This is Episode 1 of a 7 part weekly documentary entitled 'The Recipe to Ambleton Delight: How to Make a Next-to-Nothing Budget Feature Film' that explores 40 vital factors involved in low budget film production by means of interviews with key members of cast and crew, excerpts from the film itself and behind-the-scenes footage and photographs.
Although 'Ambleton Delight' was made on what is considered in the industry as a 'no budget,' host Kieron James, also the film's assistant director, reveals insider information and dozens of tips and advice that eventually led the film to win several awards, including Best Film, Best UK Feature, and Best Actor. Topics cover such aspects as filming night and rain scenes, getting funding and how to get a named actor, with an interview with celebrity actor Brian Capron, who stars as the Mayor in the film.
The film itself revolves around a small fictional Sussex village by the name of Ambleton, during the apple harvest season, in which a forward thinking restaurant chef (Jos Lawton) battles the conservative villager's stance against a motorway proposal.
The 47 minute documentary has been divided into 7 episodes which will be released once a week during March and April 2010, culminating in the film's final official trailer being released on the 24th April at the British Independent Film Festival awards, after which the film will be screened in its entirety.
