Ocean Film Tour

Image
If you find the ocean fascinating, above or below the sea line, this is the event for you. Touring round the UK, the Ocean Film Festival World Tour comes to Cornwall in October, the 9th to the 11th 2019 at the Regal Theatre in Redruth.


Ideal for these more chilly autumn nights, the festival showcases a diverse collection of short films featuring amazing footage of the ocean with fascinating stories to tell. See A Peace Within, a 6 minute short about 'extreme artist' Philip Gray who paints under the surface of the sea, below where the ancient Mayans lived. Surfer Dan follows Dan Schetter as he surfs his local landlocked Michigan - on Lake Superior. Be that in ice, with deadly currents or on actual waves.

Devon & Cornwall's Own Indie Film “Mordred”

Announcing crowdfunding campaign for Devon & Cornwall indiefilm “Mordred”, showcasing local actors and local history /Arthurian legend

“I am what you made me become!” is the tagline of the film, spoken by Mordred. How relevant that seems!

This production aims to not only showcase very heavily researched Dark Ages (6th century) history of Devon and Cornwall, linked to some of the very earliest and less known Arthurian legends, but also equally to showcase the amazing skills by local actors, filmmakers, and other production creatives - a lot of film work happens in the southwest but very often local people are passed over completely for roles, in favour of imported talent due to stereotypes of "local people being no-good". Since there are very few opportunities, we decided to make our own and claw our own way up.

There is a national campaign at the moment for the recognition of working-class actors, who on a national scale, not just locally to us, are often bypassed.

Poldark Second Series has Started Filming

Image
If you missed the BBC's remake of Winston Graham novels, Poldark then where were you? Not only was that acting and story excellent but also the set was pretty great too! Like the first series the second is to be filmed across our beautiful Cornwall, and rumour has it filming started a couple of days ago.



For the first series we saw beautifully lit locations like the rugged Bodmin Moor with Poldark's house being located near St Breward, shots of the historic Charlestown harbour with its tall ships and the coastline of Botallack to Levant dotted with tin mines. Our beautiful beaches like Church Cove and Porthgwarra served as stunning backdrops to dramatic scenes of love and loss.



Keep your eyes peeled and you might just catch a glimpse of Aiden Turner hard at work!
