Go Behind the Scenes of Monsters with Filmmaker Gareth Edwards
09.02.10 by BJSprecher
British filmmaker Gareth Edwards created his new sci-fi movie, Monsters, on a budget of only $500,000, an amount that is unlikely to even cover the cost of craft services on a typical movie set. With only a sound tech, his two principal actors—
Scoot McNairy and Whitney Able—a producer and a translator, Edwards set out on the road in Central America with one goal: "To make the world’s most realistic monster movie." In this new featurette for Monsters, Edwards offers up a behind-the-scenes look at some of the locations in which the movie was shot and offers up a perfect synopsis of the movie that could become the surprise hit of the year.
It’s a monster movie wrapped inside a love story set in a road movie in a post-apocalyptic world in the middle of Central America.
