‘Shaun of the Dead’ Photo-a-day / Shoot Day 42 / June 28th, 2003
The Winchester shoot was a tough one and definitely the trickiest part of the 'Shaun' shoot. It's funny sometimes how the shoot starts to mirror the movie, as the stand off section and Barbara's big death scene were easily the most intense and difficult stretches of the shoot. I remember not being in a great mood during this sequence and perhaps that is why dark clouds gather over the movie in this act. Maybe that even worked for the movie. Every good zombie film has to have a bummer section. It was especially tough for the zombies stuck outside who had ...
‘Shaun of the Dead’ Photo-a-day / Shoot Day 41 / June 27th, 2003
The difference between the schedule and the actual shots done today are a sure sign that we are running behind. Time is running out in the Winchester for 'Shaun' and for me!
‘Shaun of the Dead’ Photo-a-day / Shoot Day 40 / June 26th, 2003
Spare a thought for the zombies at the windows. These extremely patient flesheaters had to be outside the pub for days on end and without them the scene would be nothing. My friend Tim Chipping is one of the zombies halfway through the glass and soon to be shot in the neck. Lovely stuff. The detritus below shows you just what it's like to get locked up in a pub set for weeks. There's a lot of Mini Cheddars there. You will be pleased to know that Hog Lumps make a blink and you'll miss it appearance in 'The World's End'.
‘Shaun of the Dead’ Photo-a-day / Shoot Day 39 / June 25th, 2003
I think the description of the scheduled pages above and the slate below must mean that we are behind. We're still on the death of the zombified bartender. The beast must die soon as there's the rest of the climax to shoot. I do remember the Winchester scene being as intense to shoot as the scene appears in the movie. It's a very strange feeling keeping a siege sequence going and maintaining that mood. As a director you do also feel like you are barricading yourself in the set and not venturing back out into the world. It's quite ...
‘Shaun of the Dead’ Photo-a-day / Shoot Day 38 / June 24th, 2003
Another hard day throwing an elderly bartender into a jukebox. We cast Steve Emerson as John the barman because he was a stuntman but could also act and pull off a formidable zombie. Still seems quite crazy to put a stuntman in his sixties head first through smashing glass. I have continued this idea of casting stuntman and physical performers in small roles with 'The World's End' which feature stunt performers ranging from 15 to 70 years old.
‘Shaun of the Dead’ Photo-a-day / Shoot Day 37 / June 23rd, 2003
Ten years ago today we shot the Queen scene fight which around revolved some quite complicated Steadicam shots operated by Paul Edwards. We had choreographed the scene with both a stunt co-ordinator, Jeff Hewitt Davis and a dance choreography Litza Bixler. We had it completely worked out beat for beat to 'Don't Stop Me Now.' Steve Emerson who plays John the barman is a veteran stuntman with hundreds of credits. One that I only found out about after the fact was that he had already performed a head-into-the-jukebox stunt, in the 1975 John Wayne film 'Brannigan'. In that movie the Duke ...
