I will be touring a Bio-Safety Level-II lab next week along with Director Of Photography Brian Greenway and lead actress Mahalia Greenway for the critical lab scenes in "Walking Apocalypse."
Daniel Ross, President & CEO of TransPharm Pre-Clinical Solutions in Napoleon Township, has graciously offered us the use of his outstanding, state-of-the-art facility for our film.
The right location is vital to the success of a film. TransPharm's facilities are an excellent fit as the fictitious lab "Gen-Tech" in "Walking Apocalypse."
Daniel Ross and his staff were outstanding hosts for my first tour of the facility a few months ago, when I initiated my first location scout.
Several of the most important scenes in the film will be shot at TransPharm, including the discovery of the unique problem that has turned a potentially wonderful process into a doomsday weapon that threatens the entire human species.
TransPharm Preclinical Solutions is a reliable single source provider of a complete array of studies in infectious disease animal models for the antibiotic discovery industry.
TransPharm's outstanding staff includes Director of Research Dr. Santiago R. Lopez, Ph.D., Operations Manager Samantha Ross, CHRS, Contract/Protocol Specialist Marci Peek, MT (ASCP), and Associate Scientist Lisa Lazaroff, AAS, LAT, LVT.
