2019!

Posted by Alan Medcroft on Tuesday, January 8, 2019,
As we progress into 2019, I reflect on the new clients and new experiences gained in 2018, from cartoon voices on Nickelodeon's Nick Jr and characterful voices for audiobooks to presenting about cultural awareness around the world and photoshoots to appear on the back of buses!

I look forward to a 2019 filled with just as many exciting projects and new friends to be made. If you're reading this I hope we can maybe find opportunities to work together this year and make even more great memories!...

Cartoon versions of me - Sunny Day on Nickelodeon and short film, Puppet

Posted by Alan Medcroft on Wednesday, March 7, 2018,
This year has seen various jobs and projects, with two of the most interesting ending up with me in cartoon form.

Firstly, my voice has been lent to a character who looks nothing like me! I have been voicing Timmy in Nickelodeon's new series Sunny Day as well as a few additional voices.

Sunny Day videos can be viewed here on Nick Jr's website. The show is about a group of girls and their dog who run a beauty salon and play in a band together! It's aimed at 4-7 year olds.

Episode one has been bro...

Social media and acting

Posted by Alan Medcroft on Sunday, 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 ...

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,...

US television debut!

Posted by Alan Medcroft on Wednesday, August 5, 2015,
It may only be a local channel in the San Francisco Bay Area, but I am still very excited to have had not one but two of my short films shown on US television.
With many thanks to Matt Harris-Freeth and the rest of the talented crew on both The Port and Silent Phantom.

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.

A Trilogy Over 48 Hours.

Posted by Alan Medcroft on Saturday, April 25, 2015,
It has been a great pleasure over the last three years to be involved in three short films helmed by Matt Harris-Freeth for the Sci-Fi London 48 Hour Challenge. My parts have been great fun each time, twice have included the vital line given to show it wasn't knocked up six months ago, and my roles have varied from hologram, to doctor and an arrogant sweary PR guy. Each year, I've dived onto set for a short time, shot my scenes and then sat back and waited for the finished film. The rest of t...

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.

End of summer summary...

Posted by Alan Medcroft on Sunday, August 24, 2014,
After a busy summer of short film projects, voiceover and various live acting jobs for corporates and parties, I'm looking forward to continuing through to the end of the year with a few exciting jobs lined up.
During July, I was filming in Brussels for a fun commercial produced by Monodot for Hello Bank and directed by the very lovely Roderick Fenske. The results of this fun trip and shoot can be seen here.
The commercial aired on TV in Belgium and was voiced in French and Dutch.

Very quick update

Posted by Alan Medcroft on Tuesday, July 1, 2014,
No time for a detailed update, I'm afraid. However with editing still happening on the Wizzybug promo I acted in with paralympic 100m and 200m medal winner Ben Rushgrove and the wonderful Daisy, as well as a couple of short films about to begin shooting soon, there should be more news to follow in a little while...

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.
