Ten years ago director Edgar Wright teamed up with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost to begin production on what would become one of the most popular zombie films of all-time; “Shaun of the Dead.” In honor of this anniversary, the filmmaker has promised to provide exclusive behind-the-scenes pictures, videos and production schedules every single day for the next month to document the making of a classic!
So on this very day, ten years ago, we began principal photography on ‘Shaun Of The Dead’ in London. To celebrate this we’ve decided to take you through every single day of production over the next month or two. Team Big Talk have gone through personal photos, stills, rushes and continuity photos to give you an unique day by day account of our shoot.
It brings back many many memories and I hope you get a kick out of it too.
Appropriately enough, the first day of the new project includes a number of amazing photos documenting one of the “longest, most complicated” steadicam shots from the very beginning of the film; and that’s just for starters! Simply swing by the official website of Edgar Wright to follow along. There’s sure to be even more exciting new content every day.
And don’t forget that the third and final film in Wright’s “Blood And Ice Cream” trilogy will be released later this year. Not to mention that he directed one of the two thousand one hundred and twenty shots in the brand new Star Trek film… yes, seriously!
