The Helicopter Museum came alive with the sounds of “Action!” and “Cut!” last week as a small film crew recorded a number of scenes for their début feature using one of the more iconic aircraft in the museum’s vast collection. With the use of some clever lighting angles and a large Green Screen backdrop, the Museums ‘Huey’ helicopter literally took to the skies of Vietnam once more.
The Movie, ‘Shields Of Justice’ is a feature length comedy shot on location in the South West of England, written and conceived by independent film-makers – Tom Hutchings and Ben Tallamy. Drawing inspiration from many sources, the film is a pastiche of classic shows such as Dragnet and Starsky And Hutch. Lampooning the fast-paced snap-talk and over-the-top action that we now associate with the genre.
The Helicopter Museum has proven an extremely popular filming location of late. An episode of ‘The Antiques Road Trip’ that was filmed in the museum last Autumn is scheduled to be screened on BBC2 at the end of this month.
