‘Zombie Attack – 911 Call’ takes advantage of the current zombie pop sensation, adding a humorous twist that underscores just how critical on hold music and messaging can be in any scenario where a caller is placed on hold.

“It’s gratifying to see the response this video is getting from organizations like the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts, as well as the more than 60,000+ members of the public who have experienced it virally,” said Bryant Wilson, On Hold Company CEO. “This award is also a real testament to the exceptional talent and creativity of our team, who took the idea from concept to completion almost entirely in-house.”

‘Zombie Attack - 911 Call’ was written, directed and edited by On Hold Company Marketing Director Jonathan Kudabeck, an award-winning film producer, whose work has aired nationally on PBS and screened at numerous festivals including the International Television Festival and New Orleans Film festival.

Tommy Granville, Jr., On Hold Company’s master sound engineer, composed original music and mixed sound for the two-and-a-half-minute video. Granville, a Grammy member, RIAA certified Platinum record producer and film composer, boasts numerous music and film credits and awards.

On Hold Company employees played various zombie roles with local actor Alexander Dafnis cast in the lead and Salem television series make-up artist Heather Beauvais doing make-up.

The video was produced by Clint McCommon and John Chambers and filmed with DSLR cameras in downtown Shreveport by Fairfield Studios.
