Actual filming has now started for the Blackout Film Project and emotions among the whole crew are running very high indeed. After months of script writing and rewriting, actor casting and an inordinate amount of organisation for the film shootings, the action is now going ahead and so far, everything is going well for the Preston based independent movie.

The Blackout movie will be staged in six different parts and woven together in such a way to create one full movie with intrinsically linked story lines.

Following two days of solid film shooting, the coordinating director Alan Livesey, said “I’m  feeling wonderfully humbled to have spent the last two days filming with such amazing and talented people. I have been reviewing parts of the footage with some of the crew, and it’s looking great!”

This will be a full length feature film about an incident which happens in Preston, involving characters from Preston with a Preston based film crew. Created as a community project for Preston, it affords Preston a status in the independent film industry and it is expected that completion of the six chapters will be sometime in October and should be ready for the premiere in November of this year, 2015.

Over the next four months Blog Preston will continue to follow the film’s progress, crew and most of the filming shoots to bring you updates on what’s happening, details of the actors and important key moments in the making of the film.
