Grindley Studios, LLC is now casting for “Dayplanner of the Dead”, a ZomCom short, scheduled for shooting in October and early November, 2012. Most locations in Flint; some in Metro-Detroit area. The film is already generating considerable buzz in the Horror Fan community, and is guaranteed to have wide distribution, including a run on Australian TV.

Kyra will be doing a cameo in our film, appearing in zombie makeup on film for the first time in over 30 years. There will be other celebrity cameos as well.
