Zombie Workshop Tonight: Learn to Play Undead

We've got some rough looking characters in Miami, no doubt, but this is getting ridiculous. Just days after the details of Zombie Walk 2011 and hours after Cultist brought you an interview with a Zombie comic book artist, we hear more news about flesh eaters in the Magic City. And this news involves you, at least if you have ever dreamed about being one of those popin' and lockin' zombies in Thriller or one of the thousands of living dead extras in the Night of the Living Dead movies. There's a zombie workshop tonight, where industry folks will teach you how to walk and grunt like the undead.

A regular who's who of Miami local creative talent, including the Meza Brothers, Rachel Goodrich, and Amigo the Devil, are getting together to make the movie Play Dead as part of the Borscht Film Festival and they want you to be in it. Or at least your walking corpse.

The best part is that all you have to do is show up at 1932 NW Miami

Court at 7 p.m. tonight. The film team is holding a Zombie Workshop with

stunt crews from J.C.B. Stunts & FX giving you pointers on how to

crawl, drag, fall, and even jump like a dead dude.

If you make the cut it could mean you may get cut at this year's festival. Borscht has some history with the living dead. They filmed a commercial for none other than Ford Auto Company with zombies in it last year.

The Zombie Casting Call/Workshop is tonight at 7 p.m. at 1932 NW Miami Ct., Miami).
