Roses films: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O3QF2KpM-n8
A minimal stage would be needed, a doorway and a window flat.
The scripts will be filmed sequentially, so if you only want to be part of the production, you can just be committed to two weekends.
The interior shoots, on stage will take two days of weekend filming every month.
The exterior shots, mostly around Portland will be another 2 days of weekend filming every month.
The film is to be entered into a national Thomas Hardy festival in July.
INDOOR shooting dates (RMT):
April: 30/31 - The Superstitious Man
May: 28/29 - The Withered Arm
June: 11/12 - The Three Strangers

April: 23/24 - The Superstitious Man

1 weekend outdoors & 1 weekend indoors, for each short story, in the Portland / Weymouth area: Hardy's home
These four shorts will be linked by a narrator, to create a feature-length film. Then the Worldwide Premiere will be held at Christmas, locally
