The Chagford Filmmaking Group is nearing its next shoot The Laidley Worm of Spindleston Heugh, which takes place on Dartmoor between August 11 and 16.
It’s an incredible story from Northumbria about a princess who gets turned into a dragon. It carries deep indigenous wisdom, as well as being an utterly compelling tale, and will make a unique film.
The group is calling for assistance.
“Our volunteers need feeding,” said Elizabeth Jane Baldry. “If you are able to provide a meal, please get in touch. If you live too far away to whiz over to Chagford with food, then please consider donating a meal for £30.
“You’ll see your name in the movie credits preserved for ever and ever as a feeder of fairies! Isn’t that insanely fabulous? Just £30 for eternal fairy notoriety. AND you’ll have a nice warm glow in your heart knowing that you are supporting our magnificent folklore heritage.”
And the set building day is August 8.
“If you’d like to come and help create the princess’s bedroom in the afternoon, let us know so we can cater for you and bake cakes for tea,” said Elizabeth Jane.
Costume graduate Laura Mackrill is creating the dragon. We’ve included one of her sketches, but you can pop along to see more.
