Agyness Deyn starts shoot for Electricity
Principal photography has started on Electricity, starring Agyness Deyn [pictured], Lenora Crichlow, Christian Cooke, Paul Anderson, Tom Georgeson and Alice Lowe.
Bryn Higgins directs from Joe Fisher’s script adapted from Ray Robinson’s award-winning novel.
Clare Duggan produces for Stone City Films. Alison Morgan executive produces. Soda Pictures has UK rights.
The film is shooting for 6 weeks in the Northeast and London.
The story is about brash young woman (Deyn) who leaves her seaside hometown to search for her long lost brother, and experiences hallucinations brought on by her epilepsy.
Deyn said: “I love Lily’s journey, she is a survivor. Her strength and her ability to live in the present really drew me to her. She is a delight to discover and she’s teaching me a lot.”
The BFI Film Fund has backed the project, alongside the Wellcome Trust.
The filmmaking team previously worked together on Unconditional.
