No posts for a couple of weeks, firstly because we were in Sweden for a week and then because we have been sorting lots of things out and didn’t want to post too early and jeopardise some things.
We are very happy to say that we have a beautiful Manor House to use for the home of John Hemmingway, it is in Shropshire so we are able to keep the local involvement going. The views across Shropshire are incredible and best of all there is very little traffic around so we will not be too disturbed by noise.
Mary has been cast, Emily is a local performer who is perfect for the role, she looks amazing in the costumes of the period. She has already been to our costume fitter for dresses (the incredible Emma at The Looking Glass in Bridgnorth) and tried on some of the genuine Edwardian dresses we shall be using.
We have a strong lead to someone to play George, John Hemmingway’s father. And hope to be in a position to announce this next week.
Meanwhile director Jake is happy to note that a film he acted as First Assistant Director on while at Westminster Film School has been awarded best film at The INDI Awards.
Billy Armitage’s cottage is booked in principle and we are currently sorting out final details and charges but these are not going to be an issue.
Next week will be busy with a week of rehearsals for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe with Jake directing and then we will be only 2 weeks away from shooting… the email airwaves are full of costume size charts and agreements as we move ever closer to filming.
More news soon including some pictures of things as we book them.
Hope everyone is enjoying the magnificent weather, we kind of hope it breaks a bit before we shoot otherwise it’ll all be a bit bright.
