This morning, Tuesday 1st February 2022, the Mary's Dowry Productions filming team went out on location to shoot footage for an upcoming film about Margery Kempe. Here are some screenshots from the filming morning.
We filmed for an hour and a half on location at Patching village once again, local to us, with its old church and grounds and walks and fields.
This enabled us to shoot some interesting shots of Margery Kempe travelling with her staff and pilgrim bag.
We also filmed her with one of her babies as on one pilgrimage she was pregnant and gave birth.
With the narration, written by Tony Triggs, for guidance, we were able to recreate various scenes and moments from Margery Kempe's life. Here she hears the sounds of bellows, which was the breathing of the Holy Spirit in her ears, as well as a bird singing joyfully in her right ear.
Margery Kempe was known for her displays of emotion and outbursts of prayer or sobs.
We filmed Margery Kempe with her baby walking on pilgrimage.
Margery Kempe also experienced mystical visions and ecstasies. We filmed these inside the church and outside the church.
Margery Kempe also saw devils. She was tormented by them and fought them off, as well as being dragged and pulled about them.
Thank you to our mum, Theresa, who did a wonderful job of portraying Margery Kempe.
We are pleased to now be able to make further progress with this film now we finally have the visuals to accompany the narration. This film will be made available from Mary's Dowry Productions website soon. Check back for more information and visit our website at:
