Deliveries Before Dawn

Chris Goulder


Breaking News - Deliveries Before Dawn has just been shortlisted for the British Arrows Branded Content Category!

From Chris Goulder:

"We are working with Parker Dairies to produce a brand ad for them that will be used all year round but with Halloween just around the corner we saw an opportunity to do another piece of work that we could get out there in time for the 31st.

Our short film follows a few key characters (both real employees of Parkers Dairy 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.

We 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 we could dial up the humour and have lines delivered on cue. When we cast we 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."
