The Story

When we first read ZONE 2, we knew it was THE film for us to make. We are so moved by Lydia's writing; the story is everything we look for in a film -unique characters, a chilling setting, and a compelling, suspenseful, twisted story. It also hits on a cause that we fight for everyday - equal representation in Hollywood for diverse groups on and off-screen. Within ZONE 2, we have a strong character who is disabled, a female protagonist, and we are an all-female filmmaking team. We truly love the project and think it will engage the audience in surprising ways. The diversity of the project and team make it that much more exciting. We are so thrilled to have the opportunity to bring the world of ZONE 2 to life!
