About The Film

Dead Weight is an independent film produced in central Wisconsin throughout the course of 2011, and released in March 2012. It tells the story of Charlie Russell, traveling the wilderness in the wake of an apocalyptic viral outbreak, in search of his girlfriend, Samantha. As his journey brings him closer to his destination of Wausau, WI, he must face physical exhaustion, malicious survivors, and perhaps most menacing, his own emotional burdens. With his newfound traveling companions Charlie must attempt to find attempt to break his obsessions with the past. He must learn to let it go.

We can hardly believe the time has come to make this official announcement. This is, without a doubt, one of the most humbling pieces of news the Dead Weight family has been honored with receiving. We could not be more proud of our work together, and this achievement.

Dead Weight has been selected to screen at the Milwaukee Film Festival.

Many have been asking for a Milwaukee screening, here it is. This screening will sell out. Tons of Dead Weight cast & crew members will be there. It's going to be a once in a lifetime evening for us and, we hope, all who share it with us. Please, do whatever you can to attend. Stay tuned to Milwaukee Film for updates and schedule. We've spent months traveling around the US to take DW everywhere we can. In September, we bring it back home.

Official announcement can be found here.

September 29th. 7pm. Oriental Theater. Be there.
