Darren, a Bachelor with more money than manners wakes after a one night stand, with a hangover that's anything but ordinary. Having overslept he rushes to clean his flat for dinner with Annie. Uncontrollably vomiting, he envisions a thirst he can't describe. Looking to settle his stomach, he can't take his eyes off the raw steaks. He devours both: it isn't enough. When Annie arrives, he hides. Overcome with blood lust he attacks her, quenching his thirst, being reborn as a creature of the night.

Blod was filmed over the course of four days in a studio apartment in the heart of Manchester. Filmed on the blackmagic ursa Mini pro with a mixed set of vintage prime lenses.
The production team consisted of a producer, who also filmed the BTS, a director/dop, a first AD, camera assistant, sound recordist, a gaffer and one makeup artist. With only three principal cast, this was a very small crew. Sound was recorded on a Zoom F4 with rode NTG2 microphone. The film was shot in 4K and exported to 1080p for YouTube. Lighting was mostly natural, with some small LED panels and Arri 300W fresnels to boost levels and shape the light when necessary. Post production was completed in Manchester by a local editor, who also colour graded and completed the VFX.
