A SALISBURY filmmaker, who has been working with directing legend Martin Scorsese, will be bringing his latest work to the city this weekend.

Dean Woodford grew up in Salisbury writing films, and has now been recognised by top names in the movie making industry, including the Shutter Island and The Wolf of Wall Street director.

‘Tomorrow’ explores the lives of battle-worn soldiers trying to integrate back into normal society, with Scorsese as the executive producer, Martha Pinson as the director and Woodford as one of the lead producers.

The 35-year-old began his filmmaking journey at the Salisbury Campus of Wiltshire College, before his life changed thanks to a chance meeting with Pinson at the British International Film Festival, later landing films with big names in the field, including James Bond casting directors, Debbie and Jemima McWilliams.

This movie has been Woodford’s first time as a producer.

“It was different because I was not the writer, but this was just such a mad experience,” Woodford said.

“To think I had just finished at college to now doing this - it has all happened so quickly.”

The film was shot in London and also features scenes from Tedworth House, Tidworth, which is a recovery centre run by charity Help for Heroes, providing support for serving military personnel and veterans.

And Stephen Fry, James Cosmo, Stuart Brennan, Sophie Kennedy Clark and Joss Stone made up just some of the star-studded cast.

There will be a special screening of Tomorrow at Salisbury Odeon tonight to celebrate the place where Woodford began his career.

He added: “Without Salisbury I would not be here, so I am excited to be back and bring my work to where I belong.

“I’m really looking forward to showing the local audience what I’ve been up to but I’m still nervous.

“It is just crazy that I have gone from making films with friends to working on projects like this, I am so lucky to have got so many massive opportunities.”

Woodford has also co-written and directed a 26-minute one shot film, STAR, that is hitting festivals next year.

The gala showing of Tomorrow will begin at 7pm, for more information and to book tickets visit the Odeon website.
