SEVENTIES ST AUGUSTINE’S IS BACKDROP FOR NEW WELSH-LANGUAGE MOVIE

It was a hot day in Uppercliff Drive Penarth for filming an action sequence

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.

“Turn Over!” : Two cameramen shoot simultaneously on the director’s cue

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.
