STUDENTS at the University of Portsmouth have been busy filming a drama at a business centre in Gosport.

The Basepoint-operated Gosport Business Centre was turned into a film set for three days as the students filmed a short film.

The students are in the second year of their television and film production degree course and they used the business centre as a set for their production, The Interview.

Alex Minto, writer and director said: ‘This short 
film is about an interviewee who has strange 
visions about how he can sabotage the interview he is going to, so is a bit of a dark comedy.

‘We are really grateful that Basepoint allowed us to use their facilities.

‘It proved to be perfect for what we needed, and the management team at the centre, Andrew and Kerry, were so helpful.’

Andrew Weston, centre manager of Gosport Business Centre, said it was a good project to get involved in.

‘We are really pleased that the students have found the facilities here perfect for their project,’ he said.

‘We see this as another way of strengthening our already close links with the University of Portsmouth as we have been supporters of their Enterprise Challenge for several years now.’

The rest of the team consisted of producer Michael Riding, editor Nika Samani, cameraman Harry Balmforth and Kyle Bradshaw in the supporting acting role.
