A feature film produced and directed by two Eastbourne residents has been selected to appear at a festival next year.
The hour-and-a-half-long thriller, called C.A.M, was accepted into the Horror-on-Sea film festival, due to take place in Southend in mid-January.
The film’s producer, Louis Frost, and director, Steve Du Melo, are from Eastbourne and picked many actors from the surrounding area to appear in the movie.
The picture sells itself as containing ‘real and terrifying footage from a training operation using military and police personnel’ that happened after a rare parasite contaminated a meat processing plant.
For the men, who run a film company in Eastbourne called MeloMedia Films, it was their debut movie.
Producer Steve Du Melo says, “Film making is not about the money, which is often at the forefront of this elitist industry. It’s a multi-layered process. It’s about good story telling, originality, good lighting, great music, talented actors and having the taste to know when it’s right.”
The Horror-on-Sea festival showcases the finest independent horror films from across the world, with C.A.M. to be shown at 5.30pm on Sunday, January 19.
MeloMedia Films is hoping to release the film on Blu-Ray, DVD and VOD after the festival, while also making two more films next year - a thriller called Blood Red and a comedy horror film with a surprising twist.
