Following the huge success of St. Austell’s Community Play, ‘As Well Be Shot As Be Starved’, Restormel Arts are delighted to announce that the film of the re-enactment of the Bread Riots will be shown at Cornwall Film Festival in November.
Filmmaker Tom Turner of Paramore Productions recorded a video diary of the making of the play, from meetings to auditions, shout outs to the final production, Tom was our fly on the wall. Tom became so much a part of the events that he quietly melted into the background and cast and crew forgot he was there.
Following hours of editing, Tom produced the film of the riots held in St. Austell on Saturday 6th July and recently decided at the very last call for entries to send a copy to Cornwall Film Festival. Restormel Arts Directors, cast and crew have already seen the film and were blown away by Tom’s take on events. Tom will have a raft of support on the day his film is shown in competition for The Delabole Slate Audience Award.
Editing of the performance of the play continues and Tom is hoping to enter next year’s Film Festival with the full length film.
