My hat's off to all of you operators who worked on Shaun of the Dead! Some great moves and huge scenes done in "1'ers". I especially like his trips out of his house, through the street full of people/zombies/ and back home again. The battle outside his girlfriends was terrific as well. great choices and some very funny moments where the rig is as much a character present in the scene as the actors.

For the rest of you, if you havent' seen this film, yet, take the time to go discover it. You won't be disappointed.

Great work!

Thanks for the kind words; glad you liked the film!

I remember doing the shots you mentioned. The two shots of Simon coming out of his house to go to the shop (before and after the zombies had taken over) were actually done on the very first shoot day, very early on a Sunday morning in North London. We were deparately trying to get the shots in the can before the neighbourhood woke up!

The sequence where Simon rescues his friends armed with a cricket bat was shot a few days later and was tricky because of the need to hide all the "zombie hits" by maintaining the correct angle relative to Simon. The whip pan to the car at the end was two shots with a transition mid-pan.

If you liked the film, it's worth getting a copy of the DVD as it's got some great extras with it.
