Border Sharks Press Release

Meet Leslie and Frances: border security is their priority. That and Taco Tuesdays. Hunt the Vigan take a darkly comic look at the global trend towards Draconian immigration control.  With Trump on one side of the pond and Brexit on the other: is this the future of our borders?  Either way, it’s got these two immigrants shaking in their non-native boots.

 

Partly inspired by a run-in at border control and their love of 80s nostalgia.

Shooting Border Sharks

After having to postpone the shoot three times, struggling to find a humdrum office space, they fondly nicknamed it “the cursed mermaid shoot.” However, they persevered despite the tightest of tight budgets totaling £0, a multi-roling crew of 2 and one cast member with a mild case of Yellow Fever.
