Feature film to showcase the Valley

AN adaptation of Shakespeare's All's Well That Ends Well is presently being filmed at various location in the Derwent Valley. Produced by Fentonbury Films, the feature-length film is due for national release next year.

All's Well That Ends Well was written by William Shakespeare in 1605. The project team is Aaron Luke Wilson, Peter and Janie Wilson, and John Wilson and about eight years of work has gone into their dream of adapting the 400-year-old play for the screen. Their independent film is set in the early 20th century.

The film is being shot almost entirely in the Derwent Valley. Principal photography started last week at locations including New Norfolk, Plenty, Glenora and Fentonbury, as well as Battery Point. The cast includes well-known Tasmanian actors Andrew Casey and John X.

Fentonbury Films is seeking financial support for the project and is taking pledges to help with the cost of costumes, props, lighting, catering and equipment hire. There is also a Facebook page providing regular updates and photos of the shoot.
