London: Rockers Noah and the Whale have swapped the stage for the screen by shooting a short science-fiction movie.
Frontman Charlie Fink has directed the untitled film, about teens living in a dystopian society, and recruited his bandmates for cameos, while `X-Men: First Class` star Bill Milner leads the cast, reported Daily Star.
Fink also recruited Noah and the Whale fans to be extras, but says he was nervous they would walk out after long days shooting on location in London in the middle of winter, reported Daily Star.
"I was worried because filming is a tough gig. They were huddling around a radiator in a freezing warehouse... I wanted to make a sci-fi coming-of-age movie. I`m wary that sounds silly, but it`s not.
"It`s got real characters. At its base, it`s a story about a band`s last gig. But it`s slightly complicated because it`s in this heightened reality world where teenagers are separated from society until they`re considered mature enough to re-enter," Fink added.
The `5 Years Time` hitmakers hope to enter the project into short film festival competitions once it is completed.
