We are delighted to let you all know that Simon and Edgar’s zombie extravaganza Shaun of the Dead is now in its sixth week of production. With 3 weeks to go, we are issuing a final call for all you zombie wannabes out there to come and join our legions of the living dead. It is especially urgent that we find some volunteers for Monday 23rd, Tuesday 24th and Wednesday 25th June for filming at Ealing Studios. If you are interested, please contact James on <A href="mailto:zombie_master_40@hotmail.com">zombie_master_40@hotmail.com</a>. Please include your name, contact details, vital statistics, description, age, and phone number.

Many thanks

The Production Team

And there was me and rich feeling extra special because we'd got called up yesterday to be in the final 'exclusive' scenes as James 'king of buttering up' McCavener put it....ooo he's such a little liar!



So come on people, who's with us? if we get a nice big group of us we could go out and have a laugh afterwards or something.



Gail?

Oh I don't know if I'd do that on a first date... I'm ever so shy, y'know.

I might give him an email re: Monday... maybe.
Smart Arse Butler
go on then, see if it bothers me, you do as you like you vicious heartless beast!




what?
Hello kittencat!
Well, if it's a quiet week at work next week...is it okay to just turn up with you Butler? Seeing as you are so tight with the crew, ahem?

Mind, I really should be packing... happy.gif

Yeah, well, I've got the boy wonder Ian trailing behind me like a lovely stupid child already so I think we're going to need you to look after us or we might die or get confused and run off unaided and then what would happen?


I'll have to call James, and you do realise we'll have to dyke it up for the day don't you?
Hello kittencat!
Oh god, dyking it up again! People will talk....probably...

I love the gays, myself.
TheCardinal
I don't like 'em myself. Too poofy for my tastes.

But then I am just a stupid child...
Smart Arse Butler
Ignore that, er, campers....


Ooooo, so, who've we got at the mo?

Me, because I always come first....which is nice for me isn't it?

Anymore?
Pawnstarr
Hmmm wasn't it the 23/24/25th??

Isn't the 25th the Wednesday or am I missing something??
SegaBoy
I'm now confused... what am I meant to be doing?

Is this just me turning up somewhere or do I have to, y'know, do something?

My mind is incapable of anything resembling thoughts at the moment.
icklepickle
I'm only doing 28th sat and 3rd thursday. i could do more but I may regret it cause I'm taking this out of holiday days!!!!

Might ask Sarah though she might do it....

Dan, you have to follow the instructions that Nick said at the begining of this thread, e mail mr zombie master and tell him from you're on the spaced site and maybe say you're a mate of mine and then say you want to be a zombie and I should imagine you'll be fine my love....

See, that's what I need... simple straightforward instructions.

The kind that you'd give to special kids.
Pawnstarr
Woohoo James just called me - I gotta call back to confirm but I'm gonna do Tuesday and Wednesday I think!

Yay! biggrin.gif
scott_dee
Woo-hoo!
Am due to join the legions of undead on Tuesday and Wednesday. I can just see the look on my boss's face when I tell him on Monday I'm taking two days off work to be a zombie... biggrin.gif

I really wish I could do this, how cool would it be?! But alas I can't make it, next week is incredibly hectic. sad.gif

Who else is doing this and when? I'm trying to get as many of us together so we can make everyone feel really self concious because we all know each other and stuff. Come on, you know you want to....

I'll be doing Monday and Tuesday hopefully. It'll be nice to meet some of the people I've been spamming at* wink.gif .

Anyone travelling from South East London (near Dulwich) want to meet up for travelling?

*I really don't do this on purpose, I'm just a lil excitable.
JenerationX
'Raaay! I'll also be lurching along there this Monday and Tuesday. Considering smuggling in a new costume for myself as I'm not really fancying the idea of sitting around in the heat of a studio in the 8 inch thick woollen jacket - the making of which must've seen all the sheep in Wales stripped naked - which was presented to me at the last filming days. huh.gif
Smart Arse Butler
Well, I was in a rather fashionable zip up, new season O Neil which I grew so fond of I nicked it.



So I imagine I'll be punished for that by having to wear shite...

Me!

I live in South Norwood, so I wouldn't mind meeting up!

I've just called James and he's keen on me doing some extra stuff (I think me telling him I've spent all day reading Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix cover-to-cover plus that I could go to as many filming days as he could offer me won it in my favour... wink.gif )

I've just emailed them, dont know if their want me or not.

if they do where is this studio place and how would i get there?? huh.gif

Well I'm a complete newbie here so I don't know anyone, but I'm going on Tuesday and Wednesday... I'd be going Monday but I thought it would at least be polite to tell my boss I'm taking a few days off!

Curiously enough, being a zombie for a day will be arguably more human than my current job as an evil, cold-hearted, bloodsucking government minion! biggrin.gif

Well I just sent an email off , hope to hear a reply happy.gif

Yeah, I was given a Hooch one at one of the other days and considered doing the same. But when I had my photo taken in it by the sneaky keepers of the wardrobe, I thought they might notice it was missing and then I'd get hunted down.

Anyone else travelling from norf London tomorrow fancy meeting at Paddington and getting the train down there together?
JustifiedRevenge
Eyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy


Tomorrow I become the undead happy.gif

Eeeeeyyy!!!

Me me me!

I'll be there Tuesday and Wednesday (assuming there isn't a complete disaster at work in the meantime!) - can't wait!!

What's the deal, do we get told what we're doing on the day or will James let us know.... not sure what to expect!!
Faldor
From what James told me, theres a scene involving a pub (dont get your hopes up its actually in a studio, but hey the SPACED studio had real working Pegg frying toasters...) and their need zombies walking past windows.

probably crowd scenes as well like on the poster.

oh yeah we're also going to stand around doing nout for a bit.

Edit: is anyone coming from Paddington on the Tuesday?
Pawnstarr
Erm I'm having a mild panic now.... can anyone help me?!

Am supposed to be going along tomorrow and wednesday with a couple of pals - confirmed this with James on Friday, but I don't know what time we're supposed to get there or what we need to wear or anything cos James hasn't called me back yet. Keep getting his answer phone!!

Help!

Ok you have to be there for 6am. You don't NEED to be there for that time but cause there are so many other zombies to be made up it takes about 2 hours to do everyone so they try and get you all there as early as poss. The later you get there the further down the make up queue you will be. Make sure you are there before about 9 though.. or you'll miss breakfast! wink.gif

You have to wear neutral colours (lighter ones are good as the blood shows up) but nothing bright, red, no black or white and no logos. Don't worry though they have ready-bloodied costumes there if you can't find anything. If you do wear your own clothes make sure you don't mind getting them a bit stained. the blood comes out but just to be on the safe side...

Hope that helped!

Anyway have fun!!!

EDIT: just remembered, take a toothbrush and some face wipes if you have them. They provide the wipes but there is usually a mad rush and you might want to take a mirror too as they won't let you leave with the make up on. Also take a book or some mags, if you're waiting around it can be really boring! It's fine once you get on set but up till then you need something to do, especially if you're on your own, zombies were playing cards when I was there!
Mizzie
Was a good day today, met up with Marty, had a masterclass on how to walk like a zombie, Simon Pegg just about recognised me and said hello (he was a bit unsure if it was me cos the last time he saw me I didn't have long hair), the lovely people at make-up gave me a lovely cut that looked like a massive love bite and was shackled to a van!

Roll on tomorrow!

happy.gif happy.gif happy.gif
JustifiedRevenge
No make up for me today, Though I am part of the ending in the Pub. The sticky blood and hands on window part happy.gif


Long and tiring day but it was also great. Didn't meet many people from the board( cause some of you were the make up zombies). But I hope to see a few of you tomorrow.


From what I saw of the parts being filmed the film looks very good. And the Zombie Masterclass was a right laugh happy.gif

It was!

Especially the music they used to "get us in the right frame of mind"

biggrin.gif
JustifiedRevenge
lol yeah, though trying to walk like a zombie was actually quite difficult, and having to fall and get up in zombie character was a laugh.


Though at the end of the music I'me sure it was a monkey screaming wacko.gif

Mizzie, how did I miss you today ??

weird wacko.gif

Ahhh cheers for the info.... James did call me in the end (bout 9pm!), I was having a mini panic by then tho - guess he's a very busy chap indeed!!

Nice early start for me cos I got so far to go.... 5am eek! :/

Look forward to meeting some of you chaps!

Getting nervous now.....

Ah!

That's probably why I missed you!

I was with the 2nd unit, you were probably with the 1st.

But you might have seen me if you were in the lunch hall around 2pm, cos I walked through there to get to the Green Room.
Downsy
You didn't ask me where the green room was did you ?? I had a green t-shirt on and a denim jacket
