Pre Production "Dawn"

This post is really only for those I've spoken to about the next MC project.


Here's what I'm going for.

1. ZOMBIES of course.
A hoarde of Zombies. I'll be doing a casting call for like 30 or so people, with the typical Zombie necessities like body parts falling off, blood spilling out of mouths, Zombies chewing on body parts, etc.

I'd love to shoot a scene equivalent to that of Day Of The Dead, where we see a ton of Zombie hands reaching out for a victim.

And plenty of head explosions. I'll actually settle for 2 or 3 head explosions. I've always loved the head explosions in the original Dawn Of The Dead. Savini Rocks!

My favorite character from RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD, and by far one of the creppiest zombies ever. To me the quintissential zombie. I'd love to see two or three of em. But if we make one, I can multiply him in post production. Tall, creepy, lanky, scary, gotta love em. I believe Will Stine is attempting this project. God speed Will Stine.

Something a bit different from the last Werewolf we shot. I definitely want to show how we take on different types of Werewolves. So this time around, something much bulkier, and TALL, almost gigantic. Like in The Howling. Unfortunately I couldn't find a pic from the Howling. But the Dog Soldiers werewolf is about the same height.

But something that resembles the look from Werewolf the TV series.

In the Werewolf scene there is a victim that is torn in half but still alive. But I've got that covered.

The plot requires us to breach a creepy house going after a master vampire before the sun comes up. And what is a Master Vampire without his 3 Brides. A staple in every Vamp story, especially when dealing with Dracula.

I do prefer the look of the 3 girls in Monster Squad. Love the way they died.

There will be a bit of a spin on these girls in my version. This just requires the proper casting. Got 1 lined up, have yet to ask the other two, but I am confident they'd do it. So this is basically covered. But I do need to come up with the costuming for the girls, three white dresses, I'd even be ok if they were in Bridal wear.

From the original F.W. Murnau of course, but I do prefer the look of Barlow from 1979's Salem's Lot. This is the Master Vampire. Tall and Creepy. Probably put him on stilts, but make his arms and hands of equal proportion.

6. This guy.

If we can make this guy happen. That would fuckin rock.

Other things I'm looking for (at the moment):

A Coffin.
A Fog Machine.
A Creepy house.
In Door Locations.
Empty Building.
Knives, Blades.
More Prop Guns.
Tac Gear.
A location with plenty of computers.
An interrogation room.

This list will get bigger. Full Cast list to come.
