Independent filmmaker Mark Garvey was capturing action sequences in the iconic building for his latest production.

Mark is a media lecturer at Oaklands College and is also the critically acclaimed writer and director of films such as the 2017 Essex-based revenge thriller, “The Same Circles”.

He chose the former Shredded Wheat building, now owned by Wheat Quarter Limited, as the location for his latest web series, “Union Jack”.

Together with his creative team Sam O’Hara-Childs, Jasmine Knight and Simon Cleary, he is now producing “Union Jack”, which brings to life the Marvel character.

Mark said: “I have always been a huge fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but frustrated with its lack of a British hero.”

Jeremy Fooks, a director at ZM Land & Capital said: “The former Shredded Wheat production hall makes a great location with its peeling paint, extensive, industrial floors and panoramic windows.

“We hope to be able to welcome more film crews in the coming months.”

The “Union Jack” series is expected to air in spring 2019.

Plans for the proposed development in the former Shredded Wheat building have now been submitted to Welwyn and Hatfield Council.
