I am currently researching and planning a WAG Screen short film to mark the outbreak of the First World War next year. After much deliberation we have chosen to tell the story of one Lincolnshire war memorial – that of Thimbleby near Horncastle. We have the support of the village and permission and encouragement from the families of the war dead and we will tell the story from the home front. We are working on raising funds for the film at the moment and also looking for cast – in particular two red-haired actors in their early twenties who could pass for brothers – quite a challenge!

Based in Lincoln, Crow’s Eye specialises in Lincolnshire heritage, and earlier this year we caught up with them on a cold and misty day at Goltho Church near Wragby, rehearsing scenes inspired by Fiona Mountain’s novel “Lady of the Butterflies“. Nick and Chris reflected on their work:
The curators of the Film London-supported Black London’s Film Heritage project invite applications from aspiring BAME-background film curators for a trainee position being offered as an integral part of this new screen heritage initiative.
