James Nguyen’s Birdemic 3: Sea Eagle has officially started filming

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

Writer/director James Nguyen's 2010 film Birdemic: Shock and Terror (watch it HERE) has many fans. That's not because it's a good movie, but because it's such an awful movie. Its badness has brought viewers a lot of joy over the years, but I've never been able to sit through the whole thing. A sequel called Birdemic 2: The Resurrection (watch that HERE) followed a few years later, and in 2016 Nguyen announced that he was trying to raise the budget for a third and final film in the series.

Now Birdemic 3: Sea Eagle has finally been funded, and Nguyen's Moviehead Pictures has confirmed that filming began last week. The company said, 

Birdemic 3 (is being) filmed using Black Magic Design Pocket Camera 6K Pro that shoots at 6K resolution and its output is Hollywoid 35mm filmlook because it has a 35mm HDR sensor chip. B3 will have the best looking cinematic picture!

Birdemic 3: Sea Eagle will tell the following story: 

A flock of sea eagles attack the coastal town of Santa Cruz, California.  Why did the birds attack?  Who will survive?

The picture may look great, but we probably shouldn't expect the special effects used to bring the killer birds to the screen to be very convincing.
