So, I did ‘Glitch‘, all those months ago, and it went rather well! There’s a nice quote on my Projects page (which has had a bit of an update, along with the Links page…). When I manage to pull my finger out it shall be put on down in the Big Smoke. More on this as and when.
I’ve been rather slack with the updates on here, but things have been happening nonetheless.
Just finished a shoot for a music video with Jasmin Jodry at the helm. It’s a dark and moody green screen delight with me as a victim of a Vampire of time in a soulless metropolis. You can watch here, it in all its eerie glory:
I’ve also been a Post Production office’s Tea Lady love interest in a project for students of West Herts College in Watford, and bagged the main part in a great little short by graduating students of UCCA down in Farnham (formally SIAD) called ‘Small Talk‘, which has an Amelie / Lost In Translation feel about it according to people who’ve seen it so far. There’s going to be a screening of ‘Small Talk‘ at the Curzon in Soho next month, and I think some more screenings following this one are in the pipeline.
When I have copies of all of these projects I’ll post a link to them/upload to the site.
Showreel here we come…?!
I’ve also had a re-jig of my News page, along with the rest of the website. As always – let me know if something isn’t working properly as I’m doing all this on my lovely, getting on a bit now, Mac.
Should hopefully have some more exciting news in the next few days fingers crossed…
You can now see me in my half a second, painful, bookish glory in Filament Pictures‘ ‘Figure of Speech’, filmed for the Cobra Vision competition, here (click on ‘September’ on that page if you can’t see it straight away…) Blink and you may miss me, but the whole thing’s worth a look.
If you think it’s the bees knees, then vote for it as your favourite of the month here (I’m guessing there’s not much time left on that one…)
Aaand – the London run of VEGA$M draws ever closer. Expect a full on revamp!
Phew! I’ve just come round after being hit on the head repeatedly with a red Encyclopedia on Tuesday morning…
It was all in aid of the Cobra Vision short film competition being run by Cobra Beer. Won’t go into more detail now so’s not to spoil the filmakers’ chances but when I have a copy of the 5 second short I’m in, directed by Richard Merritt and Martin Christien, I’ll upload it for your sniggering pleasure 🙂
I will, however, just say for the record, that it was all done with mirrors.
Tonight is re-shoot night for ‘Blood Hungry’, a Horror short written and produced by Funk Vision (new website coming soon. I’ll post the link when it’s done.) in which I’m the protagonist. The main bulk of it was shot last Friday, Saturday and Sunday, but due to them inevitable technical hitches there is to be more of me being chased by meat cleaver wielding demons tonight. Yeah!! I should have a copy of it fairly soon and if the guys let me upload it then it’ll be somewhere on this site for a bit.
Just got some new photos printed from my current contact sheet, so there’s a couple of new headshots up on my gallery page if you wish to have a gander…
Last, but definitely not least, Vittoria of FoolishPeople has come across a site that enables you to ‘South Park’ yourself:
These are Tor’s spot on interpretations of me, John and her glorious self. Team FP all South Parked up. Hehe 🙂
You can find a link to the site in question here at Vittoria’s lair on the web.
Yesterday I ventured forth to Hertfordshire for a meeting with John and Vittoria of FoolishPeople. After perusing my first sketches, having a good catch up and imbibing a good dose of caffeine, we got down to the ominous task of setting John and I some Wet Shards deadlines. The aim is to have 2 issues published by the end of the year with another 2 finished and ready to go. There will be 6 issues in all, and once we’ve got going, they will be published once a month. My deadline for inking the first issue only gets closer and closer… John and Tor will be helping track down the images I need for issue one, in between all their other goings on!
On another creative note, it looks like I’m going to be involved in a shoot for a Horror short later on this week. More details to come 🙂
Ooh, and I’ve finally downloaded the Firefox internet browser. It comes highly recommended so far…
Made a trek out to Farnham today to be a body for some students at the Surrey Institute of Art and Design. Nice to keep my hand in with the acting in front of the camera side of things. I also managed to learn how to roll a cigarette, which is something I have never attempted before (ah, my non-smoking innocence…). I ended up having to do it several times in the scene so I think I may be a pro now. Well as long as there isn’t too close up a shot of it then I may get away with claiming that!! Thankfully I didn’t have to smoke my handiwork – they weren’t looking for added comedy moments as far as I could tell…
Hoping to get back onto the Wet Shards case on Wednesday if all things go to plan…
