Usually it’s the fine local Victorian architecture which attracts film companies to choose Penarth as a location – but not today.
It was the authentic late-’70s early-’80s look of Uppercliff Drive, Penarth which has led to the street becoming a location for a new Welsh-language feature film being produced by a Cardiff Bay production company.
The film is to be entered in an international competition for short feature films made in the respective native languages of the countries.
There is a full size production unit working on the movie comprising 2 cameramen, an assistant camera operator, a producer, a director, make up , and a props supervisor.The movie may also find its way to the small screen soon and could be aired on S4C.
Two highly trained dogs are likely to steal several scenes in the movie – they’re trained to bark, jump or move on commands – which presumably in this case are in Welsh.
