‘STRAIN’ – Unexpected Guest: Part A
Written/directed by Reynier Molenaar
STRAIN follows two survivors of the zombie apocalypse who must travel across ground zero — an abandoned Los Angeles — to deliver important biological samples. BRIDE is a battle-weary and jaded warrior who is tasked with protecting CHRIS, a needy-but-lovable researcher who has never crossed the quarantine zone before.
The scene takes place in an abandoned residential neighborhood, where Bride and Chris have stopped to manage their gear… and realize they’re not alone.
The sequence begins on Page 7 of the script and was filmed at three locations across Los Angeles. As a side note, to bring Bride’s futuristic touchpad to life, I created dozens and dozens of hand-tracked visual effects, representing months of post-production work — all stemming from just two lines in the original screenplay!
