VOLUNTEERS are needed for a film being made in support of the campaign to reopen Ipswich's Broomhill pool.

Local film director James Sharpe, who is backing the pool campaign, is using actors and technicians from the area to create Halfway to Heaven.

The film, which will be shot in January or February, is being made by people donating their time and services and proceeds will help the Broomhill Pool Trust, with half of the profits going to the pool charity.

Roles in the film have already been cast but a boom operator and a lighting operator are needed for the project, while others wanting to help out can also get in touch with the team behind the project.

Halfway to Heaven is a story about a man who is visited in his sleep by God. God tells him he will be spending time at a "halfway house" when dead, until God, who is female in the film, can make up her mind about where to put him.

While in the house he falls in love with a girl and they plan to spend eternity together but God has other plans.

Mr Sharpe has previously made a film called The Pool which was filmed at Broomhill Pool and was chosen by Channel 4 to appear on its website.

Broomhill Pool was officially closed in 2003 but supporters have campaigned to have it reopened ever since. Ipswich Borough Council has pledged to help the effort as long as other funding can be acquired.

Anyone interested in being involved in Halfway to Heaven should e-mail Mr Sharpe at showreels4u@hotmail.com or call 0788 3790427.
