Welcome To The World Of Blade Dumber
Blade Dumber is a zero budget homage to the sci fi classic Blade Runner. It is made by volunteers from across the West Midlands and beyond. We hope you enjoy the site please write in the guestbook.
Although initially written as a short sketch in the 90s, the film is now a full length production with each shoot featuring up to five HD cameras, professional light and sound and a talented crew.
The movie is the brain child of film enthusiast, Mark Hevingham, who fell in love with Blade Runner when he saw a sneak preview in the Summer holiday of 1982, as a teenager. The cast is headed by the musician and writer, Tom Bradshaw, and the artist and actor Vicki Walkden. Other parts are played by Joanne Marriott, Steve Evans, Begona Fernandez Martin and Colin Cooper, amongst others.
With principal photography completed in 2013, the process of editing and special FX is already underway and we hope to have the movie released online very shortly .
A Film By Mark Hevingham
Mark Hevingham was born and raised in Birmingham and his hobby is watching - and occasionally making - movies. Bladder Run is the culmination of planning and organisation on his part. As the writer, director and DoP of the film Mark hopes that the finished movie will generate interest and sponsorship for his next - original - project - Girls Vs Ghouls - which is currently at scripting stage, under the talented control of Samantha Montgomery.
Mark's plan with Bladder Run was "To make the very best film we could without spending very much money". Although catering, costumes and other expenses have been incurred it is hoped that the final tally will be under £2500!
Bringing together the talent of seven counties, the film has also created new friendships and working partnerships. Mark adds "If nothing else, I have met some fantastic new people and made a load of new friends. In case I forget to mention you on this site, thank you to everyone who has helped so far especially the "regular extras" without whom...."
