SHOT DURING LOCKDOWN
This is part of the Lockdown Movie Project, which film-maker Tim Greene started when he put out a call on social media for actors to join him in shooting a feature film remotely. According to Green, it is possibly the world’s first feature film to be created under lockdown conditions.
Cabin Fever had no crew and used no specialist movie equipment. The script was written in sections, tailored to the locations and props available to the actors. The film was completed within 34 days using cellphones and laptops.
