Last weekend the crew gathered in London to do the auditions, SFX preparations and rehearsals as well as to visit our set, a professional film site on 50,000 acres of land with dozens of different sets.
With our cast locked down we are sorting out our final crew preparations, now that we have a clearer picture of what we're facing.
Our pilot lasts about 5 minutes with the current storyboard and the set. We're doing principal photography over 1 day on the 30th of September (a Sunday). Transporation will be provided to and from the set. With our meeting point being High Barnet in North London.
This is a great opportunity to gain a gorgeous showreel item, with some great emotional acting, fast paced action and amazing special effects.
If you are interested in applying for 1 of these positions and you have a car and can transport a minimum of 3 people from the cast or crew, this is an added bonus in your favour (all petrol costs to and from the shoot are reimbursed).
The pilot is set in an outdoor location during the day. If you have the equipment and experience to work in such an environment, we'd love to hear from you, not only for working with us on the pilot, but beyond as well.

You'll be handling boom-op duties on set as well as working with our editor to do extensive post production sound editing to create the perfect zombie sounds. We'd love to find someone who is interested in working with us beyond the pilot as well.
