Pinewood in Wales 'feels right' says film-maker

The film studio responsible for the James Bond franchise is marking a year since their plans for Cardiff were first unveiled.

Pinewood Shepperton has spent the last few months moving into the 180,000 sq ft complex at Wentloog.

Film producer John Giwa-Amu of Red and Black Films - behind sci-fi thriller The Machine and Little White Lies - said: "We do sci-fi so there are a lot of sets built, a lot futuristic stuff, so to have somewhere with the capacity of Pinewood and to know we can stay in Wales with the support of the wonderful crew is brilliant."

He told BBC Wales arts and media correspondent Huw Thomas that as well as attracting work to Wales, Pinewood will allow Welsh film-makers to work on bigger projects on their doorstep.
