Glastonbury to come to big screen
A new film project with Glastonbury playing a leading role has moved a step closer to the big screen.
Galatia Films, LLC and Motion Picture Capital Limited recently announced a strategic partnership that combines Motion Picture Capital’s CEO Leon Clarance with Galatia Films’ long developed and highly anticipated project, Glastonbury: Isle of Light.
Producer, Daniel McNicoll, said:
"Motion Picture Capital and Galatia Films both believe the timing is very good for this particular feature film based on the Grail Legend, myths and history that surround Joseph of Arimathea and Glastonbury.
"We’re very excited about the prospect of bringing Glastonbury to the big screen. It’s an iconic legend: England’s rich history and landscape were the first two cast members for us. Certainly the fan-base for the film is growing rather quickly in Britain.
"The tourism industry including Visit Somerset has taken a role in supporting the communication of the pre-film development in an effort to further support the region, long term."
John Turner Vice Chairman of Visit Somerset said:
'During 2012 we have developed a section of the Visit Somerset website purely to inform and update fans of the up and coming film development.
'Since the inclusion of the Glastonbury: Isle of light movie blog, we have seen an almost 40% increase in web traffic totaling some 22.5 Million hits to the website in 2012.'
