Day 5 Filming

We filmed this on the morning of September 29th 2012 and the opening scene is set in Eastern Europe. As this is a cash strapped production we arrived at Woodbank Park in Offerton nr Stockport and found a nice little quiet spot in order to shoot our footage - The wide shot which will eventually look like a war torn country was filmed from Werneth Low.

Paul holding on to his weapon
Paul provided all the army gear, plus a plastic kids rifle that was sprayed matt black to look like the real thing - in the final film a few effects will be added to give the illusion.

Grant & Ash - "you look familiar mate"

In this scene i get to play 2 brothers Grant and Ash, the reason behind this was due to the fact we were let down by the actor who was originally to play Grant and we didn't have time to get a replacement. Hence i thought i would stand in and give it a go, after all how hard can it be.

This scene may not be used in the final film but we filmed it as a filler to pad out the storyline.

"Dug in like an alabama tick" - Sean as Mike Logan

Ash & Mike - "do our chins look big in this head gear"
 The reason our four army buddies are in the forest is to scout out a local building thought to contain a huge consignment of cash - Ash wants in so he can clear his debt and he has asked the help of Mac, Grant and Mike, but the plan goes pear shaped when they are compromised.

"who left that banana skin" - Mark does a bit of stunt work

In the above shot -
bullet effects and blood splatter along with sound effects will be added digitally
to create the illusion of Ash being killed.

Sean thinks of his idol Jesse Ventura
 The opening sequence introduces the backgrounds of Mac, Mike, Grant and the sequence then follows into the main story of our thriller about the serial killer, who is loose in the Stockport Area. Ash is just used to add to the story and unfortunately he is taken out in the first 2 minutes.

Paul as Mac Stoddard - "which way is it"
