Our very young AD for our film Shadow of the Missing had never been to America and never had a Twinkie. Everyone knows if there is an apocalypse, people will survive on Twinkie's. Apparently they stay "fresh" for like 50 years. Obviously, I have not been privy to try a 50 year old Twinkie, but its just common knowledge!
So here is Sam teaching Ceri and Dean about Twinkie's. Good ole' American goodness! Quite disappointed by the results... and let me just add this is at 1am the night before we filmed! Bad boiz.
As many of you know, Llanelli Wales has a church on every block. Sadly, last week they lost one of the most beautiful abandoned churches I have ever seen. I can't tell you how this will play into Shadow of the Missing, but we will certainly make sure this gorgeous structure is not forgotten.
Interestingly enough, people in the town of Llanelli reported seeing actual faces in the flames of the fire. The internet went crazy with stories about this. I am posting a few photos I found online. What do you think? Read the article below from Wales Online.
Although we are still getting pick-up shots for Shadow of the Missing, we have already started post-production. Very happy to announce we have a huge talent leading the post production team: Jacob Voelzke. He is one of Hollywood's hottest new directors/editors and we have nabbed him!
Eric (Doc Benson) has found the perfect location in West Virginia to finish filming. Although 90% of this film has been shot in Llanelli Wales, we still need just a few things to make our little film complete.
Filming in Llanelli Wales my latest feature Shadow of the Missing was amazing. We had great support from the community, local businesses and media. The Stradey Park Hotel was exceptional. I had my usual room (The bridal Suite) which we used for all the equipment, meetings and a few "talking heads" shots. If I could have that room everywhere I traveled I would be a very happy girl! Local media was also very helpful. The Wave interviewed us a few times and we appeared in several articles in the South Wales Evening Post and the Llanelli Star.
The cast and crew were fantastic and worked very hard. Ceri Evans, our AD brought on some local crew members who were exceptional. Things went better than I could have imagined.
