Storyline

An infection which appears to be caused by a bacteria in the water turns out to be more. A fourteen-year-old student, Dannie, feels the real cause is linked to her recurring dreams. When the infection reaches an epidemic level. it becomes clear that this infection not only kills, but restores the body to a minimally functioning state where the infected become the "living-dead". This unique twist on the classic zombie theme, centers around the highly-intuitive Dannie Jacobs and a group of four other middle school students who try to save their friends, their town and themselves in spite of the odds against them. While they are desperately trying to find an answer before it's too late, they meet researcher Sue who may hold the key to the infection and Dannie's dreams. Written by Megan Hagins

An amazing feat for a 12 year-old director

I followed this film from the beginning of its production and once it got released on DVD I ordered a copy straight away. I was just fascinated by director Emily Hagins' dedication and ability to make a full length feature film at the age of 12. Me being the same age and struggling to pull off a similar feat, I was very excited to see the finished product. Having seen it several times now I have mixed feelings about the film; as a young person's efforts it's very impressive, but if you see it expecting a technically traditional film experience, you'll be let down.

Emily did this the good-old home video no budget way. In other words she didn't try to get any big DVX100-esque cameras, etc and just stuck with a small camcorder and no other equipment. Again she's 12 and that's acceptable. So when it really comes down to it it's more or less the kind of quality of a film you'd see friends put on youtube i.e, rough camera work, poor sound quality, etc. When I watched it at 13 years old "I said to myself, I could make that easily!" And I stand by that statement, but here's where Emily is set off from the rest of us. The difference with her is SHE ACTUALLY DID IT. I tried to put together about five indie feature films between the ages of 12 and 14 and all attempts were unsuccessful. And that's what makes Pathogen so impressive. The fact that Emily didn't just screw around and "say" she was gonna make one, and instead she actually worked hard and got it done at twelve is what makes this stand out. Sure the finished product is a highly amateur work at best, technically speaking, but what could have been done better at her age? If I successfully completed one of my films back then it certainly wouldn't have been of better quality. And I think the important thing here is the experience and what she took away from making the film. And it shows her amazing initiative which bodes very well for her future as a filmmaker.

Emily is now hard at work on her second feature, The Retelling and I cannot wait to see it. This time around she's got a crew, the equipment and the same amazing initiative as before and her knowledge of production taken from her experiences with this film. Keep an eye out for Emily Hagins, as she's sure to create wonderful films in the future.
