Director Geoff Harmer of multi award winning short Selfie which is still doing the rounds at festivals announces his new short, Dead Air.
Written by award winning Filmmaker Peter Hearn (Scrawl starring Star Wars: The Force Awakens Daisy Ridley) Dead Air follows an all-female punk rock band who end up on a flight with some nasty little creatures at 30000 feet. With only the help of their instruments, a tape recorder, a dodgy crew member and a bottle of piss, the girls try to fend off the evil to get to play their final gig.
The short film is being used as a shop window for the feature film version of Dead Air. This ambitious practical fx heavy short, utilising Labyrinth style puppets and prosthetic monster make up effects is a love letter to the creature features of the 80’s as well as being a goopy blood soaked fun ride.
This concept short aims to convince sales agents, distributors and a host of others that Dead Air is the next horror comedy hit to come out of the UK.
Director of Photography is Tom Allen (Selfie, Glove Compartment), and the film is to be scored by Dan Hall (Scrawl, Angel of Saigon), Dead Air is set to star Stacy Hart (Selfie, Get Real),Charlie Bond (Strippers V Werewolves), Kate Marie Davies (Escape from Cannibal Farm), James Hamer Morton (My Bloody Banjo, The Fitzroy), Johanna Stanton (The Nightmare Box) Dan Palmer (Stalled, My Bloody Banjo), David Schaal (The Inbetweeners, The Fitzroy). Puppet Co-ordinator is renowned puppeteer Andrew James Spooner (Muppets Treasure Island, Furchester Hotel, Gerry Anderson’s Firestorm)
Dead Air will also have a Special Horror Genre Icon on board who will be announced after the Indiegogo campaign.
Dead Air plans to take a flight into hell with practical puppetry, set aboard a Boeing 737, shooting at Black Hangar Studios in Hampshire, UK in Spring/Summer 2017.
