Student mini-epic short film screened

By Alex Jones in Entertainment

A “THOUGHT-PROVOKING” production which was filmed in Meirionnydd has been well received.

Last Saturday, Aegean previewed at the Dragon Theatre, Barmouth to great acclaim.

The 30-minute adaption of the Greek Tale of Theseus and the Minotaur, set in the Second World War, was filmed at Shell Island in recent months and featured an array of local actors.

Director Charlie Rowlands, writer/producer Richie Howle and editor Jack Allen, who made Aegean as their final year university project, created their mini-epic in the area as they had family ties in the area and had enjoyed summer holidays in the region when they were younger.

An impressed Mev Williams, who works with the Ardudwy Youth & Community Theatre, was present at the screening.

“This student-made short film was very well supported by family, friends and local people,” said Mev, who is also involved with the Ardudwy Knights.

“The film was deeply moving, drawing you in with beautiful cinematography, an emotional yet unobtrusive score and thoughtfully played characters. The plot of the film was also thought provoking and relevant.

“There was a ‘question and answer’ session at the end of the film which the producer and the rest of the crew took part.

“They revealed that the film would now be posted on the internet.”
