Filming continues in Stratford for wartime romance Calling the Tune

FILMING has continued in Stratford for Two Hats’ production of Calling the Tune.

The movie is a wartime romance set in 1980 in the Loire Valley, mid-western France, with flashbacks to the 1940s. And much of the action has been shot in and around the Stratford area.

The latest scenes were filmed during a return trip to Trinity College in Church Street.

The film’s writer-director, Roger Harding, said: “It’s very difficult to find locations with the right period feel. Even when you find a location as good as Trinity College, there’s always the odd light switch that has to be covered, or a smoke detector you have to avoid.”

Earlier the crew shot several scenes at the Drapers Hall in Coventry, which houses a grand piano.

Roger explained: “It’s critical to the plot. You wouldn’t believe how difficult it was to find a grand piano in a grand location that had the right period feel.”

Charlotte Wallis plays French woman Gisele and Christopher Mulvin her German admirer. The film also stars Jason Plessas.

Filming has also taken place in Alveston, King Edward VI Grammar School, All Things Rural at Redhill, Brogan’s Irish Bar and the Iron Works, both in Warwick, and Warwickshire County Council’s headquarters – Shire Hall.
