We have been inspired to support a group of local film makers starting filming their first major film right here in the East Devon area. See the press release below..
A trio of local lads have formed a film production company ‘Primley Road Productions’ after much acclaim for their pilot episode of ‘Clive’ last year. Their first feature film, - The Catch – starts shooting in East Devon and other locations in July this year, and whilst they have been supported with location and studio equipment by MWS Media, a film production company in the Thames Valley, much needed funding is required for hiring locations and more. Rudge Renewables have helped with some sponsorship, but more is needed to bring this home grown comedy to the UK’s film screens.
‘The Catch’ is a character driven, coming-of-age comedy, with a truly original story. Supported by the acclaimed production company, MWS, who are eager to nurture Britain’s next generation of film makers, Rudge Renewables have also been keen to invest in the future of these local talented youngsters who obviously have a planned future in British film writing and production.
