A film-maker has wrapped-up production on his debut movie and is hoping to premiere it in Norwich.

Alex Joseph shot the all-female buddy film, Wrecking Ball, in Cromer, Sheringham, Overstrand and Beeston Bump.

Entirely self-funded and shot, Mr Joseph said it was made using the digital equivalent of a home movie camera, and funded entirely by his minimum wage day job.

Mr Joseph, who lives near Diss, once lived in New Street, Cromer, and wanted to return to the area to shoot his first feature film.

He wrote, directed and produced the film, and said: "We're looking to organise a premiere in Norwich this December, before committing to a wider release early next year."
