Filming is soon to begin on the pilot for the new television series called The Ministry. It has taken many months to get to this stage and the cast and crew are all looking forward to beginning.

The filming is due to take place in and around Cheltenham over the next two weeks and some local businesses have been kind enough to give help with locations. Fever Night Club and Natural Grocery Store in Cheltenham have kindly agreed to have the Burnt Papyrus production company film some scenes in there businesses. The Bull Hotel in Fairford is also helping out,doubling for both a lavish torture chaimber and the office of The Minister (the shadowy figure at the heart of our story).

With filming beginning soon the whole production company have been working hard sorting out last minute props and the arrangements for the shoot. From painting guns to building steadycam rigs, all of the props and costumes are coming together in time for the shoot starting on Wednesday. A website is being set up to give more information about the filming and will be live shortly.
