A ZOMBIE film made in the borough for just £45 is coming to cinemas and will star some of the area's children and students, writes Andrew McCorkell.

Much of the film, called Colin, which opens on limited release tomorrow, was filmed around Kilburn Park by director Marc Price, 30, a volunteer at Blue Sky/Concrete Canvas Arts in Stafford Road, Kilburn Park.

Mr Price, who edited and wrote the script while working night shifts at a courier company, used students from Kilburn as extras and helpers.

'Colin' is bitten by a zombie, he dies and returns from the dead and the film follows him as he wanders through suburbia in a cadaverous apocalypse.

Marc said: "When we started on Colin it was only ever meant to be a movie shot on a camcorder by a group of friends... and that's exactly what it is. I have no delusions of grandeur and I'm certainly not calling myself a film-maker.

"Of course this is a genre film and I wanted to make a movie first and foremost that zombie fans could enjoy.

"But it was also important not to alienate or exclude an audience unfamiliar with zombie cinema.

"Admittedly the film is rough around the edges and certainly will not appeal to everyone, but we hope that a viewer will engage with the subtleties of our world and connect with Colin on an emotional level.

"Despite limitations with our dated equipment, we needed to do this without bankrupting ourselves, and hopefully used the film as an example of what we could achieve in order to arouse enough interest to find ourselves in the position to be able to make another film."
