New DV Work: Loyalty Lies with the Dead – Walking Dead Fan Film

UAT’s Digital Video Program has released its latest epic fan film, this one based on the hit TV series and comic book The Walking Dead. The plot synopsis for “Loyalty Lies with the Dead” is as follows:

Returning home from Los Angeles to Arizona, Noa gets her college friends back together – just as the zombie outbreak reaches Phoenix. Together the five of them must survive the undead and the desert wastes to escape to safety. But is Noa hiding something?

The film was written and directed by student Brett Chapman, and won “Best in Show” at the UAT Student Innovation Project Fair in Summer 2016.
