Wow! Been away from here for a while

Crumbs! What's been happening in the last 2 years while I haven't posted anything?

Well, firstly, I've been recovering from looking after my mum which was very difficult indeed towards the end as she succumbed more and more to her dementia. I didn't know that the brain physically shrinks with vascular dementia, but it does. And the effects of that are not pretty.

So I can say thankfully, for her, she passed away on 2 Apr 2013. Which was a bit difficult.

Then, on 15 Feb 2014, my brother Norman passed away suddenly. At 2310 he was sitting on the sofa at his partner's home talking about things and at 2314 he was dead. A coronary artery burst due to an aneurism and his blood emptied out of it into his pericardium. So I'm now the only surviving member of the nuclear family I grew up in and it feels a little strange. I wonder what the future holds.

Work wise, not a lot has been happening as my foot injury has somewhat decreased my mobility but I did shoot a film last year called The Journey of Alfred Small, playing Alfred, but unfortunately it doesn't look as if it's going to see the light of day. I'm shooting another short film this month (Aug 14) called The Miracle in which I play Rabbi Joseph Vogel. Should provide some more footage for the showreel at least.

Apart from that, I'm starting a new business as a distributor for the Utility Warehouse doing something I absolutely love which is reducing people's outgoings on their shopping and household bills. It's a terrific business and most enjoyable because I get to meet all kinds of positively minded people which is a great benefit. Apart from that, it has the potential to do a lot of people a lot of good and earn me a good living into the bargain. Please feel free to have a look at:
If you have any questions, just ask. I'm always delighted to help.

Well, I could witter on but I'll leave it there for the time being. It;ll guarantee I have something to say next time.

Keep safe and best wishes.

More on Snowman

Well, Snowman was not fortunate enough to make the final 10 in Open Film's Get It Made competition so no $500k to make the feature.

HOWEVER!! All is NOT lost!!

The feature film is still going to be made but we're just going to have to fund it differently.

If you would like to get involved and receive anything from a free copy of the film through set visits right up to an Executive Producer credit at the end of the film, just go to:

For a synopsis of the film presented by Stephen Reynolds, the writer/director, go to:

All the best, everybody! :-)

Exciting times - and the tension's building!!!

My short movie Snowman is in competition on in the 2nd Get It Made competition. Voting ends at midnight ECT 31 Jan 2011 (0500 GMT 1 Feb 2011) and we're up to win US$500,000 !!!

The address you need to watch it and vote is:

Just sign up (1 min) and click on the right hand star (5*) to vote and I'll be pathetically grateful.

It's not just for me, it's mainly for Stephen Reynolds the director, writer, editor, producer and everything else you care to name. He's a huge talent and deserves this break so much so let's get behind some genuine, young, British film-making talent and enjoy watching him make all the fantastic movies his talent and dedication will bring about.

I'm delighted to be asked to take part in a new short movie. I'm playing a disillusioned police chief on the cusp of erring towards the dark side. Exciting! I'll tell you more when I have it. Great director, great composer, really good story and a good deal of action.

It's being made to show to potential investors in the making of the full length feature. Watch this space for news on how to get on board!

New Short Movie REDUNDANT

My new short movie, Redundant, made with a very talented group of students from the University of the Creative Arts, Farnham Campus, has been nominated for the Royal Television Society's Best Student Fiction movie award.

Excerpts can be viewed here:

It's recommended for viewing by 15+ only due to violent and sexual content and very strong language.
