Kickstart Lee Hardcastle’s Feature Length Claysplotation ‘SPOOK TRAIN’

If you happen to take a browse through the DN archives, it quickly becomes apparent that animation is one of our favourite forms of filmmaking, and while it’d be hard to choose one method of production ahead of the others, there’s something about the tactile feel of claymation films (not to mention an admiration for […]

DN313: Ghost Burger – Lee Hardcastle

Today we’re joined by the ridiculously prolific filmmaker Lee Hardcastle who in his own understated but ever so true words, ‘makes claymations that are not for children’s eyes‘, the latest of which is Ghost Burger, an excellent sequel to his T is for Toilet segment from the ABCs of Death. Lee joins us for a long overdue chat about his career as a filmmaker and successful YouTube channel producer, and why he’ll never insult his audience with crap filmmaking.

Deader Than Dead

Isaac Ravishankara chills and impresses in equal measure with his otherworldly short Deader Than Dead

Hexis: Tenebris

Halloween may have come to a close yesterday but there was no way I could resist posting Craig Murray’s down right creepy exorcism promo for Hexis’ Tenebris

Happy Meal Horror (with a side of chainsaw)

The last time we found ourselves in the company of one of Rocky Curby’s films, we discovered that in his alternate universe, robots could rise from the grave to extract a very bloody revenge. Now, in time for Hallow’s Eve, he brings us the Maya 3D animated tale of a robot cow searching for its […]

Work Day’s Don’t Get Much Worse Than in Rick Glenn & Niles Heckman’s Sci-Fi Short ‘Supervised’

If you think your working conditions are a little draconian, your boss indifferent as to your well being and the pressure you’re under on the intense side, then console yourself that you don’t work alongside the poor operators in RFID programming laboratory 21 in Rick Glenn and Niles Heckman’s short Supervised. Having found that they […]

Talking Genre Movies, Budgets & Zombie Masturbation with ‘The Battery’ Director Jeremy Gardner

With World War Z ranking as one of highest grossing movies of 2013 and The Walking Dead pulling in over 12 million viewers in its Series 3 finale (which aired earlier this year), the zombie genre shows no signs of disappearing anytime soon. It’s no secret to regular visitors to DN that we’re big fans […]

DN300: The Battery – Jeremy Gardner

The brief description which reads, two former baseball players trying to survive a zombie apocalypse may be serviceable as a short synopsis for Jeremy Gardner’s debut feature The Battery, but it in no way conveys the inventive originality or measured directing assurance which imbues every frame of the film. Thankfully Jeremy is on hand to do that in our interview this week.

Kickstart The Visitant from Nick Peterson & Jon Heder

After the success of their slightly disturbing live-action/animation film Drained, writer/director Nick Peterson once again teams up with actor Jon Heder (taking up the producer role) to start production on their latest short The Visitant. Described as an edge-of-your seat supernatural horror, Peterson’s latest film is the story of a mother who battles to protect […]

Miranda Wolf

I have to admit that I’m more than a little addicted to the strange worlds which are the result of the collaboration between filmmaker Czlowiek Kamera and photographer Nishe. A couple weeks ago we posted their journey into the unknown promo for Tkacz’s Śnienie, which featured a young woman literally searching for herself. Now things […]
