It was that time of the year and during one of my stints on a shortfilm (actually a fan feature film) I met a couple of people who were putting together a team to enter. My own efforts in the 2011 competition had not been one of my finer moments, but I was determined to join in with the mind to having fun, regardless of how stressful the experience became.
What a wonderful surprise the weekend had in store. By virtue of physical appearance and age, I landed the main role of a father who was teetering between sane and suicidal. Alongside a a talented cast of actors and a magical editing team, we went on to create a fairly good end film. I can see several clips going straight into my personal showreel.
And the added bonus, already new projects with this team in the works…
