Why am I writing about Edgar? After I saw Shaun of the dead and hot fuzz I instantly was impressed by the style he shot his movies and how he managed to really emphasis certain pieces of comedy. Edgar’s way of presenting comedy can be extremely subtle which is a rare quality in a director, this is shown in Shaun of the dead which have subtle references to George Romero's zombie films.

His movie making quotes Everything that I've done so far has had a bigger budget than the last, but I've never ever felt the benefit of the bigger budget because the ideas always exceed the budget. I think it's good to have pressure on yourself. The worst crime is to get kind of really complacent.
