Vietnam War Film

This year is an important year for BSTB Film because I'll be working on my Vietnam war horror film. The idea was conceived way back 2009 but restrictions meant that I couldn't make it and so it was hanging in pre-production limbo for many years. Fortunately a lot has changed since then and I have learned a lot more about film making since starting university. I want 2013 to be the year when I finally start this.

So Vietnam war film made in the UK??? Am I crazy? Yeah probably...It rains 80% of the time and depicting a tropical location would be a great challenge. However, Full Metal Jacket (a war film set in Vietnam) was filmed entirely in the UK. Another less known Vietnam war film called "How Sleep the Brave" was also filmed in the UK. So, I might have a chance.

I'm keeping the plot and title secret right now because I don't want anyone to steal my idea. I am paranoid yes, very paranoid. However, I'm going to blog a lot during production and this will include plenty of pictures and video. Maybe I'll have a trailer up this summer as well and this will finally reveal all.
