Wither on the other hand was shot over a period of 50 days in the late summer. We had more people behind the camera, higher budget and a more complete vision which made the shooting go easier. But on the other hand, we had a lot of makeup and gore effects going on, so it just took a very long time. The main crew was still just us three but with the help of some friends or rented crew certain days throughout the shooting.”
