A budding Lancaster film producer has just released a film centred around a family caravan.

Edward Rastelli-Lewis, 24, has been working on the independent film The Caravan over the past couple of years, after coming across a script written by two actors.

Edward, who attended Ripley St Thomas School in Lancaster, and then did a Degree in Film Production before graduating from UCLAN in 2012, said he was proud of the end result.

He said: “The film came about through two actors I met who had a script and wanted to move it forward.

I helped with finance and funding, and we were able to move it on. It was filmed in Caernarfon, North Wales and Manchester.”

He added: “I love good story telling, drama and narrative, things that influence people and change their way of thinking. I’m very proud of the film, it’s a good story.”

The film stars Shirley Henderson (Bridget Jones/ Trainspotting), Mark Sheals (Sherlock Holmes) and Darren Connolloy (Hector) and is currently available on iTunes, Google, Amazon and Blinkbox.

Edwards said of the film: “When Georgina Langley succumbs to cancer, she leaves behind a will asking warring husband Keith and son James to restore the family caravan that has lapsed into a state of disrepair on a bleak Welsh coast Caravan Park. For two men who can’t stand to be in the same room together, it’s going to be a tough job and when a new woman comes into Keith’s life James reacts badly, leading to a showdown that unearths a long buried secret”.
