It’s set to be a case of “lights, cameras, action” in Swaffham and parts of West Norfolk as the film cameras return to the area again this autumn.
A new feature film, called The Goob, is to be located in Swaffham and the rural area between there and Wisbech, with filming likely to start in September, it has been revealed.
Swaffham previously enjoyed fame when ITV chose the town as the main location for its popular series Kingdom, with Stephen Fry as a Norfolk solicitor tackling problems set by his family, colleagues and strange clients needing his legal assistance.
The Goob will be filmed with £350,000 of funding from iFeatures2, a low budget film making initiative from Creative England, in partnership with BBC Films, The British Films Institute and Creative Skillset.
Explaining why he chose Swaffham, writer and director Guy Myhill, who lives in Norwich, said: “I like the race track there and made a documentary about it for Channel 4 a couple of years ago.
“It’s got that unique atmosphere – it’s a love it or hate it place. If asked my top 10 locations in Norfolk, that would be one of the locations for me.”
Mr Myhill said The Goob would be a family drama, set around a single mum with two sons who becomes so lovestruck on a stock car driver that she is in danger of neglecting her sons’ needs.
He said: “It has a stock car backdrop and is also about eastern European people coming in to work the harvest in the area between Swaffham and Wisbech.
