Final ‘Shaun of the Dead’ Photo-a-day / Shoot Day 57 / July 16th, 2003

‘Shaun of the Dead’ Photo-a-day / Shoot Day 57 / July 16th, 2003

And so, ten years ago this was the final day of shooting of ‘Shaun Of The Dead’ in Ealing Studios. As you can see from the schedule above and the pictures below it was a full on day of mopping up and I remember racing from set to set shooting all the scenes at Shaun’s house along with shots of the tooling up in the bathroom and zombies breaking through the trapdoor in the Winchester.

It’s exhausting just thinking about it.

I hope that three days away from our last ‘Cornetto’ movie being released in the UK this has been a educational trip down memory lane. It’s certainly brought the shoot back to vivid life in my memory.

Enjoy this last day of photos. You’ve got red on you.

    Loved every minute of this. Next year can you please blog photos to mark the 10 year anniversary of the promo tour for Shaun? There were some brilliant photos on that tour. I wonder if anyone still has the old blogs from the Shaun Squad site?

    I really enjoyed this. Thanks for taking the time to put it together. Shaun of the Dead completely blew my mind when I saw it, and it’s still one of my absolute favorite films. I can’t wait for The World’s End to come to NYC. Hope you can do a Trilogy Screening here.

    This was the perfect day to meet you guys, then! My favourite film wrapping up on this day 10 years ago. And 10 years later I was able to meet you guys and get my beloved Shaun Blu-Ray signed. Thanks to you, Simon, Nick and everyone involved for giving us the first of many great films!

    And thanks for being so patient with all of us at the premiere tonight 🙂

    Thanks so much – all involved – for putting this together over the past few weeks, it’s been a thoroughly insightful and nostalgic experience! 🙂
