BTB Film – [Box] Fresh

[Box] Fresh is a parody of youth TV and is pretty much the first short film I ever made. A few friends and I (including Paul Wade and my then-girlfriend-now-wife)  got together in Canterbury and decided to shoot a few sketches that we’d been kicking around. This was the final result and I’m still pretty proud of it. It comes from that awkward time before I realised I needed to keep my own daft face behind the camera rather than in front of it but the blind freerunning skit is still a joke that I’m very pleased to have written.

The movie won us a Best Editor award and led to us going on to make loads of other things, so Box will always hold a special place in my heart.

Friday Film – [Box] Fresh Outtakes

Every Friday we descend into the vaults here at Bunker HQ and dig out one of the many fine (and occasionally not so fine) films that we have produced over the years. Come join us for another instalment of cinematic silliness.

Last week we gave you our teen culture parody, [Box] Fresh. Well, as with any film that’s made in a day and semi improvised, there were a fair number of gags that didn’t go into the final film (some because I’m an actor of questionable talent and some because Paul doesn’t know how to make fake blood that doesn’t look like melted chocolate). Here they are in all their glory.

Friday Film – [Box] Fresh

Every Friday we descend into the vaults here at Bunker HQ and dig out one of the many fine (and occasionally not so fine) films that we have produced over the years. Come join us for another instalment of cinematic silliness.

This week we have a film that brings back some fond memories for me as it’s the first proper short I ever did. It’s also the first film that I made for the 2 Days Laughter/Later festival, an event which has become a major fixture in my film making calender.

[Box] Fresh was a response to the endless stream of trendy, teen culture programming that was spilling onto our screens back in 08. It went on to be nominated for several awards and to win the Best Editor prize, as well as inspiring a wonderfully vitriolic letter and a minor local controversy after a few people misunderstood the blind freerunners joke. The following year we were billed as “Controversial film makers” which pleased me more than I care to admit.

Out takes next week!

Friday Film – Ragnarok Dawn Trailer

Every Friday we descend into the vaults here at Bunker HQ and dig out one of the many fine (and occasionally not so fine) films that we have produced over the years. Come join us for another instalment of cinematic silliness.

This week we have part 1 of a triple helping of Zombie chopping action. Produced for the 2008 Two Days Later festival, this was the first project that Steve and I worked on. The result was conceptually fabulous and logistically terrible.

The film itself is the age of tale of Viking meets Zombie and considering it was made for no money whatsoever, it’s not all that bad. The trailer you see here remains inexplicably popular on youtube (infuriatingly so given how quick it was to put together) and returning to the project tentatively remains close to the top of our ‘to do’ list.

Part 1 of the film itself will be up next week.but for now we invite you to simply enjoy the original in all its Norwegian murdering glory.
