All action for village film-making projects

A new short film made in the Village area will tell the story of Midland hero “Blind Dave” Heeley and how he came to run around the world.

Cofton Hackett film maker Nigel Davey has teamed up with Hopwood directors Ian and Dominic Higgins from Pixel Revolution Films for the project, which has Sir Ranulph Fiennes as its patron.

The film, Seven Days, will feature several local actors and filming is to take place at locations including Alvechurch FC and the Lickey Hills.

Meanwhile, Walk Tall Productions, run by Sheila and Bill Evans of Barnt Green, has several projects in the pipeline.

They recently completed a short film called The Poppy Man, which has been entered into a competition to win film equipment.

In January they will be making a festival short called Dark House, which Sheila says has “satanic undertones”, while a comedy feature film, Naughty Lady dot com, is lined up for the spring.

Read more about all these projects in a future issue of The Village.
