Budding filmmakers have the chance to get involved in a new production set in a south Norfolk market town.

The Harleston Jobs Club have teamed up with the Workers' Educational Association (WEA) for the Filmability project, which will give volunteers the chance to take on roles including research, script writing, location filming and editing.

Adam Bracher, WEA technology development manager, who is running the project, said: 'I think we can really put on a fantastic, innovative and engaging programme that will capture the imagination of the town.'

Lucy Marjoram, Jobs Club co-ordinator, said: 'We are very excited to be holding the project in Harleston.

'It is a great way for people to work as part of a team to gain skills such as organising, time management, budgeting, research and writing.

'It's something totally new and different that hasn't been done before in Harleston.' Ms Marjoram said anyone interested did not need previous experience in filmmaking, just enthusiasm and the desire to try out something new. The project will start this month and will run every Friday 9.30am to 2.30pm, over eight sessions.

It is open to everyone over 19 years of age and costs £112, but fee is waived for those in receipt of income related benefits.
