Over the last couple of months I’ve been searching for possible locations for the movie. It’s a tough request, 1850′s style, mixed with tudor buildings, all with a decaying layer of filth on top.
I’ve explored plenty of places and studied the exploits of others at sites like http://www.28dayslater.co.uk/forums/, and I now have a shortlist of places.
On Sunday me and my Sister were incredibly lucky yesterday to visit a Victorian Baths in Manchester and have a personal tour. We were visiting as part of a project we are filming for a variety of Manchester’s museums.
What’s fantastic about the location and what we should look for in other locations is the multiple locations within one site. We could easily see how at least three locations in the film could be covered by the Baths site.
Okay, next comes the hard part… asking them to let us film there! I’ll keep you posted on our progress.
