Juliet Landau, who played Drusilla in TV’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer, is currently looking for people’s money rather than blood to help with a documentary project called A PLACE AMOND THE UNDEAD. As Juliet revealed in an interview with Shock Till You Drop, everything about vampires is included – from 19th century literature, through music, art, video games, comics, young adult fiction, to 21st century Hollywood movies. She and her co-director husband Deverill Weekes are also researching a separate documentary called A PLACE AMONG THE DEAD which will deal with those who take the vampire fantasy too seriously.
The current Indiegogo UNDEAD campaign is to allow for more interviews with those who have played, written about or directed films about vampires. Those already interviewed include Tim Burton (Dark Shadows, Nightmare before Christmas, Ed Wood), Willem Dafoe (Shadow of the Vampire),Gary Oldman (Dracula), Robert Patrick (From Dusk till Dawn TV series),Anne Rice (Interview with the Vampire) and Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel). In these interviews metaphors – such as sex, loss, disease, addiction and the outsider – are explored through the eyes of their creators.
If you are curious about joining the UNDEAD, you have until 26 November to check it out at IndieGoGo.
