On Tuesday, February 4, local filmmaker Chris Thomas will unveil his latest film, The Nightman of Nevermoor. The 50-minute film features a selection of Devon’s most picturesque locations, great emerging actors and showcases the talented production crews at work in Devon today.
The Nightman of Nevermoor was filmed over six days and director Chris Thomas shot many of the film’s scenes at Pennymoor, Totnes and several other locations across North and South Devon. Considering the limited resources, the local filmmaker has certainly stretched the £3000 raised via crowd funding.
Just take a look at this scintillating poster that’s clearly indebted to the work of Drew Struzan -the man behind all those iconic Lucas/Spielberg film posters (to name but a few).
The film takes place in the fictional Devon village of Nevermoor, where 11-year-old Nick has come to live with his estranged father (after two years apart). But the village is in a panic; two film students have gone missing and the locals claim an unknown figure -the Nightman -has been spotted lurking around the village at night. Things get even weirder when an ominous, self-proclaimed hunter shows up to stalk the unknown entity.
As father and son struggle to re-connect, they’re thrown into the unravelling mystery taking place within the village. Could the Nightman really be an otherworldly creature? Can anyone trust the hunter? Is it all an elaborate hoax? And, perhaps more importantly, will anyone show up for the village fÃªte?
