Over the course of summer 2017 I made a concerted effort to ‘put myself out there’ and auditioned for quite a few short and student films.
Wrens was a script I wrote for Tony Hipwell of Grunt Productions, and I was thrilled that I got the chance to act in it as well.
I was thrilled to be cast as Mickey in Oli Forsyth’s boxing drama Cornermen, produced by Wildgoose Theatre and directed by Andy Love.
I love sci-fi, but I also love film noir. So when I saw the casting call go out for someone to play a noir detective, who gets to wear a hat, I was all over it.
Around this time of year, university students filming their final year projects tend to advertise for actors. I love sci-fi, so when this one came up I auditioned and got the part.
I was approached by Matthew Wignall of Off The Rock Productions to write a short script for an upcoming evening of five contemporary tales of the supernatural, each by a different writer and director.
After a few years working ‘behind the scenes’ for Redshirt Films, I finally got a chance to get in front of the camera.
My second foray into film acting – working with a fantastic team of York University students.
My first real stage acting role – for the rather excellent Off the Rock Productions – was in fact, three roles in one evening.
Film acting is something I’ve long been wanting to try, and thanks to Jamie McKeller from RedShirt Films, I had the opportunity.
