In the Spring of 2005, writer, producer, director Neil Mandt and cinematographer Marc Carter set out on an around the world journey to film the story about two guys traveling to the famous Full Moon Party in Thailand. All they had was one camera, two wireless microphones, three batteries and a rough story outline. They traveled without a crew, a cast or having scouted any locations, all of this was to be done on the fly.
There weren’t any casting calls along the way, just strangers picked up on the street to either act in a scene or hold the camera as Neil and Marc delivered their improvised lines.

“With all the buzz around the latest Star Trek movie, another star is rumoured to be making a cameo in the JJ Abrams film, due out in 2008. Joining the long list of big name stars who will be making an appearance in what looks set to be the biggest feature film of next year, is everyone’s favourites ogre, Shrek! The giant ogre has become so popular that the makers of the film felt they just couldn’t leave him out. With his slightly odd looks, Shrek will certainly fit into the ‘alien’ environment and will be heading off to a galaxy far, far away on his greatest adventure yet.
Shrek is no stranger to appearing in hit movies with 3 films already under his belt, including ‘Shrek The Third’ which is out now on DVD.
