Lights, Camera, Action!!

There is a lot of excitement in Whitby and the surrounding villages.
This is due to the filming of a new project that is being directed by Paul Thomas Anderson.



As you can see from the picture on the right the Oscar Winner Daniel Day-Lewis is the main star of this new film! His co-star is Lesley Manville.



It is thought that the film is based on the fashion scene of fifties London and it is speculated that the film is based on the life of fashion designer Charles James who lived in London at that time and who also lived in New York.



Filming has already been done in Lythe a little village on the outskirts of Whitby, in the graveyard of St Oswalds Church.

It was leaked to one newspaper that they were using the working title "The Phantom Thread" after notices were spotted in the cast and crew vehicles.

Locals have also spotted the film crew in and around Staithes and Robin Hoods Bay filming in different areas of the villages.


Local photographer Glenn Kilpatrick (who's images i am using) wrote on his page "word on the grapevine is that fishing boats have been hired for February in Staithes and some filming will also take part in various cottages on High Street".



It is thought that Daniel Day-Lewis is staying locally in Lythe while filming.

So watch this space as I think I might have to go off celeb spotting on my day off!!
