Set in Britain in 1979, Mind My Brains, Darling! follows the ups and downs of family life with the Worthingtons – a typical family with a mum, dad, two kids and a grandfather. Typical that is, for a peri-apocalyptic society ravaged by war and zombies for the past 4 years. Oh, and the dad is a Zombie.
Indie Intertube recently unveiled the nominees for their 2nd Annual Awards, and we were thrilled to receive three nominations! In addition to getting through to the final round of the Audience Choice Awards thanks to the amazingly dedicated voting by some wonderful people, we also received the following nominations:
Best Sidekick: Paul Higgins and Edward Higgins as Jeremy Worthington
This is a great award category, and it is fantastic to see that Jeremy really made an impression. We used the BodyLine filming technique so both Paul and Edward could play the part of Jeremy, depending on what was needed for the scene. They also both shared the part of The Colonel/Granddad, something many people were surprised to find out Congratulations to both of you!
Best Set Design
After all the work we put into the set design – and the fact that so many people thought that the set was, in fact, our house! – it is a real thrill to be nominated in this category. We are up against some really tough competition, so fingers crossed.
It was also our great pleasure to help with the Nominations video by announcing the Best Drama category nominees, and you can watch the whole video here:
Josephine Hoy starred as Dr Feyrer in two episodes of ‘Mind My Brains, Darling!’
We posted Behind The Scenes Part 2 video on our YouTube Channel last night which features Josephine Hoy as Dr Feyrer, and also her moonlighting with some robot arms…. And it also stars the unstoppable Becky, who was absolutely amazing as Scrubber. What a trooper!
