BUDDING film directors have brought the passion of the county to the big screen for their debut film.

The film has been made by self-funded Canny Pictures – made up of Nick Convery, Den Hewitt and Amy Telford – who are now preparing for the premiere of Mirrorvael in Newcastle next week.

Amy, from Ashington, said: “It has taken two years of hard work, dedication and the time of volunteers to bring it all together.

“With no budget and an ambitious idea, we have produced a pilot episode for a medieval fantasy.

“We filmed in and around the north east, including in Linton, Northumberland, and at the Castle Keep in Newcastle.

“Mirrorvael has already attracted praise and attention from other film makers, even though no one has actually seen the finished product yet.

“During the production of Mirrorvael, we were overwhelmed with the amount of enthusiasm and support from everyone that got involved.

“We are now planning several more productions and are in post-production of first feature film, Making Gods Bleed, a film about superheroes in Newcastle.”

The film tells the story of a force known only as the Silence that is released from its prison, and a group of monks known as The Last Order of the Echo who must band together to prevent the destruction of the Vael.

Amy added: “These are exciting times for us and we hope to make as much noise in the north east film scene as we can.”

The premiere of Mirrorvael will take place on Sunday, April 14, at the Star and Shadow cinema in Newcastle, at 7.30pm.

Tickets are available on the night priced at £5.
