Kirkgate Centre set to screen West Cumbrian youngster's premiere
Last updated at 12:27, Friday, 21 September 2012
The premiere of a Great Broughton teenager’s first feature film will be screened tonight.
Lee Rielly, 17, of Coldgill Avenue, has created Greenwood Manor, a thriller about a boy who loses his parents in a car crash.
It is expected that an audience of between 90 and 100 people will attend the premiere at Cockermouth’s Kirkgate Centre.
They will see scenes shot at Tallentire Hall, near Cockermouth.
The film features 25 actors, with many from Cumbria including Calum MacGregor, of Cockermouth.
Lee, a media production student at Carlisle college, said: “I am very excited by the premiere and happy that people are coming to see it.
“This time last year I was just starting college and didn’t think I would have the chance to do this.”
Lee, who went to Cockermouth School, won a Royal Television Society award for best drama earlier this year for a three-minute film Goodbye Dad, which he filmed near Great Broughton.
He said: “I would love to direct feature films as a career and this is my entrance into that world.”
The 80-minute film cost £500 to make, funded by Lee and his family.
