A FAMILY film debut by a Dorset-based independent film company starring local young actors will be screened at Cineworld in Poole on Thursday.

Children’s tickets cost £2.50 which includes a Q&A session at the end with the scriptwriters and directors, who have also written for Hey Duggee, Oddbods and Thunderbirds are Go.

The film called Who Killed Nelson Nutmeg? is the story of four kids who are on their ‘boring’ summer camp holiday. They suspect the camp’s mascot, Nelson Nutmeg, has been murdered so they set out to investigate.

The film was shot entirely on location in Dorset, and was an entirely independent production. It stars Bonnie Wright aka Ginny Weasley in Harry Potter, who plays one of the ‘grown-ups’, and the number one prime suspect.

Bonnie said: “I really responded to the fact that it was a kids’ film for children. The script has the voice of a child coming through, and I remember often on family holidays wandering around, finding things to do, the crazy things that entertain children, and the imaginations that they have!”

WKNN? is the debut film from Nelson Nutmeg Pictures written and directed by Tim Clague and Danny Stack and co-produced by Jan Caston. Tim a BAFTA-nominated writer and award-winning director, said: “We wanted to bring back British films for British kids. Who Killed Nelson Nutmeg? is a contemporary story for today’s children, but it will remind mums and dads of the kind of films they watched as youngsters and hopefully get kids off their tablets and phones and encourage them to have an adventure

“It’s not been produced by the Hollywood machine, it has been crowd funded by the British public and made as a real passion project – it epitomises our filmmaking heritage.”
