Case Study - Feature Film - Christmas Slay

In February 2014 Kate flew out as special effects Makeup Department Head to film an independently made, 100% Crowd Funded film written by director Steve Davis of Kent Indy Films. Christmas Slay is a unique take on the slash and stalk horror genre of the 1980s.

The location was a remote mountain village in southwestern Bulgaria, near the ski resort of Borovets, 55km from the capital, Sofia. During the day the temperatures reached around 17C but night time temperatures were altogether very different reaching lows of -12C and filming long hours in freezing temperatures in forests and on snow covered mountain slopes was a challenge Kate had not met before.

More filming will take place back in the UK during Spring and Summer 2014 with the film due for release in both the UK and USA after premiering at The Empire, Leicester Square, London and Los Angles, California this coming December.
