Lincoln School of Mediagraduates and some of our students have been on-location to shoot a short called ‘Lancaster’.
It is a period drama about the Lancaster bomber crew on what would turn out to be their final mission across occupied Europe. Graduate Phil Stevens & Red Dog Film was commissioned by East Lindsey District Council to make this film for the Lancaster’s 75th anniversary later this year. The crew are now in the editing stage, and sound post production will take place at the Lincoln Sound Theatre in the School of Media. ‘Lancaster’ is due to premier in June.
LSM’s Senior Lecturer Chris Hainstock said: “The Lancaster film project has just finished four days’ shooting in and around Lincolnshire. Written and directed by some of our graduates, Phil Stevens and Lewis Gemmill. The Director of Photography is another graduate Stewart MacGregor, and Denise Barry was make up/wardrobe.
I have set up a Twitter feed @lancastermovie and also a Facebook page. A big thank you to Tom Mckie (Level 2 media prod student) and Ross McGowan (Level 3 media prod student) who acted as camera assistants and runners for the entire shoot, including the night shoot 5pm to 7am!”
