A Frome production company has made a fun film imagining what would happen if a statue of Jane Austen was brought to life.
The firm, Doubleshot, has followed the exploits of the author enjoying the sights of Bath before returning to her position outside the Jane Austen Centre in Gay Street.
The film not only celebrates the famous author but also the city's architecture and it's getting a lot of interest worldwide. It has attracted more than 100,000 views through social media.

The Jane Austen Centre in Bath has unveiled what experts believe is an accurate likeness of the world-famous author.
The model is the culmination of forensic research, eye-witness accounts, and a costume designer.
The Jane Austen Centre in Bath will be unveiling a waxwork of the author which they believe is the closest likeness since she was alive nearly 200 years ago.
The waxwork is the result of a three year project, and was modelled using eye-witness accounts, a forensic artist and a BAFTA award-winning costume designer.
