An independent film director from Forfar is about to see his dreams released when his first full-length film premieres in Perth next month.
The screening is the culmination of months of planning with the filming taking place in Angus and Perthshire, including the stunning interior of the Lowson Memorial Church in Forfar and Corrie Fee in Glen Doll.
Glamis Castle and Rescobie Loch are also featured.
‘Time Teens: The Beginning’ will premiere at Perth Playhouse on Sunday, February 15 in an exclusive gala event.
The original screenplay was written by Perth actor and writer Ian Grieve and directed by Forfar’s Ryan Dewar. It was filmed on location in 25 days over a one-year period.
The cast of professional actors and technicians, including Ian Grieve, Andy Gray, Tom McGovern and Annie Louise Ross, was supported by community actors from the area, all of whom waived their fees and expenses in order to bring the project to fruition.
Financial and in-kind sponsorship from local individuals and businesses, including a £250 sponsorship from the Forfar Roof Truss Company, in conjunction with the ‘Forfar Dispatch’ and ‘Kirriemuir Herald’, allowed its completion with G1’s Perth Playhouse supporting the premiere night and week-long public screening following the opening event.
This is the first fictional co-production for Dreamcastle Films, owned by Dewar and Baudelaire Productions owned by Grieve, although they have worked on a feature-length documentary in the past.
Their successful partnership was rekindled to facilitate ‘Time Teens: The Beginning’ and to lay the foundations for a new Scottish film production industry.
