The difficulty it takes to create an annual Fine Rolling Media Halloween sketch whilst juggling our regular workload is matched only by our love of creating them. It’s this love of the macabre and the ability to amuse ourselves and build team morale through increasingly ridiculous, and self-deprecating comedy sketches that keep us coming back year after year.
Thankfully, we’re not the only ones that get a kick out of them. It seems our long-term equipment supplier of choice, CineWest, also enjoy an annual laugh at our expense. So much so, it seems, that this year they offered to supply us with anything we needed to make our latest surreal, horror-inspired romp a reality.
Can you hear that? The soft jangling of a village milk float. It carries more than milk this year. Our 5th annual Halloween sketch was shot on the Arri Alexa Mini with anamorphic lenses. Gear supplied by CineWest. Actor’s fees donated to the Marie Curie Hospice, Penarth.
