‘Shaun of the Dead’ Photo-a-day / Shoot Day 6 / May 16th, 2003

Shaun of the Dead Photo-a-day / May 16th, 2003

Um… Spoiler alert. This is the last scene of ‘Shaun Of The Dead’. It’s very strange shooting the coda in the middle of another scene, but that’s exactly what we did here.

Ideally it would be nice to shoot the final shot last but that rarely happens. Usually you have double up on locations on a low budget film.

These photos make me sad for some reason. Needs to have ‘You’re My Best Friend’ playing over it for the full effect.

By the way, the reason ‘You’re My Best Friend’ ended up as the final song in the movie is because it is track listed after ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’ on ‘Queen’s Greatest Hits’. So we would keep hearing that intro whenever we listened to the CD (remember them?).

That opening line, ‘Oooh, you make-a me live’ sealed it. We had to use it.

    The first pic seems to have been taken between shots, but still Zombie Ed/Nick remains in character. Either that or…, … !?

    Brilliant, I always loved the upbeat spin this put on Ed’s death.
