Last year we started a new and extremely ambitious project called Dead Walkers - here and here - and from the start we were thrown a number of challenges.
Location was the number one issue - we couldn't even begin if we didn't have a location!
The location is a deserted trio of buildings - no electricity, no water - no creature comforts at all! Bear that in mind when you realise that we started filming in December - the cold was biting and there was no respite inside the buildings. The only comfort we had from the buildings was shelter from the wind but it's an AWESOME location!
Then we were faced with the problem of needing bodies - lots of bodies (dead and alive, as you'll see in the movie). That problem was solved by our massive network of wonderful contacts - contacts who turned up, brought others and rapidly turned into good friends in swift order! We as a team are blown away by the AWESOME willingness of each and every person who turned up! They came, they shivered and they performed! Then they went home...
Will they be back? Yeah, I bet at least some will come back... I hope!
Oh yes, they came back! They came back prepared and as eager and willing to carry on and do more of the crazy stuff asked of them!
They came back, they brought blankets, flasks, food and blood! Yes, we even had some extra fake blood brought along (good job too! We'd have been short of a few pints if not!)
In short, the cast of Dead Walkers have thrown themselves into the fray with an enthusiasm and vigour that astonishes and astounds me. I am pleased to work with you all, you're bloody marvelous!
Oh yeah... the lows... there aren't any!
