Filmmaker returns to hometown
A WRITER and director from Clevedon has returned to his hometown to film a movie pilot.
David Wike, aged 33, has worked as a theatre director in London but has now moved into filmmaking.
His first feature, to be called Spring in June, will be based in Clevedon and the cast and crew were in town this week to film a pilot for it.
They visited landmarks including the pier and Clevedon School to create the pilot, which will be shown to potential investors in the hope of getting enough funding to create the full-length version.
During their stay in Clevedon, the crew also used the Royal Oak pub in Copse Road as their base.

David, a former Clevedon School pupil and whose parents still live in Clevedon, said: “For me this film is about hope, freedom and the restoration of imbalance in nature.
