‘Leave Now’ is truly a local film. Ramsgate is one of its stars. Ninety-per-cent of the film was shot in Ramsgate, the rest being filmed not much further afield on the Isle of Thanet, and – for one day – in Kingsdown, our furthest location. We used local streets, schools, houses old and new, the beach, and of course the beautiful Ramsgate harbour. We also wanted to use Thanet’s special light and micro-climate – a holy grail for film-makers.
But ‘Leave Now’ is local in another very important sense – our cast and crew were all drawn from the vicinity. The director Stephen Frost, and producer Tracy Russell, both live in Ramsgate and felt it was important to give film-making experience and employment to local people. In addition, they wanted to instil a sense of family and community, in the belief that this can lift the storytelling itself to a higher level.
