Play Dead


A zombie apocalypse unites a ragtag pack of dogs in the ruined streets of Miami. Immune to the epidemic, they must stick together to survive in the midst of ferocious undead and human survivors. Sit. Stay. Play dead…

Zombies roam the streets in the days and nights following a horrific new virus which is wreaking havoc in Miami. Pitched gun battles and burning streets provide a backdrop for a ragtag band of dogs who are determined to survive.

We are a group of local filmmakers in Miami commissioned by the Borscht Film Festival ( to write and shoot a short film that tells a unique Miami story. We’ve always been influenced by the roller coaster thrills of a good horror movie and the classic storytelling themes repeated in some of our favorite Disney films. We finally decided to blend those two concepts together, and what came out of it is our most ambitious project to date: Play Dead.
