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.

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.
