Villages make it onto the big screen
VILLAGES in Comet country were caught on camera last week as they provided the backdrop for a resident’s new film.
Coasters cafe in Knebworth and numerous locations in Aston were used, including a scene featuring 70 extras in the village hall, during last Thursday’s filming for Nobody’s Child, written and directed by Aston’s Sue Shearing.
The Catch Me Films production, which tells the story of a 14-year-old adopted girl searching for her birth mother, features Jonathan Ross’ step-dad Tony Phillips, as well as Hitchin residents Lily Norman, Amellia Brown, Peter Lee-Byrne and Donna Brown.
Speaking after filming Sue, of Garden Field, said: “It was fantastic.
“It has been an exhausting but fun week, with lots of laughs along the way.
“The film will now go into post production, and once edited will be submitted to TV companies and film festivals.
“We also hope to do a local screening so that all those who took part can see it.
