Actor/director Taika Waititi teamed up with his Eagle vs Shark star Jemaine Clement for this mockumentary about life in a flat of vampires. Cameras follow as the vamps struggle to get into Wellington pubs, fight over chores and squabble with werewolves. A roster of Kiwi talent (including lazy vampire Jonathan and Jackie van Beek) feature. After winning fangtastic reviews at America's Sundance and South by Southwest festivals, Shadows won a run of global sales and four Moa awards, including Best Self-Funded Feature. It also spawned two TV shows and a live show.
