A scene from WASTELAND
      Early 2011, after premiering the short comedy Shelf Stackers, director Tom Wadlow wanted to create something bigger and more challenging; Tom wanted to make a feature film. He had an idea to create a Zombie movie in the classic "George Romero" style. He turned to writer Tommy Draper and along with Sophie Black (art department manager) they started to develop ideas and themes to tell the tale of Scott; a lonely survivor battling life in a world infected by Zombies. While our focus was on creating a movie that would entertain, scare and fulfill what is expected of the genre we always knew that we wanted to give the viewer something honest with realistic characters that had real emotions and lived their lives as you would expect.

       The story takes place in the years after the outbreak, after most of mankind has been wiped out. Our focus is to tell the story from Scott’s point of view, not to show the outbreak but to show you his life before, during and after the world changed around him. This way we get a realistic feel for how this global catastrophe affected a regular man, a man who is not a hero but someone who was once living and enjoying his life and falling in love with Beth who he hoped to marry.

     During the development of the screenplay the riots broke out in London and spread to several cities around the UK.  Every day on the news there were images of destruction showing some of the worst aspects of modern society. What followed was public outrage about what was happening but the riots continued to start up every night.

   Once the riots had begun to calm down something else happened; people started coming together and there was a massive turn around, people came together to clean up the destruction, rebuild what was once broken. This was something that was incorporated into Wasteland’s development, to show those emotions of despair as society collapsed but to also give hope, to show that despite the destruction people would become stronger, that humanity could survive.
          The screenplay was crafted until everyone involved with the project was happy that we were making something unique and interesting. A teaser trailer was filmed which was very well received on the internet and gave a good taste of how Wasteland would be.

    In early 2012 filming began with Shameer Seepersand taking the lead role of Scott. Between shooting dates the footage has been edited so director Tom has been able to see the film come together enabling a quicker post-production once principle photography is complete.
