Chris Goulder - Deliveries Before Dawn

The short film follows a few key characters (both real employees and Actors) as we see behind the scenes of the Walthamstow dairy and follow the milkmen out on their delivery rounds. It is almost as an aside that these milkmen happen to be vampires, with subtle nods to the horror genre being revealed as the story unfolds.

I chose to use a mixture of actors and real milkmen to keep the film as grounded in the real world as possible but also to make sure I could dial up the humour and have lines delivered on cue. When I cast I found out that one of our cast members had a chequered history with milk resulting in him having his very own milk bottle tattoo, which of course was too good to leave out.
