|The Ballad of Mary Whiddon|
a sensational film
to be projected on the buildings of Chagford
To all our dear friends, fairies, and supporters
You don't hear from us for months, and then suddenly it's three emails in a week!
We promise to be quiet for a while after this, but enthusiasm has taken over and we just had to remind you about tonight!
'The Mary Whyddon Outdoor Projection is amazing!'
'A one-off event TONIGHT that will never be repeated!'
Thanks to National Lottery funding, the Chagford Film Festival splashed out a whacking £5,000 to hire two state-of-the-art projectors and an incredible high quality sound system. 370 years after Mary's tragic life, her story unfolds across the facade of the house where she lived and the church where she died. An 8 minute sequence of images taken from our forthcoming feature film has created especially for this event.
Audiences were blown away yesterday by hearing the dramatic music and the fatal gunshot echoing across the graveyard under a Dartmoor night sky with a waxing moon and scudding clouds.
I'll be at the first two screenings (7.30pm and 7.45pm) and the last screening at 9.15pm. After that, I'll be in the bar of the Globe Inn. Join me there for a drink!
Love to all of you from Elizabeth-Jane xxx
