A FILM crew is busy shooting scenes across a platform inside a railway station.

Photos taken at Brighton railway station this morning show dozens of actors in period costume.

Crews were seen working with several screens and lighting rigs, including a large green screen on one side of the station.

It is thought the crew could be working on scenes for the feature film Vindication Swim, directed by the youngest film director in the UK, Brighton-born Elliott Hasler.

Set in the 1920s, the film tells the true story of Mercedes Gleitze from Brighton who became the first English woman to swim the Channel.

Crews were spotted working on the film earlier this year in Dudley Mansions and Lansdowne Place in Hove.

However, last week film star Bill Nighy was spotted taking a break from shooting at Worthing Lido.

The actor has been cast in a film called Living, set in the 1950s. 

But it has also been reported the Love Actually star was in Sussex to film a new Amazon series, titled Families.

Sussex Film Office said they were unable to confirm details on productions while shooting is underway.

Relsah Productions, the production company behind Vindication Swim, said earlier this week that the film's sea shoots were almost done, with scenes filmed off the coast in Newhaven as well as various other locations in Sussex for other parts of the movie - from Cuckmere Haven and Eastbourne Pier to Stanmer House.

The Argus:

Filming was put on hold last year due to the pandemic and the first national lockdown.

Director Elliot Hasler previously told the Argus: "It’s a proper Sussex-based film and just such an inspirational story.

"More people have climbed Everest than have swum the channel.”
