Linton becomes fantasy world for film project
A NORTHUMBERLAND village will be transformed into a fantasy world this weekend as part of a new film project.
Villagers in Linton, near Ashington, will don capes, tunics and armour as they get a starring role in the production.
And it is hoped the finished film will prove you don’t need a Hollywood budget to put together a movie.
The project, called Mirrorvael, is the brainchild of writers Amy Telford, from Ashington, and Nick Convery, from Newbiggin-by-the-Sea.
Tired of waiting for producers to pick up their fantasy drama script, the duo, who studied media together at college, decided to film it for themselves.
With nothing more than a hand-held camcorder and a few friends, they have recruited a top cast of local actors, as well as a wardrobe of period costumes and a full kit of camera equipment.
