My first real stage acting role – for the rather excellent Off the Rock Productions – was in fact, three roles in one evening.
Every year, Script Yorkshire hold a scriptwriting competition called Script Factor. It’s open to anyone, usually has a theme and this year I heard about a last minute cancellation and snuck onto the bill of the York event.
The set up was right. NaNoWriMo 2014 was upcoming, and I had no intention of writing another novel. It Looks Like You’re Writing a Letter, my first NaNo story, had been very well received, and pretty much anyone who wanted a copy had one, but I told myself I wouldn’t write another book unless I… Read More I’ve written another novel – and you’ll never read it
I thought I would share this short story with you. It’s an adult fable, in which a fox, a rabbit and a cricket discuss ethics and what it means to be happy. With swearing.
I was approached by Tony Hipwell of Grunt Productions to provide the score for his new comedy-action short The Supply Teacher, and jumped at the chance to work with him.
This project represented a number of firsts – my first time working with York’s Off The Rock Productions and my first stage acting role.
Film acting is something I’ve long been wanting to try, and thanks to Jamie McKeller from RedShirt Films, I had the opportunity.
I’ve long admired actors. Working ‘behind the scenes’ in the theatre and watching how they turn some pages of dialogue into almost-real people is magical to me.
Once again I was fortunate enough to be invited to work with Hedgepig Theatre. This time, on their adaptation of The Maids by Jean Genet, a twisted tale of two murderous sisters.
RedShirt films specialise in crazy, geek-culture romps filled with huge explosions and larger-than-life characters. For the finale of their series ‘Nights at the Round Table’, they came to me for a score to match.
