck with clowns, a magician, a mime, and one very sick barbershop singer. Then all hell breaks loose! Stuck between zombies and a sideshow, the workers must learn to survive with each other or die trying.
ABOVE: Zombies try to break in for some lunch!
With most of the dialogue and comedy bits filmed during week 1, it was time for the characters to spring into action during week 2. Between gunfire, explosions, hand-to-hand combat, zombies on fire, and a destroy-and-rescue mission led by clowns, it was another fun-filled shoot.

The cast and crew on this shoot were all incredible and I want to thank them all for making my time on set such a blast. I rarely stopped laughing!
ABOVE: If this is the crew that’s going to save the world, God help us all!
Watch for more info about BEVERLY LANE later this year! Until then, here are a few more photos from week 2!
