Now shooting: James

James slate

Rediscovering the roots of one of our favourite literary characters through the streets of Oxford, James seeks to bring intrigue to a touching human story, reminding us that even our infallible heroes had to start somewhere.

Just three days since the project’s conception, Jake Palmer takes up the title role as casting nears its completion and scripting was finished yesterday. Director Lily Taylor (Plenty, Cherwell) makes her debut with this short film, hoping to wrap in early January and be prepared for festival release – complete with an original score – by spring.

The first period of shooting begins tomorrow; look out for all the news and pictures soon.
