Dawnrazor entered pre-production in March 2001 and was quite an ambitious project to execute on a limited budget. 
The main screenplay was written by director Marq English with script doctoring by Ritchie Taylor. When we came to casting, we
approached talented actor Matt Wolf to play Cole, in what would be his first collaboration with MEV Films. We had a casting call
for the role of Kara which went to the excellent Joy Tinniswood, who runs Production Company EgoTrip Films with her partner (and our
DOP) Gary Andrews.

The shoot was geared up for action, intrigue and mystery with cameras finally rolling on Monday 16th July 2001 near Gatwick Airport.
The principal photography was scheduled for a six day shoot and was organised by Co-Producer Ritchie Taylor. The first day was an
exhausting one with three set-ups that included a night action shoot for the opening sequence. To say that everyone was incredible is
an understatement and although it was a tough shoot, we all pulled through in the end with some amazing work given. Behind the camera
were a true collection of professionals including Make-up Supervisor Jeanni French (who has gone onto bigger productions), Director of
Photography Gary Andrews, Art Director Rob Martins, 1st AD David Decio and Script Supervisor Sarah Musk.

The last couple of days were devoted to all the crypt scenes and we were lucky enough to have a cellar underneath a hospital in Surrey at our disposal. Since this was crammed with old rubbish, it was impossible to clear everything out and Rob Martins not only made room for shooting, but dressed the set beyond belief to transform it into Kara's Lair.
