Walking holidays and leading cults

Posted by Alan Medcroft on Monday, 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...

Multiple me!

Posted by Alan Medcroft on Wednesday, 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...

Life goes on...

Posted by Alan Medcroft on Wednesday, November 25, 2015,
A wonderful few months since the last update, with the British summer now a dim and distant memory.

I've kept busy with roles varying from multi-accented voiceovers and strangely attired photo shoots to the seriousness of playing a terminal patient. I've thoroughly enjoyed all the challenges that have been thrown at me. There was also the humorous distraction of a friend spotting my name in a local newspaper article in his favourite kebab shop and posting a photo to Facebook.

Since the summer,...

South Korea - Take Two

Posted by Alan Medcroft on Thursday, July 23, 2015,
It fills me with immense pleasure that for the second time, I can say that a 48-hr Sci-Fi film by Matt Harris-Freeth, in which I play a small role, has been selected to be part of The Seoul International Short Film Festival.
The Place of My ?yola-link-is-coming=trueBirth has made the official selection list.
In 2013, the first film I acted in for Matt, The Port, was also selected for this festival.

The Bigger Picture

Posted by Alan Medcroft on Monday, April 6, 2015,
Recently I've been involved in casting, producing and directing some films for a corporate client. It's a great insight into all the processes that go into making any film - I'd recommend it to all actors.
I've done a lot of this work before with voiceover production, but there are so many more factors to consider in film; even something as simple as organising when stuff is going to happen becomes harder when you have to get crew and cast together on the same day.
- Voiceover? Simple, when is...

Wizzy little film...

Posted by Alan Medcroft on Thursday, October 2, 2014,
September has seen me undertake several corporate role plays, filming promos and playing both a Nazi AND a British soldier from World War II, amongst other things...
I also would like to share the finished film about the brilliant work of Designability in Bath, who provide wonderful Wizzybug electric wheelchairs, specifically for under fives to families who need them. A wonderful charity, who deserve all the support and donations they can get.

Bad singing and the prosthetic neck

Posted by Alan Medcroft on Monday, August 5, 2013,
The last week has been eventful, as always. From comedy singing with headphones on - cover your ears folks! - to getting soaked in "blood" that seeped out of a gaping wound in my neck as I was bound to a chair in a disused warehouse...
First up was shooting three character scenarios with Jon Cambourne to advertise a new music service to be launched across Europe. This meant learning songs and singing embarrassingly, with headphones on, which is guaranteed to put a smile on your face, if not pe...

Cut throat voiceovers...

Posted by Alan Medcroft on Thursday, July 18, 2013,
The hot weather endures and my work has continued apace and been busy, busy, busy all the way.
I have been recording many voiceovers from my home studio which can get a bit hot and sweaty in this untypical British summer. I'm also very much looking forward to working on a forthcoming short film, in which my throat will be cut and will bleed profusely...!
Aside from that, I've had a lot of live action roles and writing meetings as well as developing several ideas, so watch this space.

Will and the Worry Dolls

Posted by Alan Medcroft on Wednesday, June 5, 2013,
After a recent meeting with London-based filmmaker, Max Clendaniel, I re-watched a short film from a couple of years ago in which I played a yellow-clad worry doll. Will and the Worry Dolls is about the monotony of routine life and a bunch of brightly-coloured and slightly eccentric worry dolls who decide to come into the real world after years livening up Will's dreams.

You can see the film here! 

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. I had forgotten how funny it is.

Max has recently returned f...

The Port - SciFi 48 Hour Film Challenge

Posted by Alan Medcroft on Friday, April 26, 2013,
I am very proud of my recent involvement in a short film made by talented director, Matt Freeth.
The film was made for SciFi London's 48 hour film challenge, where participating teams have to come up with a 3-5 minute short film over the space of two days and must include a certain prop and line of dialogue.
The resulting film, The Port was unfortunate not to be included on the final shortlist to select the winner, however, it was on the long list and has been selected by the organisers who wan...

CineMe

Posted by Alan Medcroft on Tuesday, March 12, 2013,
I don't think it's connected to the fact that I talked about them in my last blog, but CineMe have selected some projects in which I acted to be screened at this month's event on 26th March in Bristol!
They are going to be showing two comedy adverts to give the audience some laughs and also a more harrowing short film by the talented director, Luke Andrews. I am hugely looking forward to it.

Inspiring short films and a recent voiceover

Posted by Alan Medcroft on Wednesday, January 30, 2013,
2013 is now in full swing and yesterday evening I went to a Bristol short film event called CineMe. CineMe is a fantastic night of short films with introductions by the film-makers and a few words from the host, James Ewen. Every event I've been to has been inspiring and the level of talent of those involved never ceases to amaze me. Screening a series of short films allows the night to contain animation, comedy, drama, music videos and there is always something for everyone as the organisers...
