The last in this trio of images connected to Ryan Haysom films, this is Mark Vincent playing the character of Darren in Last Days, in which we follow three survivors of a zombie apocalypse through North London. Mark was also in Ryan’s first short, LV16, which is available on YouTube but it’s pretty violent so probably not a good one for work or kids!
Despite the ridiculous amount of deadly violence Ryan throws his way, he’s a very nice guy to work with and is of course blessed with being terribly photogenic. He makes getting attacked by rabid infected test subjects and a plague of the undead look terrifying and sexy.
We were shooting in a park near Highgate station and this was in the mouth of a huge empty brick tunnel that was gated up. There was a lovely strong daylight filtering through trees and ivy dangling from the bricks overhead but to get a decent shutter speed for the detail on this tight shot I had to underexpose and lift at least a stop in Capture NX2, then ran a Dfine filter in Photoshop.
Thanks for reading!
