Blimey, did you know Mel Gibson’s Apocalypto was shot in Cornwall?! And there we were thinking it was filmed in Mexico. Who knew?! South West Screen apparently.
They’ve been blathering on about new figures from the UK Film Council which reveal inward investment of £40 million was brought to D+C through film and telly projects last year. That’s pretty much double the amount in 2005.
Apparently, Apocalypto was filmed in Cornwall (we’re still not convinced), Hot Fuzz was shot in Wells (not in the Jack and Jill sense) and Golden Age (the sequel to Elizabeth, starring Cate Blanchett) was shot in Somerset. Oh, and Moses Barrington was filmed in Torquay. Snort!
As well as that, hundreds of TV shows and commercials have lensed in the region, including Jam And Jerusalem and Doc Martin in Cornwall. Ah, so it’s not all good then.
