Back in the swing of things.

Posted by Alan Medcroft on Tuesday, September 17, 2013,
Over the last few weeks, I've been auditioning, working, reading, researching and organising like nobody's business.
Today's main task was a sitting for some new head shots and I hope to be able to post some new pictures on the website very soon.

My main hope is that I didn't look as tired as I felt after a late shoot yesterday for a national tv campaign for a major holiday company. The advert script and story-boards looked good, but when I saw the leading actor's prosthetics, I was blown away ...

Geek chic

Posted by Alan Medcroft on Thursday, August 22, 2013,
A deliberately quiet couple of weeks is coming to an end with a fun job as a geek on a date! How long the date will last is debatable, since the online picture he posted was a little more handsome than yours truly... who said, "not too difficult!"?
Off to London to film this for a commercial tomorrow, so more details will follow in time.
My top two auditions where I "knew" for certain that I'd got the part as I left the room were this one and another geek role for IPC Media. Maybe it's typecast...

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...

London 2012 - The latest Olympic hopeful... ME!

Posted by Alan Medcroft on Wednesday, July 11, 2012,
A couple of weeks ago, I spent a great day with the guys from Shadowplay, filming a lovely little viral. It's not available to view yet, but was such a fun shoot.
I got to live out those moments of sporting magic, as I stepped up for the Olympic high jump, with a surprising outcome!
Thanks to all involved and I will post the link to the finished film when it is available.
