Your new movie Acid Pit Stop - in a few words, what is it about?

 

Well it’s a zombie comedy with a few hommages and a different kind of zombie.

The synopsis:

“A rave in a deserted warehouse, the perfect place to introduce a NEW designer drug – right? Two young blokes, alongside two girls picked up en route, quickly discover just how wrong they were. With users turning, blood gushing and body parts flying – will there be anyone left alive amongst the undead?”

 

How did the project fall into being in the first place?

 

Silent Studios Productions always have a lot of projects on the backburner and running in the background. This one came through one of our friends Matteo and we thought, as we say in the industry, it had legs so we took it on as a full film project.

 

With Acid Pit Stop being a zombie film - this is a genre you seem to be always be coming back to ... so why is that, and some of your genre inspirations?

 

We don’t do just zombie films J Our first film Torture has no zombies at all and we have done a lot of work in the horror and sci-fi genre, but everyone loves the zombie films, so we do our fair share J My inspiration comes from my love of horror. I’ve loved horror since I was a kid, with zombie films coming up top; Dawn of the Dead specifically. In fact, there is a hommage to Dawn of the Dead in Acid Pit Stop trailer.

 

What can you tell us about Acid Pit Stop's writer Matteo Valentini, and what was the collaboration like?

 

Matteo approached Silent Studios Productions with a first draft of a film script. Our producer then read it through and said it had legs but needed some work. After some discussions with Matteo a contract was signed and then our producer worked with Matteo to complete the script for Acid Pit Stop that has been turned into the film you will see next year.

 

Zombie movies demand their fair share of blood and guts almost by definiton - so what can you tell us about the gore effects in yours?

 

We spent some time on the gore, as I am a fan of more practical SFX and less VFX where possible. All the make-up artists worked very hard and came up with some great zombie creations you will see throughout the movie. Obviously as with all zom-coms there will be some added blood splatter VFX for comedic effect, but otherwise all the effects you see in the film are practical.

 

Acid Pit Stop is set in the raver subculture - something you're at all familiar with, personally? And of course also the drug culture that comes with it?

 

We were going for the 80’s style rave party, for sure, but in a modern-day setting. However, it was a clever hommage to a certain TV series as well J

 

What can you tell us about your overall directorial approach to your story at hand?

 

As a director you do have to set out with a vision on the end result of the film, which I kept to throughout. Good cast and crew always helps and we did complete the film in less than 4 weeks, so a great job was done by everyone. Communication is what I think is very important on set and of course a great producer and first AD to schedule the film is paramount.

 

Do talk about your key cast, and why exactly these people?

 

As casting director for the film, the team and myself had a lot of discussion about cast. It is important to do auditions or at the very least watch previous performances to understand whether each actor will be perfect for the role. We were very lucky as the main four actors had all worked together in theatre previously so already had a good bond and an excellent rapport which I think shows throughout the film. As a cameo we decided to bring on Bruce Payne as a known actor and someone we believed was perfect for the role of Jacob in the film. I think you will all agree when you see the film we made the right decisions on casting.

 

What can you tell us about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?

 

In terms of shoot atmosphere, I would like to think everyone enjoyed their time on Acid Pit Stop and, for sure, we had some funny moments throughout the filming so expect some good comedy on the film.

 

The $64 question of course, when will Acid Pit Stop be released?

 

The film is due for release in 2019 but there is no specific date as yet as final post-production is still being done but we will be at Cannes this year, so we will update people when we can.
