I’m excited about it. It’s actually my friend’s movie, but I’m always involved.
Dead of Winter will be shot in black and white. With the winter season approaching, the atmosphere will give off a sense of hopelessness that we’ll need in order to keep the mood of the film. Nothing will be alive.
The only thing I know so far is that there will only be a handful of survivors. In the opening scene, the group will already be running away from the hoard of zombie scrambling after them. The entire movie will take place in the woods. This will convey a sense of being lost and alone. The movie opens up and you’re already in the middle of everything. The movie may not explain in detail how everything happened, but it will definitely hint at the lines between. This will leave the audience to decipher for themselves.
No screenplay has been written yet, as it is not my story…but I will be writing most of the dialogue and maybe just helping here and there.
