Day of the Dead


High Rising Productions work on the following HD content for Arrow Video's release of Day of the Dead.

Joe of the Dead: Acting in a George Romero Classic

This is a 50 minute long sit down chat with the actor Joe Pilato. A Biography Channel style piece, this takes in the performer's career to date, including his unforgettable performance as Captain Rhodes in Day of the Dead.

Travelogue of the Dead: On the Rhodes Again

This is a 17 minute feature on Joe Pilato's trip to Dublin, Edinburgh and Glasgow in October 2009, complete with some fans giving their own thoughts on meeting Captain Rhodes.
