Today’s show: Guerrilla film-making and fleeing Monsters

December 3, 2010

Today on Resonance FM

I’m ready for my close-up – Guerrilla film-making and fleeing Monsters

Scoot McNairy in Monsters

Scoot McNairy in Monsters

In a Q and A recorded live at this year’s Sci-Fi London Oktoberfest, Alex Fitch talks to British director Gareth Edwards about his genre crossing feature film Monsters, which features a photo journalist escorting a spoilt rich girl across Mexico following an alien invasion.
Alex and Gareth discuss the latter’s use of special effects that vary from the obvious – creating bio-luminescent floating giant squid – to the invisible – distressed posters advertising the quarantine zone – and the pros and cons of shooting guerrilla style with a small cast and crew South of the Border.
