About the NYC Zombie Crawl:
Under the guidance of Ringleader Doug Sakmann, the NYC Zombie Crawl team works to make the zombie experience as genuine as possible through the combination of horrifying SFX make-up and organized events that unite brain-eaters from near and far. Since its inception, Sakmann and his crew have provided make-up and coordinated events for movie, book and video game releases, national touring acts, film productions, and many organized events including semi-annual massive zombie crawls through the wild streets of NYC and Brooklyn.

The NYC Zombie Crawl team has worked extensively in the business of transforming average humans into the living dead, having provided Zombie make-up and coordinated events for such clients as the Walking Dead/AMC, Tribeca Film Festival, NYC Comic Con, The Today Show,  NBC, MTV, Sony Pictures, Bravo TV, Simon & Schuster, SEGA  and Penguin Putnam Publishing to name a few.

Zombie Ringleader – Doug Sakmann

Having been in various states of life and afterlife throughout his film career, being a zombie comes naturally to Doug. After getting killed in Citizen Toxie: The Toxic Avenger 4 and playing the Zombie leader in Mulva: Zombie Ass Kicker, he went on to play an undead killing machine in the Punk Rock Holocaust series. Behind the camera, Sakmann has over 15 years of SPFX experience, having created effects for many feature films as well as live events. Inspired by the Philly Zombie Crawl and a love of all things dead and undead, Sakmann gathers all his ghoulish friends together to take a bloody bite out of the Big Apple!
