Swansea's Zombies!

An acclaimed Swansea film maker is coming home to screen his hit £45 movie and talk to fans.

Marc Price, the director of cult zombie flick Colin, will be giving a special free showing of his movie at the city's Glynn Vivian Gallery on Friday November 27.

The movie, rated 18, was made for just £45 and was praised at the world renowned Cannes Film Festival.

It follows Colin the Zombie as he stumbles around suburbia looking for his next feed and was shot using a handheld camera.

Some of the effects used included grinding pasta shells to recreate the noise of breaking bones, slamming a toolbox against a cupboard to make car crash sounds and mixing golden syrup with red food dye to make fake blood.

A broad daylight zombie versus human street battle and an epic housebound siege are among the scenes in the movie.

Marc shot the film on location in
Swansea and London.

The screening at the Glynn Vivian will be the only one of its kind in the UK and Marc will be on hand from 1pm to discuss the film-making process and to give some background to the idea.

Swansea Council runs the Glynn Vivian Art Gallery.

Cllr Graham Thomas,
Swansea Council's Cabinet Member for Culture, Recreation and Tourism, said: "A huge variety of events and exhibitions is organised at the Glynn Vivian Art Gallery to appeal to all ages and interests and the special screening of this innovative film is sure to attract many fans.

"It will also give aspiring film-makers tips from a director who's been internationally recognised and shows you don't necessarily need to invest a huge amount of money to make a movie.

"It should be a fascinating insight into the film-making process."
