Preview: Hecatomb

Recently, I reviewed British director Edward Andrews’ award-winning short, Red Handed.

For his next project, Hecatomb – a dystopian action flick set in the desolate Mexican wastelands of the new world – Ed travelled south of the border to Monterrey. Armed with no budget, no electricity, no toilets, and a wholly unfamiliar cast & crew, it was certainly a shoot to remember…

Check out the film’s facebook page for Ed’s fascinating proof-of-concept production diary, How We Made a Sci-Fi Film in the Mexican Desertand stay tuned to ILT for future updates!

Review: Fury Road

George Miller’s ‘Mad’ Max Rockatansky returns in a tanked up, high-octane beast of a picture, that is not only goddamn marvellous in its own right, but also part catalyst for a dramatic cinematic swing in the right direction…
