Looks like I was too quick with my update yesterday. Not only did another local internet site confirm the shooting locations but also provide set pictures – also one with a very nice shot of Sophia Myles as Lucy. Visit the local website of Burnham-On-Sea. Quote:
“A spokesman for Granada TV told Burnham-On-Sea.com: “The rugged, stark background of Brean Down makes an ideal backdrop. It appears a mystical place and is well suited to Dracula.”
Already in June this year Brean was used to film ‘The Golden Age’ starring Cate Blanchett.
Sorry for the recent lack of updates. But I’m back now and I hope to add some great stuff on the site soon!
An update on the current filming of ‘Dracula’, concerning shooting locations. Regions in the UK include Bath, Bristol, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire. Specific houses have been mentioned as well: Chavenage House, near Tetbury, Eastnor Castle in Ledbury and Tyntesfield in Wraxall, near Bristol.
I changed some settings in the gallery. The preview pictures are now all of the same size & format – this doesn’t have any effect on the actual pictures themselves however, don’t worry.
MoviesOnline announced that the ‘Art School Confidential’ DVD is going to be released in North America (DVD Region 1) October 10, 2006. The extras will include Deleted Scenes, Blooper Reel, Making of Art School Confidential, Sundance Featurette – Cast and crew experience at the premiere.

‘Miss Marple: Sleeping Murder’ is now filming. Part of the shooting is taking place in Sidmouth, Devon (UK). Ed Hall, son of Peter Hall, is directing. It’s the first time he’s working for television. Before, he was working at the National Theatre. Geraldine McEwan is playing Miss Marple, Russ Abbot the local detective Inspector Primer. Another lead role is Gwenda Reed, played by Sophia Myles. Other cast members include Dawn French, Una Stubbs, Peter Serafinowicz, Anna-Louise Plowman, Martin Kemp, Sarah Parish, Paul McGann, Phil Davis, Geraldine Chaplin (daughter of famous Charlie Chaplin) and Aidan McArdle. The 2-hour ITV/Granada production will air late 2005/early 2006.
This is a synopsis for the Agatha Christie novel the drama is based upon:
“Let sleeping murder lie”: This is the motto which is not obeyed by Gwenda Halliday, a woman in her early twenties who has recently married and now comes to England to settle down there. For all she knows, she has never set foot on English soil before, as her father brought her directly from India to New Zealand when she was a two year-old girl. While her husband is still abroad on business, she drives around the countryside looking for a suitable house which might become their permanent residence. She decides on the small village of Dillmouth in the South of England when she finds a nice old house there called Hillside which immediately appeals to her. Little does she know yet why this is the case.
