It’s been a while since we’ve had time to sit down for a bit of a chat. But Carlo and I found a couple of minutes this week to discuss what’s been happening at Tunnel HQ. From the sneak peek screenings of the film to launching pre-orders for the DVD.
On another note:
We’ve had a few questions lately about some articles in the media that have misquoted the production budget for ‘The Tunnel’ at $435,000, which is whole a lot more than the actual budget of $135,000. We are not quite sure how people have reached this figure so we just wanted to make sure it was clear for everyone – straight from the horse’s mouth – all the money to make this film has come from you. So far that means we’ve raised just under $36,000 of our target. It is thanks to our incredibly understanding cast and crew we’ve managed to keep the ball rolling, get the movie finished and will soon be able to put it out for everyone to watch.
Not long now!
Well after a hectic few weeks of little sleep and way too much caffeine we have finished the underground location shoots. Everything went much better than we could have hoped, the cast and crew did an amazing job and the footage is looking awesome. But we still have more to shoot so please keep spreading the word!
Anyway for those of you interested in how The Tunnel team went underground here’s a little overview from Enzo and I – including a few sneak peak shots that I’m pretty sure will make the final movie…
Day 3 of production ended with some improvised scenes at The Rose Hotel – scheduling genius to end the first week of production at the pub last thing on a Friday. Many thanks to the proprietors of this fine establishment for allowing us to shoot there.
Monday week sees the production move into our underground locations – plenty more interesting stuff to come… we’re just getting started!
Director Carlo Ledesma and a slightly frazzled Julian Harvey debrief after Day 2 of shooting early scenes of the script in the office.
