SLASHER HOUSE SET REPORT 3


DAY 3
Over the last few weeks we had concepted some designs for the final scene of the movie… obviously shooting wise, as the whole thing is shot out of sequence by now.  What started as a drawing of a character that I never thought was a achievable soon became an insane reality thanks to the epic workings of the rest of the team mainly down to Jonny Raw and Connol Pavey putting in the man hours to build the thing.

But what we have ended up with is something amazingly special that, quite honest, rivals a lot of things I have seen come out of Hollywood this year. Right now we had all the raw ingredients to make the scene that pulls the whole movie together, all we had to do now was shoot it.

THE FINAL CHAPTER

As usual with shooting in Preston, England, the weather is an issue ALL the time. So no sooner had we arrived on set than it started to rain. Luckily as with the previous shoot, the rain last a very short time and although it set us back we were off and shooting only an hour over schedule.

Again there’s difficulty to say too much without spoiling the film on a major level, but lets say that not only did we get to work with one of the best villains that Mycho Team have created so far and of course we had another opportunity to work with the talented Ailona Lukiyanova in what might have been the smoothest shoot I’ve ever been on.

I finally also got to see Red in the iconic costume that I created for her when I first write the movie nearly 5 years ago. It was an emotional time in many ways and looking at the rough cut today, we have created something that will hopefully change the way low budget films are made forever.

Check out the final stills from the movie below.



ONE LAST SCARE

I figured, as it was the end of the week and the last of our set reports from Slasher House that I’d take a moment just to wrap this up. Slasher House was never something I though could be achieved the way it has been, it was written to sell to a studio and yet somehow we have managed to get almost exactly to the original vision that imagined that it really has made me think about a lot of things within the filmmaking process.

I can’t thank EVERYONE who has put their time and effort into this film enough, and, it would never have been possible without every single person putting in 200%. You are all amazing at your crafts and this film could not have been achieved without you.

The film will now be going into heavy post and we should see a version of the film later in the year. In the meantime there is much work to do and many things to take care of. So stay tuned as things are getting less quiet around here all the time and we have some amazing s**t to show you very soon.
