Hungerford hosts sci-fi premiere

In Divinity, an angel named Primus is sent to earth as a last hope in ending a war that has raged hundreds of years and it will be screened for the first time at the auditorium of the Herongate Leisure Centre to more than 100 people on Sunday (March 10).
The hour-long sci-fi action web series has been made on a zero budget with actors and support staff volunteering to help Drew, who is just 18-years-old, to create the hour-long film.
It will be screened to the public through a series of webisodes spanning seven weeks to an audience expected to quickly reach more than a million views on YouTube.
“Divinity has involved in 15 months of filming and has been in post-production since the start of 2012 and is the most ambitious project I have completed to date. I have directed and appeared in the movie and other actors were drawn from some of the biggest supporters of previous projects.
“It has been largely filmed on location in West Berkshire and no doubt eagle-eyed viewers will be spotting just where Divinity took shape. It has been created without any funding so local filming was essential as was the volunteered support and advice that has come from friends and fans across the world.
“We’ve invited those supporters to the premiere where we will show the whole movie, while those watching online will have to wait for seven weeks to see all the webisodes that will make up the film online. I’ve been posting teasers for many months now and there is real anticipation and a black tie event in my hometown seems a fitting way to unveil Divinity.
“Remarkably after such an exciting 18 months I am already involved in projects that will eclipse Divinity, which I will talk about on the night, but this is my first film length project and I am tremendously proud to have created my first movie and web series after so many short films.”
The entire soundtrack for Divinity has been scored by Martin Pawley, head of MSP Productions and also includes tracks from local band ‘Firestate’.
There is an open invitation to fans of Drew Casson’s work to attend the premiere, although those wishing to be at the event need to book their space on Facebook and the webisodes can be seen online at either www.Youtube.com/kermitcasson, Search Google for: “Drew Casson Divinity” or at www.seekthedivinie.co.uk
