Actor Craig Roberts makes film-making a family affair

Craig Roberts has recruited his family to star alongside him in his directorial debut Just Jim, which is being filmed in his hometown.

The actor, 23, won a BAFTA Cymru for the 2010 coming-of-age film Submarine and has written and and directed his latest film about a Welsh teenager and his American neighbour.

They've been filming in the area around his home village of Maesycwmmer in Caerphilly county for three weeks.

The film is expected to be released in 2015.

BBC Wales arts and media correspondent Huw Thomas has been behind the scenes.
