Actors wanted for heritage film

Pauline Loven

From Pauline Loven, WAG Screen:

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! You can find out more about the project here

Small steps to bigger things hopefully.

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:
