Local stars wanted!

Directors of a short western film titled ‘The Redemption’ are on the look out for a team of locals to assist in the film’s production.

The film is being made on a sheep farm in Bendemeer this April with former Quirindi and Tamworth local, Pete Cameron, as the director.

“I chose Bendemeer because I grew up on a farm out this way and instantly thought it would be the best backdrop for my western,” told Pete.

“We are looking for locals with some level of experience to help with production including filming, art, makeup and even still photography.”

The short film will be a 10-minute duration with production expected to be completed over three days just after Easter and excitingly is expected to be featured in international and national film festivals.

Although there are no performing roles for locals in ‘The Redemption’, there will be opportunities later in the year with Pete and his crew back in the region filming a vampire feature film in Tamworth.

“This is almost a trial run for the filming of the feature film we will be doing mid-year here in Tamworth.

“Because it is about vampires there will be plenty more roles for locals to get involved in, so this current short film production is essentially to start scouting for that local talent to get involved.”
