I finally got an answer from the Director of Photography for the Zombie Runs. We are more than welcome to come and shoot behind the scenes (and pretty much anywhere we want to) of the Zombie Run on the 17th. I know this is short notice but it took forever to get an answer! I would like to check in along with the Zombies at 9AM so we can let the organizers know that we have permission to shoot as a group. The run starts at 11AM but if you are going to be late, let them know that you are with the Group and have permission from Akhil Srivastava. I will also let them know that we might have some latecomers.
I will get an email after the event with a link to send photos to! I doubt that there would be any compensation if they use your photo to promote the event (which is worldwide!) but I'm sure you would get photo credit. Please keep this in mind if you submit your work!
A portion of the proceeds of every zombie run goes to benefit Active Heroes (http://activeheroes.org) This amazing 501(c)(3) serves both veterans and active duty military personnel by providing financial support and community integration.
LET'S GO SHOOT ALL THE ZOMBIES!
If you have any questions or concerns you can email me at [masked]. I check this email a couple of times a day. Or you can go to www.thezombierun.com/locations/seattle for general information.
