Psychedelic documentaries and surreal TV shorts

November 20, 2017
The last couple of months have seen rehearsals for a project coming up next year as well as the usual flow of voiceover work.
Additionally, I've completed a couple of filming projects where it was lovely to have been invited back to work with people again - I must have done something right the first time!
I worked again with the Calling The Shots folks for Channel Four's Random Acts project in a love surreal short about the impact of everyday noises and commotion on people who perceive the world differently and a creative way to deal with those pesky noises and their creators!
Latterly, I was reunited with two people I'd worked with on different projects earlier this year to join them on set of a kind of reconstruction segment for a documentary about a Pink Floyd roadie and his psychedelic breakfast in a wonderful 1970s kitchen setting.
All great fun and very rewarding.


 

Walking holidays and leading cults

August 14, 2017
The last month has seen me involved in the first of two music videos I've been signed up to - playing an odd cult leader with misogynistic tendencies! I have always said I enjoy playing against my own character so don't be too worried. I'm greatly looking forward to the finished video as the song is a good one. I'm not allowed to tell you the name of the artist as yet, I'm afraid.

Amongst other things, I was also thrilled to be playing another comedic character for Telling Tales Films in their...

Quiet!

February 6, 2017
For someone who often makes a living as a voiceover actor, it is interesting, if not ironic that I've been involved in many film projects where I don't say a word! From the music overlaid "Whatever the Weather" which showed on the giant screens in Bristol's Millennium Square over the festive period and popped up on local news, to my latest two projects.

I recently completed shooting for the Kodak Nahemi Awards "Room with a View" with a range of grunting noises in a future dystopian world of le...

Multiple me!

October 19, 2016
After a busy few months, including working away in Norway over the summer, I've been spending a lot of time in the green screen studio of the wonderful Band Films, both directing other actors and more recently in an on screen role about emotional literacy.
I'm very much looking forward to the finished emotions film as it features not only a little bit of juggling (always fun!), but also multiple versions of me. I play the role of presenter and also various versions of me as wonderful caricatur...

Languages

May 11, 2016
A chunk of April was very enjoyably taken up for me to record with talented folk in their native language. As luck would have it I was asked to record and edit three voice actors speaking the three foreign languages I love the most: French, German and Spanish. I had already provided the voice of the English script and it was lovely to be able to help my client with direction in languages of which he had a limited understanding (and one he claimed to know nothing of at all!) at the same time a...

Wig Wednesday 25th May 2016 - CLIC Sargent

March 15, 2016
A busy February and March have left little time for blog updates. I would, however, like to share detail of a wonderful project in which I had a small involvement having still shots done for CLIC Sargent's upcoming Wig Wednesday fundraising.

Photos of me looking rather ridiculous can be seen in various places and at the Wig Shop on CLIC Sargent's site. If you spot me in some random corner of the internet or in print, do let me know!

If you don't know about the work of CLIC Sargent, here's a bri...

Social media and acting

January 17, 2016
2016 has started off really well with lots of opportunities to perform and to work on the production side too. I have been sourcing actors to work with me on different projects for on-screen and live action work. Plus, I've been able to act out various roles such as a quite ridiculous TV interviewer and an even more ridiculous tree-hugger! 
One thing that got me thinking recently though, was how I've been able to pick up new clients and re-connect with old clients through the online world and ...

Merry Christmas and a happy new year!

December 23, 2015
A quick sign off for the end of 2015. I've enjoyed a busy December, travelling north and south, crying, laughing and even having a mildly psychotic episode - all in the name of the characters I played of course! I've also been behind the camera again for a lovely client, as well as being touched by some folks' generosity of spirit and riches.
I'm looking forward to an exciting 2016 and to sharing some of the fruits of my labours.
Merry Christmas to you and I wish you a wonderful year!
