“We are also looking for behind the scenes help,” said Trujillo.

“Retro of the Dead” is projected to be released in the spring of 2014. It follows the world premier of “Disco of the Dead” last fall in Mitchell Theaters in Liberal and Guymon.

“Retro of the Dead” is another “sequel prequel” and a sequel to “Disco of the Dead.” It is also a prequel to “Eclipse of the Dead.” The entire series also includes “Dusk of the Living Dead” and “Fields of the Living Dead.”

This is Trujillo’s fourth foray into solo movie directing. (He paired with Randy Greenwood on “Dusk” and “Fields.”) “Disco of the Dead” received top ratings with ZMDB, a website geared for zombie movies and fans. “Disco” also sold out a premier showing.

Trujillo has won two Telly Awards, a premier award honoring outstanding local, regional and cable TV commercials and programs, the finest video and film productions, and web commercials, videos and films. Winners represent the best work of the most respected advertising agencies, production companies, television stations, cable operators and corporate video departments in the world.

In “Retro” the nemesis will be played by Mark Espinoza of Elkhart, who was seen at the ending of the credits for “Disco.”.

Returning characters include Kennie Porter (played by D.  Brent McKinley of Elkhart), Samantha Starke (played by Terra Orth of Elkhart), Sgt. Nordrum, (Virgil Gibson of Hardesty) and Mrs. Nordrum (Benita Keneer of Elkhart).

“It is obvious with the returning actors that they do it for the love of film making. All my actors bring fun-loving, creative, great attitudes to the sets. I love working with them all from Virgil Gibson who is trained as an actor and once played a surgeon on the soap opera ‘Guiding Light’ to our youngest actor at age 3,” said Trujillo. “All are welcome to audition and be involved.”
