Sinopsis: Two former baseball players, Ben (Jeremy Gardner) and Mickey (Adam Cronheim), cut an aimless path across a desolate New England. They stick to the back roads and forests to steer clear of the shambling corpses that patrol the once bustling cities and towns. In order to survive, they must overcome the stark differences in each other’s personalities—Ben embraces an increasingly feral, lawless, and nomadic lifestyle—while Mickey is unable to accept the harsh realities of the new world.
Bio: Jeremy Gardner wrote the screenplay for “The Battery” based on an audition tape he made for a horror film casting contest. Two years of rewrites and fundraising attempts later, he asked ten of his friends for six hundred dollars apiece in exchange for a stake in the finished film. In August of 2011, with six thousand dollars and a cast and crew of five, he shot the movie in two weeks in the woods of northern Connecticut. “The Battery” is his first feature film.
