I wrote a first draft for Zombirds' story. Check it out

This is a first draft of the story.

It seemed like a normal vacation when a young couple goes camping at a remote bird sanctuary.
But then the birds go batshit crazy.
The girl's understandably upset, says "This wouldn't have happened on Hawaii."
They find a jeep in a garage and nailguns in an abandoned hardware store.
While fighting birds and driving they continue bickering.
At an abandoned bird research station they find an
ancient manuscript that contains instructions to build a device that makes bird brains explode.
The girl thinks she can reproduce the device's signal using her mad programming skillz.
They drive into the city towards the radio control center to send the signal, bounce it off satellites and cellular radio towers and kill all birds.
While the girl reprogrammes the radio transmission control for the signal, the guy has to defend the radio tower against incoming bird swarms. The Birds seem to know what the couple is up to.
As the swarms close in for the kill, the girl hits the transmit button and the signal goes out. She hurries to the top of the building.
The signal worked.
However, it's to late for the guy as the birds got him. He lies on the roof with bird corpses sticking out of his torso.
As he dies in the arms of the girl he sees the sun rise on the horizon as thousands of birds are falling from the skies.

Now I'll have to work on how best to tell the story.
Something that is immersive, looks good and cost-effective to implement.
I'll have to revise the story depending on what is possible to do.
