A Newcastle director has collaborated with filmmakers from across the globe to create a record-breaking, cross-continental feature film.
Wallsend's Craig Lines, best known for his work on childrens' television dramas Tracy Beaker and Byker Grove, is one of 25 directors who worked together to create The Owner.
The film has broken the world record for the most directors working on one movie and is due to be listed in the Guiness Book of Records.
Filmed across five different continents, each director has written and produced one segment of the film without any knowledge of the work done by their co-directors.
Rather than following a character, the narrative follows a backpack as it works its way through the different countries in which the multi-lingual movie was filmed.
The filmmakers, from countries including USA, South Africa, Lebanon, China, France and Germany, did not meet each other during the process.
Mr Lines filmed the Newcastle section of the film in his local village hall in Clara Vale near Wylam.
He worked with a crew and actors from the North East, including actress Louise Franklin who worked alongside him on Tracy Beaker.
The three-man cast also included actors Joe MacCabe and Daymon Britton who played Kevin and Dom in Byker Grove.
The multi-genre film was pioneered by Chicago directors Marty Shea and Ian Bonner who have each produced one section of the movie.
The world premiere of the film will be held at the Tyneside Cinema on May 25, 2012.
