‘Shaun of the Dead’ Photo-a-day / Shoot Day 42 / June 28th, 2003

Screen Shot 2022-06-27 at 15.01.02

The Winchester shoot was a tough one and definitely the trickiest part of the ‘Shaun’ shoot. It’s funny sometimes how the shoot starts to mirror the movie, as the stand off section and Barbara’s big death scene were easily the most intense and difficult stretches of the shoot. I remember not being in a great mood during this sequence and perhaps that is why dark clouds gather over the movie in this act. Maybe that even worked for the movie. Every good zombie film has to have a bummer section.


It was especially tough for the zombies stuck outside who had to bang and moan for 12 hours every day. That’s tough on the arms. It’s no fun being one of the living dead.

    “Not in a great mood”- cue me, Sarah and Amber surrounding you, petting you- “There, there! Let us bring you coffee!”

    I love that you are always so sympathetic toward the zombies. Do you have zombie blood by any chance?

    Serves you right. Penelope Wilton should never die in anything. Its an unwritten law. 😛

    Hopefully it’s gratifying to look back on the amazing finished product and know that all those difficult days were absolutely worthwhile!

    I’m so excited that I’ll be seeing Shaun on the big screen again in a couple of weeks! YEAH BOI!
