Extras are needed for the filming of a trailer for a new film in Northampton by Screen Northants.

On Sunday October 2, Screen Northants will be shooting the trailer for its feature film Veto’d in central Northampton. Screen Northants will be closing Guildhall Road to shoot one of the film’s musical numbers and wants to enlist the public as extras.

Veto’d is a musical feature film from Northampton writer Suzanna Storey. The movie follows a diverse group of students as they navigate a journey of friendship through a year of university. Tackling ideas of beauty, identity, purpose and belonging, can they find unity in diversity?

Becky Adams, director of Screen Northants said: “We need as many people as possible to fill Guildhall Road, so if you have ever wanted to be in a film or just want to show your support for the creative scene in Northamptonshire, we’d love to see you on the 2nd from 10am.

"Families, community groups and schools are more than welcome to turn out in force! This is about raising the profile of the film but it’s also about showcasing Northamptonshire and its creative talent. Screen Northants has big ambitions for the film industry in Northants!”

Based in the Grosvenor Centre, social enterprise Screen Northants is a film production company, with an emphasis on Community, as well as an agency for the promotion of Northamptonshire to the film industry and to develop talent in the county. Screen Northants has received a small grant from the Big Lottery Fund to support this event.

Once the trailer has been filmed and the film’s budget raised, Screen Northants will shoot the film in Northamptonshire, providing jobs and work experience opportunities for local people as cast and crew.
