The film represents an output from a National Lottery funded project entitled Zombies Need Houses Too: A Film and Regeneration Project. This study paired BCU staff and students with external filmmakers, local housing residents and Lottery facilitators in order to create a series of films that used zombie film motifs to document social change on an urban housing estate.

The project ran from July 2017 until August 2018, with Mendik acting as lead facilitator, as well as overseeing the creation of the films outputs (the two which he directed/co-directed are presented here for REF review). The study comprised of 3 stages of project activity and evaluation, which drew centrally on theoretical debates around marginal communities in both horror film and urban society, inflecting these debates into short fiction, mock documentary and documentary film formats. Project findings were subsequently disseminated in both National Lottery policy and film festival contexts.
