A film producer from a Halifax business has succeeded in getting his work all the way to the big screen at the Old Trafford football ground.

Rick Dooley from the locally-based PR company Limehouse worked on a film with client Yorkshire Tea in conjunction with Yorkshire Day.

And due to its comedic success - portraying the Yorkshire and Lancashire rivalry - it made it to the big screen where it was screened as part of the Ashes Test.

The short film - which took two days to make - features cricket personalities David Lloyd and Michael Vaughan.

In the film, two men paint a white rose on the pitch at Old Trafford and then kidnap Lancastrian Lloyd when he interferes, forcing him to make changes honouring Yorkshire.

Rick, 27, said: “It’s quite a great achievement.

“Being a Yorkshire company and being able to make something for Yorkshire Day, it’s just kind of a perfect fit.

“We were over at Old Trafford all day, it was an interesting shoot.

“I think it’s just the fact that when we work with clients like Yorkshire Tea we can be quite creative with the computer stuff.”
