Film student heads for Slovenia

A film student from Norfolk has flown to Slovenia to make a film about a water sprite famous in folklore.

Will Cloke-McGregor, from Fakenham, is studying at the University College for the Creative Arts at Farnham, Surrey.

His film, Who's Afraid of the Water Sprite, will be filmed in the village of Bosljjva Loka in Osilnica.

Ahead of filming, which starts on 10 July, he will meet the British Ambassador to Slovenia, Tim Simmons

Fairytale world

Mr Cloke-McGregor, 20, was nominated for a BAFTA last year in the 60-second film category.

The latest project is his first medium length film and is about a mischievous water sprite famous in Slovenian folklore.

Mr Cloke-McGregor said: "Our story is inspired by the mythologies and fables from Slovenia, in particular the mythology of the Water Sprite.

"We chose to film in Boslijva Loka as its incredible untouched landscape offers a perfect setting for the fairytale world we are creating."

He hopes to showcase The Water Sprite next year at locations such as Edinburgh, Berlin, London, and Cannes.
