short doc – Black Zombie

I made this short doc, well half doc half promo video for some dudes I just met. Backstory:

Last Saturday I was sitting at a coffee shop with Mairi, and on a whim I sent an introductory email to John Wayland, creator of the fastest ever street legal electric dragster White Zombie, which does 0-60 in 1.8 seconds. Try that.

I’d been following news of White Zombie since 2008, and there hadn’t been any posts for little a while, so I just up and wrote him an email to say hello. He wrote right back. 24 hours later I was in Austin where he and Mitch Medford are converting classic muscle cars to the Zombie 222 electric drive train. I went to the track with them in San Antonio where none of the gas cars could even TOUCH the modified, electric 1968 Fastback. The new car, Black Zombie, is currently running a quarter mile in 12.1 seconds, and does 0-60mph in 3.5 seconds. This is really just beginning for these guys.

If you’d like to support the cause or put yourself in line for a car, visit their Indigogo campaign.
