After the daytime shoot on Tuesday, which involved ridiculous changes in weather and seating removed from our location, we managed to get through and power on to our next set.
Writing this is difficult as it very hard to say ‘ANYTHING’ with out giving away some major plot twists and turns that will make this film unique. But we’re still all about laying down the clues.
THE NIGHT WE CAME HOME
Shooting in our hometown is a very different experience to shooting in an abandoned prison on the Isle Of Man, in some ways it makes it easier, in the fact that we have some of the comforts of home and we know the place so well and where to pick things up if we somehow forget them etc.
But at the same time it becomes very nerve wracking, as we tend to work around friends and people we know and end up drafting them in to help us.
So Tuesday evening we took on the task of creating a large back-story for RED and as this is one of the most important scenes in the movie. What we did realise, however, was that with the right crew around us, we completely upped our game to a level that on this kind of budget we didn’t think possible.
This meant that the whole shoot took a lot longer than anticipated to stay at the quality mark we’d set and this did put a strain on all involved, and a lot of the crew being our friends this wasn’t ideal. But everyone stepped up to the bar and what we came away with in the early hours of yesterday morning was something that will lift the film to whole new level.
With starring turns from Eleanor James, Lissa Coyne and Subject 7 guitarist Kevin Balshen(standing in for a very important character) we managed to make this final stretch of the movie, the best it could ever be.
We also got to shoot a cameo from our Executive Producers the Kevin and Linda Rawstrone, who without, Slasher House would never have been possible. It was great to get them involved and it meant a lot to us to have them appear in the film.
Also look out for cameos from Lee Djandro and Spike Hesketh (who waited for 9 hours to shoot their appearance in the movie)
So check out the new stills below and get ready for your next instalment of the set report tomorrow.
