For many years, Bobby Carnevale (BFA 2007 Film and Video) has worked with Sam and Mattie, two best friends with Down Syndrome, to help them create their own zombie film. The finished product, a documentary now available on iTunes and Apple TV+, chronicles how they rallied people from all over Providence, Rhode Island, to help them storyboard, script, produce, cast and star in their own dream movie.
