Movie maker releases suspense thriller shot in Burnham-On-Sea

A new supernatural suspense film that has been shot in the Burnham-On-Sea area has been released by a local freelance movie maker this week.

Burnham-based James Cameron's independent film, The Copse, was launched on DVD on Sunday 29th July.

The film was shot in and around Brent Knoll and Burnham-On-Sea and is a supernatural suspense film that James says is a must-see.

He told "As a photographer, I know how to see what most people see as everyday and mundane in a different way, and I use that skill in my films. The Burnham area has inspired me to create art and I love to film in my home town and show the world what an amazing place it is."

James has been making films for nearly 10 years, making several original short films in that time.

He started out by making fan music videos for online cartoons, video games and favourite films.

His first original short, Snack Attack, was released on YouTube in 2006 and spawned a mix of fan-films, documentaries, reviews and original shorts. He has also collaborated on several films with the successful comic artist James Thompsett and his YouTube videos have received more than 335,000 views.

In 2009, work began on Living With Oblivion, his first major original project which was released on in 2010 and has been commercially successful. Last year saw the release of The Writer's Diet with two actors from America in the cast.

James says: "It's storytelling that is important to me. I make these films for my own pleasure and to tell a story the way I like it. I shared my films with friends and they said I should share them with the world, so I did and found a way to keep making films in the process."

His next project will be The Masquerade: The Brenton Hill Incident, which is due to begin filming in Brent Knoll in January 2013.

James hopes to use his films to inspire others to join the cast and crew of what is set to be his biggest and most ambitious project to date. Aspiring local actors and film makers can get in contact via the website here.
