Back in 2014, the Wellington Vampire Society and the Lower Hutt Vampires and Witches Club granted safe passage for a documentary crew to film a small group of its members. The result was What We Do in The Shadows.

Earlier this year, Wellington-based film-making outfit Second Unit Productions attended a meeting of this secretive society. Protected by crucifixes and a single mortal sacrifice, the film crew escaped with what they came for: permission to film again.

Filming runs on the Wellington Waterfront set until 30 June. But there's a hitch ... Second Unit Productions still needs hundreds of warm-blooded bodies to complete the shoot. And that's where you come in. No previous experience is required – all you need is a pulse!
