Film cameras will be rolling in West Norfolk later this year when work starts on a movie starring a Lynn woman.

Eleanor Pettett is one of the stars of Hallusinogen, which will be filmed in Terrington St Clement in June.

The horror movie was the brainchild of director, Jack Percy.

The movie is centred on a house party where the characters take a drug which leads to different hallucinations.

The 23-year-old Peterborough man has managed to claw together a £10,000 budget to bring his story to life, but is also hoping to attract more sponsorship.

He is aiming for the film to be screened at festivals with the hope of it being picked up by online screening services.

Mr Percy’s work has been inspired by Quentin Tarantino.

He said: “I wanted to try and get as many different genres into the film as I could and using a hallucination made sense.

“As it’s like a dream you can swap locations without having to explain it.

“Each of the hallucinations reflects the character’s personalities.

“One will be a rock music video and another character is a bit in love with themselves so it is set in an enchanted forest.”

The film also stars Annie Larkin and Richard Basey Fisher, from the Wisbech area, along with Megan Stachini, from Borehamwood and Josh Baker, of Castor.

Most the actors were cast after an on-line audition and Mr Percy was able to take on the crew from the recent Dishonoured movie, which was set in South Holland.

The crew, who hail from Peterborough, Spalding and Wisbech, includes production manager Ashley Hornigold, of Lynn.

The original soundtrack is being devised by Oscar Mason of Gorefield, near Wisbech.

Director Mr Percy says this area is ideal for filming.

He said: “I am surprised that more films are not made around here as it is really good location wise, especially for the outdoors scenes.”

Mr Percy is hoping to attract more sponsorship which will help with the film production.

He said: “I am looking for sponsors or companies who would be willing to product place as that would help with the budget so we could add things.

“If we had extra money our soundtrack could be recorded in a professional studio or we could add animation to the opening credits.”
