Holbeach set to be setting for new mini series

More news, no ads


Cameras are set to roll in Holbeach again when the town plays backdrop to a new gritty eight-part series produced by local talent.

After a two-year hiatus, the Holbeach Film Company is thrilled to be back working on its new production - 15 and Killing It - which it hopes will be a free release via YouTube next year.

Writer, actor and director Steph Genovese describes the series as a gory thriller, tackling tough topics including homelessness, murder and abuse – giving it an 18 rating.

“It’s great to be back doing what we love – so far we’ve got the trailer done and some of the script,” said Steph, whose own acting credits include Transformer’s Dark Knight.

“This one started off as a movie, but once we got writing there were so many different storylines to explore we decided a 90-minute film wasn’t going to cut it!

“Now we’re now looking at doing a feature-length first episode, and then seven more, about 45 minutes each.”

Steph is writing the script in conjunction with fellow Holbeach residents Natasha Newman and Paul Denman. The story follows a 15-year-old homeless girl Jess, played by Mia Holley, who has been wronged throughout her life. A chance meeting with Steph’s character leads her to exact revenge on those who hurt her.

“Mia is a great young actress. I worked on something in Downham Market a couple of years ago, and her performance then blew me away.

“Although some of the parts have been cast, we’re still looking for more people to be involved as extras and behind the scenes.

“As always, we’re self-funding the project, so if anyone would be interested in sponsoring or donating something that would be great too.’

Holbeach Film Company has already filmed a trailer at various locations around Holbeach, including charity shop Chosen.

The team is now looking for more local venues – including a warehouse, barn or outbuilding – to film murder scenes and homes, with spacious but not too modern kitchens.They’re also looking for some offices which could double as police offices.
