Okay so this is post two......so its been a very busy couple of weeks and i just haven't had a second to breathe let alone sit down to write the blog......will try harder in the future!!! Mind you being ill for a couple of days didn't help things....oh well much better now!
I have been out and about with various groups (I think it ended up being 4 in the end) of students from the NUCA filming their last projects of their second year....this leave them only one major film for their very last year....and good luck to them all!!! I have to say my highlight was spending the day running round a forest in Kings Lynn under the direction of Matthew Raven in what can only be described as a very surreal film with not a single word of dialog and probably rather worryingly only me in it!!!....I loved the script and for once I'm actually really looking forward to seeing a film with myself in it!! (normally I run a mile when anyone suggests watching something I'm in!! I guess that's the joy of the theatre...there is absolutely no way I can watch myself!) Hopefully the finished works will be put on you tube so I can link them all into a future blog....if you are bored enough to want to watch them!
Also last weekend I filmed a trailer for a film by Dr Sarcastic Pictures under the direction of Daniel Cotton. Follow Dr Sarcastic Productions on Facebook to keep up to date with the project....I believe Daniel will be posting photos from the shoot very soon. Dr Sarcastic Pictures
So if that wasn't enough to do already I have also been out to the theatre a couple of times over the last couple of weeks, firstly the see The Caretaker and the Norwich Playhouse and then only yesterday I went to see The 39 Steps in the Criterion Theatre in London's West End. I have to say that truly was a masterclass of comedy, a brilliant 4 hander with not a week link, dropped line, botched queue in sight, truly outstanding....a recommendation to all!
Also in other news.....I have just started rehearsing for MEUTRE, MYSTÈRE ET MUTILATION a play by Alan Huckle that will be premiered at the Maddermarket Theatre in Norwich between 20-24th September before being taken on tour during the rest of September and October....once the full tour has been worked out I'll let you know the dates and locations...in case you happen to be in the area!
And apart from having to work to earn some money that's pretty much everything covered for the last couple of weeks!
Catch you all soon....feel free to add any comments...
