Hunt for 'zombies' gets under way
A search has started in south west Scotland for a pack of "zombies".

People from Dumfries and Galloway have been asked to turn up for an open casting session for a horror film to be shot on location in the region.

The Dead Outside is the first feature-length project by Dumfries-born director Kerry Anne Mullaney.

The session to find actors and extras for the film - to be shot in March - will take place in the Gracefield Arts Centre on Saturday afternoon.

Producers Mothcatcher Films, from Edinburgh, are seeking a number of people for the low-budget project.

They include a boy aged between four and six with "longish" hair and a girl aged between 16 and 22 with long brown hair.

They are also searching for people over the age of 30 to play "mortally-wounded zombies".
