No sooner has it begun than it has ended, and Last has completed shooting in Bolton and Leigh. Gemma Deerfield stars as Patricia, the last woman left alive, and Paul Anderton plays Derek, the last man. Paul also wrote and directed the short apocalyptic drama, and will also edit. “It’s been something of a whirlwind, as there was very little preproduction, and the shoot itself was two short days. It was an interesting challenge to act and direct, but I had a lot of help from Gemma and Dave,” Paul says, referring to David Noble, who served as cinematographer on Last.
Last is due to be submitted to international film festivals in February.
