Your new movie The Third
Day - in a few words, what is it about?
is a short movie based on post-apocalyptic
horror/sci-fi mainstays. The idea was born in a few hours. We bought new
equipment to shoot our first feature film Clara and so we decided to
try it out shooting a short film.
Third Day depicts a very specific a very specific moment that's
usually under-appreciated in zombie movies - so what made you make a short
about exactly this period?
Originally the final scene
was not in included in the script, but when I went over it one a last time I've
decided to include a "zombie easter egg". The final edit with the scene was perfect.
Might even be the first scene of a future feature
What were your sources of
inspiration when writing The
It was mainly inspired by post
apocalyptic films, horror and sci-fi movies like Romero's
28 Days Later, Cloverfield,
10 Cloverfield Lane, Bug, etc
Do talk about your movie's approach
is a mini short film about
epidemic disease. It's a mix of sci-fi, horror and post apocalyptic stuff
but is also a metaphoric short about cospiracy theory. It is also tribute
to one of my favourite directors of all time: George Romero. All horror
world is sad about his loss.
What can you tell us about your overall
directorial approach to your story at hand?
the story in three days (the name of the short is inspired by this). We started shooting the footage two weeks later. We finished it
after 4 hours of work. I post-produced it in a week.
Ramon being the only actor appearing on screen - what made him perfect for
the role? And what was working with him like?
is an amazing actor. We didn't shoot hundred of takes because he worked well
on set and he studied his role before the shoot. His
performance was amazing.
you tell us about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?
spent four hours on the set. We worked hard but there was a calm atmosphere during these hours. A very good team.
$64-question of course, where can The
Third Day be seen?
Now it is in festivals all
around the world. In the future it will be available online or maybe in some
