Behind the scenes of horror The Great Spielron. Or how to try and put a film together in 3 weeks.


Hi everyone.

We decided to do a behind the scenes commentary on The Great Spielron. In this video Stuart carpenter (producer) and Peter Butler which is me (Director) talk through the video and try to cover as much behind the scenes bits as we can.

This is mainly coming from an Indie film perspective so all the issues we had in trying to create a film on no budget and in such a short space of time.

We tried to cover as much as we could regarding some of the issues we had in making the film, as well some of the fun bits. There was so much we could have talked about that it was easy to miss bits. But than that’s what’s great about having the blog as I can add all the things we forget here 🙂

One area we didn’t mention much of was the foley and music so I will try and cover that in a later blog.

For now I hope you enjoy our making of video. If there any questions please feel free to email or comment below.

Till next time,


We haven’t been ignoring you!!!

Oh my god! Where has 4 days gone… I remember waking up on Sunday morning and now I find myself here and I am pretty sure something happened in between but it is all a blur.

We started filming for the 22 Days Later project early Sunday morning, have had wonderful people involved, terrific talent (actors) and learned loads… most of all…. Peter should think through his ideas before actually opening his mouth! All joking apart it has been an amazing journey for Peter and myself and I hope it has been just as much fun for everyone involved.

We have come to learn that although we have let go of certain roles and responsibilities and put them in the hands of others, who are doing a great job by the way, we are still taking on too much. It is OK that the hobby is becoming an obsession, however we haven’t got time for the obsession and there is still so much more which needs to be done… like letting our readers know what we are up to.

There has been some great moments over the last few days, lot’s of laughs, chuckles, screams and strange looks from people as they stroll past with their dogs! We will try and keep you up to date with news as it develops but the words bit, more and chew keep springing to mind. The film will be released on before midnight GMT 7th October.

A few more scenes to film… sound fx to record, post production to be done!


More to come… keep following the blog for updates!

Thanks for reading!
