Your new movie The Third Day - in a few words, what is it about?

 

The Third Day 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.

 

The 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 film.

 

What were your sources of inspiration when writing The Third Day?

 

It was mainly inspired by post apocalyptic films, horror and sci-fi movies like Romero's zombie movies, 28 Days Later, Cloverfield, 10 Cloverfield Lane, Bug, etc

 

Do talk about your movie's approach to horror!

 

The Third Day 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?

 

I wrote 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.

 

With Roberto Ramon being the only actor appearing on screen - what made him perfect for the role? And what was working with him like?

 

Roberto 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.

 

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

 

We spent four hours on the set. We worked hard but there was a calm atmosphere during these hours. A very good team.

 

The $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 horror antology.

 

Anything you can tell us about audience and critical reception of The Third Day yet?

 

Up to now there has been much positive feedback. Now we are officially selected into some festivals. We hope for some good response.

 

Any future projects you'd like to share?
