Worked on a film with Taika Waititi (Boy) and Jemaine Clement (flight of the conchords) last week. No biggie. Jemaine kept staring at me in his freaky costume/make-up. Apparently he likes to mess with extras and part-time crew members just for fun haha. He's the man.

I like the vampire zombies or whatever they are. Do you think that's a photo of Jemaine to the left of Taika's mirror?

It does look like that pic could be Jemaine. It looks like they've added more facial hair on top of his own.

I wonder what the significance is of the crew t-shirt too. :hrm:

Clement and Waititi turn talents to a bloodsucking vampire film

Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi have formed a film production company and are producing a low-budget comedy about a group of vampires living in Wellington.

The long-time friends, who worked together on cult hit Eagle V Shark, have just wrapped shooting and are now in the editing process.

"It's very funny, but it's really a film for New Zealanders. Kiwis will get the humour. It is probably more relevant to New Zealanders," Waititi told The Diary.

He said the feature film, using the working title Shadows, was based on a short film the pair directed six years ago called What We Do in the Shadows.

"No one really saw that. Only our families. I think it may have screened at a film festival too."

It's the first time the comedians have directed a feature film together - and both star in it, too. They filmed the comedy in their hometown, Wellington.

"We shot quite a lot of footage ... the editing will take a long time," Waititi said. "The film probably won't be ready for a year."


Clement and Waititi set up Shadow Pictures in July. Both have equal shareholding.

A Flight of the Conchords movie is in the pipeline, too, for Clement. He and FOTC partner Bret McKenzie called time on their hit TV series after its second season in 2009. They toured Australia and New Zealand this year on a homecoming tour

Taika screened a preview of the movie during his presentation at "We Can Create" in Auckland:

From Instagram:
kimmi_that Weekend preview of @taikawaititi upcoming vampire series, looks hilarious!!

...and some clips from his new vampire film shot in Wellington and co-written with Jemaine Clement. The presentation space wasn't very forgiving to the darkly-shot material, but it seemed like his signature mix of cleverness and stupidity, much less polished than BOY. He's self-funding the film and will own it at the end; I got the impression that BOY was a bruising process, and that this is a retreat to safer, more nurturing creative environment.

...Taika Waititi's new film with Jemaine Clement, which has the working title of Shadows and is due to be released in July.

Not a long wait if this happens but Taika has mentioned previously that the film "probably won't be ready for a year" so we'll see.
