Meet the Coffee Zombie

09 Apr 2019

Meet the Coffee Zombie Image

Born in Southbank, the Coffee Zombie is a character that can’t function without coffee.

Actor Suhasini Seelin created the Youtube mini-series Coffee Zombie with photographer and videographer Wilari Tedjosiswoyo when she was artist in residence at the Boyd Community Hub last year.

Filmed in various locations around Southbank, the fun and quirky mini-series is now preparing for its second season, having launched the first eight-episode season from February 4 to 10.

It is fair to say that there is a little bit of Coffee Zombie in all of us. While largely improvised and unscripted, Suhasini said whether it was dependence or sustainability, every episode had a little meaning of its own.

“It’s highlighting our current life and I feel like we’ve become so dependent,” she said. “You can even stretch the metaphor to technology and it seems like we always need something to keep us going. Can we take ourselves out of it?”

The Coffee Zombie is also a waste warrior, according to Susahini. Keep cups feature heavily in the series, with different brands said to feature prominently in season two.

To watch season one search ‘Coffee Zombie’ on YouTube or follow @coffeezombie.melbourne on Instagram.
