Brean Down turned into film production set for new movie

Brean Down Fort has been transformed into a film set over the past month during the production of a 90-minute independent film.

The movie - called Fulll Firearms - 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.

The National Trust, which oversees Brean Down, gave special permission for the filming to go ahead.

Mark Courtiour, National Trust Somerset Countryside Manager, told "We have had a number of film companies who have recognised the wild beauty of Brean Down as the ideal location for their work, but this is the first time we have worked with an artist making a film."

One of the film's producers, Kate Parker, said the team had been battling with the elements in recent days due to the strong winds, but that they had liked the location. Filming finished this weekend.

The film was directed by up and coming artist and film maker Emily Wardill, who is a fomer winner of the prestigious Jarman Prize. Her work has been shown at a number of art galleries, including Tate Britain.

Several films have been produced on Brean Down in recent years, including Elizabeth: The Golden Age in 2006 - see link below.
