My friends at Warehouse 1904 Productions have been hard at work on their film Delta Zulu.
What’s the premise you ask? After an apocalyptic event that leaves humanity near ruins, there’s a threat that still lingers in areas that are quarantined off. In these areas, private military companies carry out missions for profit. A freelance reporter named Clark follows a group of mercenaries known as White Shield International to document their efforts and their side of the story.
On October 9th and 10th I had the pleasure of joining Warehouse 1904 to shoot scenes for Delta Zulu. In a caravan we headed down to Campo where we were scheduled to film.
The area we shot in Campo left me giddy. Along the desert were abandoned buildings that were falling apart; some were overtaken by overgrowth, others were crumbling away. The paths were jagged; it was not friendly; it looked like a deserted town, and we were the only people there.
We diligently filmed throughout the day and once it was night, we carried on shooting. There was such a stark contrast between a sunny, hot day in Campo to how quickly nightfall came with the cold weather. Nevertheless, our minds were on business and got the shots we wanted.
My second day with Warehouse 1904 wasn’t as intense, but it was still just as productive. With the cast in military gear, we loaded up the vehicles and hit the road to film guerrilla style. The caravan of jeeps stuck to a strict route while a fourth vehicle armed with cameras maneuvered around. The actors in the jeep I was in broke out in song a few times when we weren’t being filmed; showing how enjoyable it is to shoot with this cast and crew.
Filming officially wrapped for Delta Zulu recently, and it’s now in post production. And for those who have yet to see the trailer: watch it right now!
