First up – my showreel is finally finished! Huge thanks to my flatmate Jamie for having all the necessary cables and bits and bobs to set me on the right track. The many long hours I spent sat alone in front of my computer have paid off and I’m very pleased with the final version. So, come one, come all – witness the glory!
(I’m a bit over excited. Can you tell?)
Secondly, ‘Small Talk‘ has won some kind of award. When I find out exactly what it was it’ll be put straight on my CV! It was screened again on the 15th of February at the NFT as part of Eat Our Shorts.
Glitch proved to be a sellout success at the Etcetera on the 11th and 12th. Thanks to all who came! I had some fantastic feedback and I’m planning on putting the show on again in London asap. More on that soon hopefully…
Prior to my Glitch performances, in the midst of the preparations, I found myself prancing around on Gawkagogo‘s stage at Torture Garden‘s New Year’s Eve bash. We started dancing at 9pm and went right through to 6am. (Well, I was more ‘shuffling’ for a number of hours.)
During the evening I inhabited the bodies of a Pig Faced Child:
and Hooters the Clown:
(You can really tell how tired we all were by this point!)
On another Hooters note – me and her (us) are heading up to Brum next month in Gawkagogo‘s extra large suitcase for the Candy Box Burlesque Valentine Spectacular at the Glee Club on the 11th. There’s going to be a live band to accompany shenanigans and everything. Looking forward to it!
After that I’m going to be involved in the 356 plays event at The Pleasance in Norf London. Not entirely sure how yet, but all shall be made clear…
Ooh, and Paul Garner‘s Monster Art Exhibition is still going on at Tusk Tattoo in town. The opening night was great fun! Photos n stuff here.
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.
Ok – first review of VEGA$M‘s London run can be found here at: thisislondon.com. There was a glorious large colour picture to go with it in yesterday’s Evening Standard which isn’t alongside the online copy, so I’ve stuck another one on today’s post 🙂
Also, in The Times today is an article on Brand X’s masterminds: Sarah Nield and Paul Garner, that’ll give you kind of an idea of where they’re coming from! Find that here.
Aaand – I did end up being part of the Naked News interview! The story was mainly all about Brand X so I kept in character and said nothing 😛 It’s not my brainchild – I’m just here for the ride!! When I know the broadcast date of the interview I’ll let you know…
You can now see me in my half a second, painful, bookish glory in Filament Pictures‘ ‘Figure of Speech’, filmed for the Cobra Vision competition, here (click on ‘September’ on that page if you can’t see it straight away…) Blink and you may miss me, but the whole thing’s worth a look.
If you think it’s the bees knees, then vote for it as your favourite of the month here (I’m guessing there’s not much time left on that one…)
Aaand – the London run of VEGA$M draws ever closer. Expect a full on revamp!
