A geeky, shy and terminally ill teen rises from utter insignificance to become a Zombie Assassin and mankind’s last hope for survival.

The film follows 19-year-old engineering prodigy Josh Hershberg, an overweight, introverted and terminally ill gamer kid who has given up hope that he matters to the world. As Josh contemplates what future, if any, is worth looking forward to, a zombie apocalypse breaks out and quickly ravages the planet.

Josh suffers from a rare form of brain cancer. For some reason, this tricks the zombies into sensing he’s already dead and they simply ignore him. As the world crumbles around him, Josh takes advantage of his condition. He utilizes his engineering expertise to craft ridiculously powerful weapons to obliterate the undead and save the rest of humanity.

Think of Josh as a cross between Leonardo da Vinci and 'Lardass' from Stand By Me.Think of Josh as a cross between Leonardo da Vinci and ‘Lardass’ from Stand By Me.

Unlike most films, Josh isn’t asked to change who he is. He’s the same shy, geek-culture lover he’s always been. He’s just like so many of us; a good person who tries hard, but has never been given the platform to succeed. But, since the world is flipped upside down, he now possesses ‘God Mode’ and is the most powerful human being on the planet!

THE APOCALYPSE: As a result of unprecedented events, the world’s water supply is vanishing. Luckily, the Mars rover has discovered a massive untapped reservoir under the Red Planet’s surface.

A sample of that liquid is on its way back home to be studied when the rocket carrying the payload crashes while re-entering Earth’s atmosphere. Society quickly learns this water is not our salvation, but instead carries a horrific microbe that infects the population.

It all cracked open one night in Los Angeles, writer Lance Dean startled awake from a disturbing dream. A very very weird dream. So he drew a square from a stale pack of Marlboro Reds and poured three fingers of bourbon into a glass. Then he loaded the typewriter and squeezed the words off like rounds. Bang. Bang. Bang.

Buy Me a Drink Nate, I Promise I’ll Take You Home was the result. The story was published in Caffeine magazine, Los Angeles’ largest alternate literature magazine in the 1990s. Where a diverse cross generation of writers appeared including: Allen Ginsberg, Dave Alvin, and Charles Bukowski. Buy Me a Drink Nate was later published again in the magazine’s anthology Scream When You Burn released by Incommunicado Press in 2000.

Christian Elder shambled into a hole in the wall and met Dean at the end of a bar one afternoon. They burned cigarettes and talked about films and Tom Waits songs. And they drank, of course. This was the origin of the short film based on Dean’s story and later adapted into THE BIG MEET.

Inspired by Humphrey Bogart classics “In a Lonely Place” and “The Big Sleep”, THE BIG MEET is a dark and funny story – A film noir about a hard drinking screenwriter, a blonde, a brunette, and an ex-marine who all collide on one ill-fated night in Los Angeles.

Jessica Mathews (Producer), Christian Elder (Writer/Director), and Lane Carlson (Executive Producer) gathered the resources and assembled a dedicated team of professionals, taking the THE BIG MEET into production in November 2012. They filmed the movie in various locations throughout the City of Los Angeles.
