Friday Film – Ragnarok Dawn Part 2

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.

First came the trailer, then part 1 and now at last we come to the end of our little zombie adventure…and there’s actually zombies this week! The second half our our ambitious short film comes complete with some really cool fight choreography from Mr Paul O’Shea, some rather dodgy hair acting from me and a bit of religious imagery that is about as subtle as David Bowie’s trousers. The things we do when we are young! Enjoy!

Click here for part 2

Last week we brought you the trailer to our Vikings vs Zombies short, Ragnarok Dawn. This we we have part 1 of the finished film. It was produced a few years ago for the 2 Days Later film competition and, as per the rules, was written, shot and edited in just 48 hours. As you’d imagine, it’s pretty rough around the edges (the heavens saw fit to furnish us with the only day of glorious sunshine all autumn in order to shoot our dark horror story) and the script could probably do with a little bit a tweaking, but all things considered we’re still pretty proud of it. The amount of goodwill from the massive cast and crew, all of which gave up their time, talent and patience at extremely short notice and for no money whatsoever. It’s people like that who make this very stressful projects worth doing.

Next week, part 2!

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.

Friday Film: The Day The Moon Got Too Close

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.

We have a fair few old film projects to get through over the next few weeks, so I thought it made sense to start with the one responsible for this whole daft endeavour. This is the origin of our beloved Moon. A 90 second film, produced several years ago for some Motorolla competition. The brief was to make a film based on the tagline “The Day The Moon Got Too Close” and after a quick brain storming session with Paul, the cop with a Moon for a head was thrust upon the world. The guy playing this early version of Shades is a buddy of ours from a band called Silvers who are rather wonderful. Apologies for the image quality, it was uploaded back in the days when youtube only liked very small files, there’s a better quality one over on the (infuriatingly hard to embed) vimeo page if you prefer.

It is now my birthday and there is fudge to consume.

-edit- Steve worked out Vimeo embedding so I’ve replaced the Youtube link for the vimeo one. If you’re particularly fond of Youtube then you can find that version of the vid here.
