The NYC Zombie Crawl will be creating zombies for a FREE super-fun, interactive disaster prep workshop! Want to win prizes, the respect of your peers, and the confidence needed to survive an apocalypse? We’ve got a game for that. Run around TriBeCa, dodge the undead, and learn essential survival skills in a high-tech urban adventure. Each player will walk away with supplies for their personal emergency kits plus some ridiculous stories.  Designed for players age 2 – 92. Download the Go Games App and play the game from Noon-3pm on Sat, April 25th! Superhero costumes are encouraged, and if you show up in zombie makeup we may even pull you in to join our team!

If you remember, we did a similar event with the Tribeca Film Festival for the 25th Anniversary of Thriller a few years back. Everyone had so much fun we’re doing it again with Beetle Juice!

Thriller 25th Anniversary Events with the Tribeca Film Festival and Bravo’s – Step It Up and Dance –

The Thriller 25th Anniversary Events with the Tribeca Film Festival and Bravo’s ‘Step It Up and Dance’ were amazing, thanks to Lauren S and Dalzell Productions for hiring NYC Zombie Crawl for the job and being so awesome, as well as everyone at the Today Show and Tribeca for working so well with us!

There was a lot of good press for Tribeca and for Zombies everywhere! NYC Zombie Crawl coordinated a 12 person makeup team and we did all the makeup for the Bravo dancers on the Today Show (in the Saturday Night Live studio) and at the Thriller Screening as well as the Tribeca crowd, all in all we did approx 350 zombies throughout the day and into the night!!

Special thanks to our amazing team; Autumn Eget, Josh Potter, Satoko Ichinose, Damien Leone, Paul Mafuz, Jane Rose, Marissa Masella, Jillian Cosme, Alison Grasso, Karmella Lozina, Tate Steinsiek and Sean Traynor! Also thanks to Andrea MacKay, Jay at WickedFX and James and Halloween Adventure NYC for the help hooking up artists and makeup!
