The Last Bus

The Last Bus (Netflix)

Live action sci-fi series following a group of mismatched students on a school trip who become unlikely heroes when a robot apocalypse zaps away the rest of humanity. Starring Robert Sheehan, Tom Basden and an ensemble cast of young actors.

During a 19 week shoot in 2020 the production team harnessed LED technology and bespoke hydraulic systems in The Bottle Yard’s green screen studio to break new ground in what could be achieved without the need for digital effects. Filming took place on location with Film Office assistance at Bristol’s Redcliffe Caves and The Downs, as well as locations in the wider region including Cheddar Gorge, Brean Leisure Park, Wookey Hole in Somerset and the Eden Project in Cornwall.
