The Rev. John Jackman, a local filmmaker, has a new movie under way on the life of John Newton, and with the work that’s taking place here over three days, he says he should have about two-thirds of the shooting finished.

Newton was a slave-ship captain who underwent a conversion when his ship was caught in a storm and he prayed for deliverance. He went on to become a pastor and abolitionist who influenced the end of slave trading in the British Empire.
