Dean Spanley – our pottery makes it to Hollywood

dean spanley movie posterSome of the film ‘Dean Spanley’ was shot at Voewood , an ‘Arts and Crafts’ house on the outskirts of Holt. The film starred Sam Neill and Peter O’toole. It is described as ‘an extraordinary story of a curious tail’.

The props manager for the film asked us if we would rent out a selection of pots, as she felt that they were in keeping with the arts and crafts setting. Having no idea about what to charge for the loan, we opted instead for credits at the end of the film.

In fact, we could hardly see the pots, let alone discern that they were ours; and we have never bothered to see if we are included in the credits. However, we absolutely loved the film, and would highly recommend watching it.
