Further to the news of the launch of the Kickstarter for James Moran and Cat Davies’ short horror comedy Blood Shed, the first casting announcement has been made.
Versatile actor Sally Phillips has signed up to play Helen in the short. A recognisable face from the small and big screen, Sally is famous for her roles in Channel 4 sketch show Smack the Pony, I’m Alan Partridge, and the movies Pride and Prejudice and Zombies as well as all three Bridget Jones films.
Blood Shed Synopsis:
Jack loves a bargain. And he loves sheds. When he buys suspiciously cheap second-hand parts online to build his very own dream shed, he and long-suffering wife Helen find they’ve got more than they bargained for: a killer shed with an appetite for blood. As the body count rises, and the shed’s ferocious appetite grows, Jack is faced with a horrifying dilemma. A comedy horror about a man’s twisted love for his shed… that eats people.
The crowd-funder is well on its way to hitting its target, with almost half the initial goal reached in a week. Check out the Kickstarter page to choose a perk that suits you (there are plenty of chances for signed items, etc.) and gets involved with making a great short film happen.
James Moran is a highly respected writer and director, whose work includes Cockneys vs Zombies and Tower Block, and Cat Davies co-wrote and directed hit short Connie. Together they run Moranic Productions.
