The makers at Fleet Productions rememberd playing DayZ when it first came out at the tail end of 2013, and ever since they knew they wanted to make a fan film. The hardest part was finding the sweet spot between sticking to the exactness of the in-game universe and adding there own input and creativity, but they are confident that they found a medium that gamers and non-gamers alike will enjoy.
The film depicts the story of 4 survivors who come in contact with one another during an apocalyptic crisis and how they will not only interact with one another, but face the threats of infection and other hostile groups.
This was very much like their experience playing the game in many regards, and they wanted to share the story with you.
