TORI AND MATTHEW BUTLER-HART HAVE COMPLETED FILMING THEIR NEW FEATURE DAGR, A FOUND-FOOTAGE HORROR, STARRING MATT BARBER
Production has wrapped in Wales on found-footage horror Dagr, starring Matt Barber of Downton Abbey and Ellie Duckles from Netflix drama The A List.
The feature is directed by Matthew Butler-Hart, who co-wrote and produces the film with Tori-Butler Hart for Fizz and Ginger Films. The duo are known for lockdown sci-fi feature Infinitum: Subject Unknown and supernatural thriller The Isle.
Shot near the Brecon Beacons in South Wales and stars Matt Barber and Ellie Duckles alongside newcomer Riz Moritz as fame-seeking YouTubers posing as caterers. They travel to an 18th century house where a glossy advert for a fashion brand is being shot and plan to steal from the production. But they unwittingly step into a haunted house, plagued by a demonic druid. The cast also includes Tori Butler-Hart, Emma King, Graham Butler, Hattie Chapman and Luca Thompson.
Like Infinitum: Subject Unknown, which was shot during the Covid-19 lockdown, the production has almost entirely been shot using iPhones, with Apple providing equipment to monitor six cameras amongst other kit.
