WORLD War I is being replayed on a paddock near Holbrook as part of a young film makerís first feature movie.

Brad Haynes is directing Broken Sun, which links a 1914-1918 war veteran to a Japanese soldier who escapes from a prisoner of war camp in Australia in 1944.

His partner, Sasha Huckstepp, is producing the movie, with has a cast of eight main actors and five or six others.

Haynes, 31, lives in Sydney but his parents, Bert and Maree Haynes, allowed him to use their farm, Jacka, to film flashbacks to the trenches of France in 1917.

That meant digging trenches in almost rock-hard, dry ground west of Holbrook.

A trench warfare atmosphere was created with the help of a production designer and expert in military hardware and clothing, Ian Sparke.

Haynes, 31, has previously directed and produced short films, including Somewhere Near Kokoda.

Both Haynes and Huckstepp work in television full-time and have undertaken Broken Sun on a modest budget, helped by Mr and Mrs Haynes and local people at Holbrook.

ďSome local Holbrook footballers are in the movie as extras but some of them were too big for our uniforms,Ē Huckstepp laughed.

Wagga actor George Lightfoot was the right size for a trench scene yesterday and armed himself with a .303 rifle.

Haynes said that he had drawn on memories of three Japanese who survived the famous Cowra breakout of 1944 in which 234 of the comrades died, but the movie would not specifically mention Cowra.

Instead it would focus on the relationship between an escapee, Masaru (played by Shingo Usami) and the old Australian war veteran (Jai Koutrae).
