Ep 86 How to make an indie horror Sci-Fi with Await Further Instructions director Johnny Kevorkian and producer Jack Tarling

This week Giles Alderson (The Dare) and Christian James (Fanged Up) chat to  director Johnny Kevorkian (The Disappeared) & producer (God’s Own Country) Jack Tarling about creating creatures, reversing footage and camera tricks, marketing your film, keeping audiences engaged when the movie is set in one location and their new sci-fi horror Await Further Instructions.

Johnny Kevorkian, shooting anything he could, and later refining his craft studying film at University. After making a series of ambitious shorts, he directed, cowrote and co-produced his debut Horror feature ‘The Disappeared’ which won him awards and critical acclaim.

 Jack Tarling has produced BAFTA nominated God’s Own Country, London’s Finest and Await Further Instructions. He runs Shudder Films

Await Further Instructions:  It’s Christmas Day and the Milgram family wake to find a mysterious black substance surrounding their house. Something monumental is clearly happening right outside their door, but what exactly – an industrial accident, a terrorist attack, nuclear war? Descending into terrified arguments, they turn on the television, desperate for any information. On screen a message glows ominously:’Stay Indoors and Await Further Instructions’. As the television exerts an evermore sinister grip, their paranoia escalates into bloody carnage.
