The making of… “Day of the Clones”!

Time for another update about our independent filmmaking exploits. Did I say I must update this blog more? I really must update this blog more. 

Our horror movie based on my on screenplay wrapped at the end of April.  “Day of the Clones” is a post-apocalyptic sci-fi horror movie made during the pandemic lockdown in Manchester, England.

The experience was incredible, frustrating, exhilarating, exhausting, hilarious, and brought me to the end of my tether on more than one occasion. We had lots of things go wrong , including a horse that died, a real car crash, loss of locations, terrible weather, and of course the pandemic itself. But we managed to complete our picture and hopefully the results will be unlike anything you’ve seen before. 

We’re editing the picture now after 32 days of filming. This will likely be a looong process as we have special effects to put in. This a much bigger film than our last one,. Just converting the digital camera files into a type that we could actually see on the computer took 2 weeks!

The kind folks at Stage 32 wrote a blog about it here: https://www.stage32.com/blog/How-Not-to-Make-an-Epic-Sci-Fi-Feature-Film

Stay tuned as we have much more news coming very soon about our first feature… the British vampire film “Boy #5”!
