This year we are hoping to produce a film based on a script written by Neil O’Neil, one of our members, called ‘Just Another Love Story’.
The planning started at the club a few weeks ago to decide on locations for the filming, roles of responsibility, and finding actors to take the parts. On June 5th we held auditions to find our main characters, Geoff and his mother. Laurent Lucas has been selected to play the part of Geoff, and Jeanie Ellis his mother. Jeanie had to develop a French accent very quickly as Laurent is French, and we were very impressed by how well she did it! More news later on our progress – so watch this space!
Neil has updated his script to include a French background to his story. Now our main character is called Jacques who was born in the Normandy town of Mortain, which happens to be twinned with Blandford in England. By a dint of good luck, Steve will be travelling through Mortain later this month and will try to video driving into it and include a bench with the plaque attached (the plaque for Jacques!).
