A new TV show could be bringing lights, camera, action and jobs to Dalmally if its makers get crowdfunders’ backing.
If the appeal takes off and potential commissioners like the sound of the series called Miss Walker, the village would have a starring role.
The show’s main character Lauren Walker comes from Dalmally and the plot follows her and two other female actors based in Glasgow as they try to make it in Scotland’s modern film and TV industry.
Miss Walker’s producer Euan Brown says the series, if it gets enough funds, would be pitched to international distributors including Channel 4, Netflix and Amazon Prime.
With a flexible target of £5,000, more than £1,500 had been raised by last week. Perks offered to backers include a limited speaking role for a donation of £100 and a mention in the credits for £25. You could be an associate producer for £750.
The funds would initially be used for location fees, sound, drone footage, covid proofing, make-up, travel and catering.
The producer and director of Fulfilment Pictures have been nominated for a combined 17 awards in 2021 alone and the cast of Miss Walker have acted in more than 100 feature films, adverts and short films.
The series-makers hope Miss Walker will shake-up Scotland’s image in mainstream media and get away from ‘bagpipes, drugs and William Wallace slicing up Englishmen’.
Miss Walker’s creator Robin De Vernon Rhyding said: ‘With your backing and our team’s talent, we believe this goal is firmly within our grasp.’
