Filmmakers praise Burnham
THE TEAM behind a film project which celebrates Burnham through a patchwork of film clips have thanked everyone for their support.
Somerset-based Theatre Melange put together the 'Echo Burnham' project, which created a unique and affectionate portrait of the coastal town.
The film clips were combined with interviews with residents - set against Burnham imagery, to reveal the town's past, present and future.
The project was shown at the Princess Theatre and organisers would like to thank the theatre, individuals, clubs, and the Town Council.
Sandy Maberley, artistic director of the company, said: “Thank you for inviting us into your homes and for sharing your stories with us.
“The challenge in making this 'portrait of a coastal town' has not been what to put in but the difficulty of choosing what to leave out.
“The journey is not finished yet though and we will be looking at ways of using and adding to the material that has been generated in the future.”
The group hopes to create a DVD by Christmas.
