Bringing the theatre back to the North Norfolk coast
Back when Wells-next-the-Sea was a thriving trading port in the 18th Century the town was on the circuit for the touring players of the Fisher family. They even built their own theatre here - one of 12 David Fisher built in East Anglia. His theatre burnt down but in the last century, The Wells Centre flourished in the empty Maltings, bringing the likes of Theatre de Complicite and Hull Truck to the town. When that faded, a group of local enthusiasts took up the baton and have now secured seed funding for a total refurbishment and expansion of the facilities.
Although the film was my concept I did have help with the Vox Pops and the drone shots were provided by David McArthur. The good people of Wells also contributed - the Local History Society kindly lent me the use of the old photos of Wells.
The budget for the film was £3k.
Fantastic Jeremy - no comments. All perfect as far as I'm concerned. I really, really like it and the two extra talking heads are perfect.

Dear Jeremy, thanks for showing it to me - it's nice to be part of it and it's a clever little film.
