What a brilliant time we all had!
Anglesey treated us to its beauty, and even the weather was mostly on our side. After four long days the film is in the can and we can finally catch up on some sleep again. Take a look at the production stills to get a sense of our journey.
Throughout the shoot we got great feedback from local people about how much it meant to them to see Santes Dwynwen’s story being re-imagined. Filming on Llanddwyn Island was a beautiful, unique experience, and we hope the magic of Llanddwyn will come through in our tale.
Our lovely Cast & Crew have put in an incredible amount of hard work into the film and have shown diligence and passion, which we’re sure will come through on the big screen. This remarkable passion and sense of family will give a special nuance to the film.
