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!

From Electric Egg:
Production is well underway on a new and exciting piece of experimental moving-image work. The work is being created for the craft exhibition “Beauty is the First Test” curated by Liz Cooper and will soon be exhibited at the National Centre for Craft and Design (NCCD) in Sleaford Lincolnshire.
For anyone with any short films they wish to submit to a competition, the Berwick Short Film Festival is now accepting entries on the theme of North by Northeast — emphasising the (beautiful) city’s links with Northern Europe and the North Sea.
