Shooting resumes on James


Wednesday afternoon sees the James team of Lily Taylor, Andrew Hall, lead actor Jake Palmer and co-star Luke Martin resume shooting in the beautiful surroundings of Keble College, Oxford. Following the story of Ian Fleming’s eponymous James Bond in his humble beginnings at university, work on the short film this week includes the group’s first experience shooting a fight scene. With a cast entirely comprised of newcomers to acting, performances this far have been impressive, and the group expands this week with the addition of Leo Donnachie, as discussion also continues with editor Ashley Hughes (founder at ARTHAUS) and potential composers for the film.

James stars Jake Palmer, Luke Martin, Esther Hodges, Georgina Ndukwe, Ollie Robinson, Josh O’Shaughnessy, Leo Donnachie and Roisin Swords-Kieley, directed by Lily Taylor. A cast photoshoot is scheduled for the coming days, so watch this space for publicity materials and the film’s official trailer, coming later this spring.
