From the imagination of Darwin film maker Salvatore (Terry) Finocchiaro comes another great locally produced indie short film "Cored".

For those of us who were excited by the long awaited release of Aussie writers Kiah and Tristan Roache-Turner's cult film Wyrmwood in 2015 the opportunity to act in the same genre was like winning a mini lottery.

Staffed by a majority of the same crew who wrapped up post production of 'Once Belonged' late last year there was only seemingly a brief lull before they got to work filming the first scenes of their current post-apocalyptic production.

I remember it was in the early stages of filming 'Once Belonged' when Terry first mentioned he had some ideas for a zombie film that he'd like to bring to life if he ever got the time.  I'm not sure whether it was his noted machine-like drive to create and see projects through to the end that got him up to the first script, or the fact that his announcement had the overwhelming approval and excitement of both cast and crew (eager to put their hands up for a part) to buoy his motivation, but he did it at the same time as directing and producing 'Once Belonged' to completion.

Not quite to script for Zombie hunters Ross (Auki Henry) and Paul (Sauro Lepri)

Well known specialist make-up artist Conni Ditto was a natural choice to bring on board with the crew this year.  Conni's work is used by the emergency services in Darwin when they need to do accident and trauma simulation training, it is gory, accurate, photo-realistic and has fooled many a Facebook friend of those whom she applies the make-up to.

I've read a few feeds of injury volunteers who have posted images of themselves after Conni's procedures who receive alarmed "OMG are you alright?" posts until they explain it's all just pretend.

Perfect make-up skills for Zombie work you'd have to agree.  Not that the Zombie look ventures into the extreme for 'Cored'.  Terry and Conni have purposely toned down the un-dead to a very subtle reflection of the condition afflicted on those who catch this plague and become walking shells of the formerly living.

This of course allows for some interesting insights from the un-dead themselves, but you'll have to watch the film to see what I mean - as a guy who hates spoilers I'm not about to drop one on the readers ... no way!

As a side-note; those of you motor sports fans who drop by my site would be interested to know that our multi-talented HighRPM UAV pilot; part time radio presenter, speedway caller and Top End Comedy stand-up guy Brad Stott is acting opposite me on this production.

Perhaps it is because Terry moonlights as a camera operator with us at the big motor sport events and he sees us in 'the mode' (a bit rough and ready with a focus on action but not too much stress)  that he thought of  casting us both along with Sauro Lepri as a ragtag bunch of zombie hunters.  It could also just be that we come across as a bunch of lightly red-necked simpletons too of course, but I like to cling to the thought that it is the former that was the clincher for our parts.

Either way we, and the rest of the cast, are all just thrilled to be a part of Terry's creative process, which is as fascinating to watch as the films themselves.
