CRIES of lights, camera, action will soon be heard across Weston.

A well-known actress who has appeared in Hollywood blockbusters including Batman Begins and James Bond's Tomorrow Never Dies is producing a short film in the resort.

Nadia Cameron-Blakey and her co-producer, Sophie Venner, have already visited the town on several location scouting missions.

The film, called Saline, will centre on a love affair between Cat, a 19-year-old goth and Jesus, a charismatic 20-year-old with a 'live-fast-die-young' attitude.

The script has been penned by Jessica Townsend, an award-winning playwright who is also a former journalist.

Nadia said: "Jessica has a real soft spot for Weston as she studied in Bristol and spent many of her holidays as a child and teenager in the town.

"In many ways it was a natural choice for her to want to set the film here. It is incredibly cinematic and quite beautiful in many ways.

"Sophie and I have already been to Weston and we have both been overwhelmed by the generosity of people so willing to help in our project, most especially the town's operatic society."

Beady-eyed residents could spot the plucky producers traipsing around the resort this weekend as they continue their hunt for perfect filming spots.

Cameras will roll into the town from February 27-March 3, but the producers are still looking for accommodation for cast and crew and landlords with empty flats for them to film in.

Anyone who sponsors the film will be included in the credits. For more information contact the team on salineshortfilm@gmail.com
