My feature film acting debut, Chestersberg from RedShirt Films is the full-length story started in award-winning short The Book Club.
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.
I was thrilled to win one of the main roles in Stavros Ladikos’ short film A Conversation. Stavros was a second-year film student at York University and his work is visually stunning.
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.
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.
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.
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.
