Recently, I caught up with British director Edward Andrews to chat about the pre-production phase of his new, Mexico-based sci-fi action flick, Hecatomb, in order to shed some light on what it takes to shoot an independent proof-of-concept overseas.
Check out the full interview in Love Amen Magazine, here, and stay tuned to ILT for future updates!
This week on The Punch Up podcast; the chaps review writer/director Shane Black’s, thoroughly enjoyable, fantastically fresh buddy-action-comedy flick, The Nice Guys (spoiler free), before taking a look back at his fascinating career to date.
There’s also some Star Wars chat as Phill and Nick ventured to see the new making of doc, Elstree 1976, and we look forward to an array of blockbusters set for release this summer, from Independence Day 2 to Finding Dory.
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…
Dir: Edward Andrews
Release Date: TBC (2016)
