Writer/director Scott A. Goldberg recently got back from the
Wampum, PA mines, where George A. Romero’s DAY OF THE DEAD was filmed and where
he lensed additional shots for THE THREE, his genre project featuring DAY stars
Lori Cardille, John Amplas and Anthony Dileo Jr. He sent along a couple of
exclusive new photos and info that you can see below.
Cardille and Amplas star in THE THREE, which we last
reported on here, as Lauren and James Fisher, scientists who lost their son on the Iraq
battlefield who attempt to create non-human soldiers to spare anyone else’s
children from dying in war. For the most recent shoot, “I wanted to get some
sequences shot in the mines that included animatronic puppets and special
effects—created by Cody Ruch [pictured in 2nd photo below], Amy Twidwell and
Mike Houston from the Pittsburgh area. It was a plus to find hungry makeup
artists from the Pittsburgh area whom were big into the horror genre, as well
as fans of DAY OF THE DEAD. I saw Cody’s work after he sent me his website
link, and I was really impressed by his portfolio. Jesse Lafferty, who plays
Lori Cardille’s son in the film, unfortunately couldn’t shave his head due to
another production he was under contract for, so we had a bald cap appliance
made for him.”
Goldberg has been having a blast putting THE THREE before
the camera down in the mines: "There’s something about shooting at an
actual location with a natural surrounding of what has been there for thousands
of years—no lighting crew, just the lights hanging from ceilings and an HD DSLR
camera.” Regarding the latter format, he adds, “It’s weird, because the
moviemaking process has changed. There was no digital or HD at the end of the
last century. Now that we have this equipment and technology at our fingertips,
we have the opportunity to tell amazing stories. With the horror genre, we just
need to understand the aspect of fear and how to bring it out in a serious and
dark film. That’s what the genre sorely needs.”
