    Supplying the IDF Gear for World War Z

    If you haven't seen the trailer yet:



    If you're familiar with Max Brooks' book there is a sequence that takes place in the Gaza Strip with zombie hordes encroaching on the IDF.

    This sequence was filmed in Malta (Gaza is not ideal for that sort of thing right now) and we had a great time providing the costume and gear requirements for all the IDF soliders in the film. Here's a few snapshots from on-set.

    We hope that our involvement will add a little bit more realism to the gear and loadouts of the soldiers in the film. But remember, they're still actors: so don't blame us when they shoot from the hip, never reload, and take 600 yard headshots using their Mepro21s!









    And yes, that dude who was also in Fight Club was there hanging around:

    Cool stuff. It's always nice to get behind the scenes looks at stuff like this.

    We had a pretty good time with it! Have to say its cool to see a movie like this involving any army other than the American Army.

    Here's a few more . . .

    I was in Malta during some of that for a port visit, back in 2011. Neat to see. I was wandering around town and walked past the set. When I see the movie, I'm wondering if I'll be able to recognize the stuff I saw!

    If I recall, it was in the vicinity of Moll iċ-Ċangaturi, correct?

    Awesome. Hadnt heard of the movie before yesterday when I saw the trailer. Immediately noticed the IDF in it and that piqued my interest.

    I like the slower Zombies in Walking Dead. World War Z zombies are way too fast haha.

    I chuckled at your "600 yard shots with a mepro21" haha. Too true, so much "dreaming and fantasy" in military-involving films.

    Very cool to see behind the scenes, though!
