Writer/Director: Laura Spini
Starring: Fred Melamed
Kent Locations Used: Studd Hill, Herne Bay and Margate
Laura Spini’s directorial debut short, You Are Whole, is a dark comedy, following Norman Pugg (played by Hollywood actor Fred Melamed), a spiritual teacher visiting houses in a small British sea-side town. He is soon mistaken for a serial killer, as he seems to leave a trail of deaths across the town. The short film was selected for the Edinburgh International Film Festival, Palm Springs International Shortfest and the London Short Film Festival.
Kent locations used are both Herne Bay and Margate.
Herne Bay is a coastal resort which is home to the world’s first free standing purpose built clock tower, and boasts a beautiful beach and seafront. Previous filming has taken place here for Holiday of My Lifetime with Len Goodman (2016), Boomers (2014 and 2016) and Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em (1973).
Margate is a seaside town complete with sandy beach, harbour, amusement park, period housing and ultra-modern art gallery Turner Contemporary. Previous filming here includes The Tunnel: Sabotage (2016), Coast (2014), Edge of Heaven (2014) and many more.
