Red Dog to make Lancaster Bomber film

East Lindsey District Council have commissioned Red Dog Film to make a period drama set in Lincolnshire during World War II about the iconic Lancaster bomber. Just Jane is a bomber whose restoration has been a passion for Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage centre and will no doubt feature in the film.

LSM graduate Phil Stevens is directing, and LSM Senior Lecturer Chris Hainstock has set up a dedicated Facebook page where you can follow the progress of the production.

Competing against a wide range of film makers including 18-strong studio teams from around the UK, the graduates brainstormed on a Friday, filmed all day Saturday and edited up to the wire.



At the UK awards ceremony on 6th October 2012, at the Pheonix Theatre, London – Joseph Fallon won Best Director (with a £5000 Sony camera as prize). The team then won the Audience Award, in a landslide audience vote (prize 2 memberships to the Arts Club in Soho).

The prize was a trip to Los Angeles next year and entry to the Worldwide competition.

“You have to have a lot of determination. If this is the industry you want to be in, then don’t give up. It may take years, but if you’re passionate, it’ll show through.”

After handing in my final assignment in 2010, I only stayed at Lincoln for another month. I was tempted to stay longer of course and make use of the University’s equipment and try to delay the realisation that my student life was over, but I was pretty confident that I was going to get a job in London, or at least an internship quite quickly.

Looking back now, I was unbelievably naïve.
