ONE of the region’s best-known beauty spots has for the past three weeks been transformed into a film set.
The 19th century fort on Brean Down has been taken over by filmmakers, who have been battling high winds to shoot a 90-minute-long independent film.
Fulll Firearms, directed by Emily Wardill and produced by City Projects, tells the story of a woman who inherits a fortune from her arms manufacturer father, and then uses it to build a home to house the ghosts of those killed by his company’s weapons.
One of the films producers, Kate Parker said: “We’ve been battling with the elements up here, the winds have been really high at times.
“At some points we haven’t had any power or water either. But we’ve really liked this location, it’s been a very good place to shoot for the film.”
The film crew will finish shooting on Brean Down tomorrow (Fri), before finishing off shooting for the film in London.
