Winners at Sale Festival of Film

Last night Gordon Bennett and Block were winners at the first ever Sale Festival of Film at the Sale Waterside Arts Centre. It was a wonderful intimate venue and some great short films from local film-makers were exhibited. Thank you to Rachel Jones and the other organizers for a fantastic event. Looking forward to next year’s.

Teddy – Production Stills

Last Sunday I awoke at half three in the morning, spent an hour on the motorway from Manchester to Halifax and endured one of the strangest days imaginable photographing for a short film written and directed by Rebecca Papworth The cast and crew were fantastic, the weather, on the other hand, was random to say the least with a mix of sunshine, rain, wind, hail and plenty of grey clouds . . . it’s definitely May-time in England.

Rebecca won the UK Film Council/John Brabourne award for 2011. The aim of the award is to support a talented individual to achieve their goal in film. Rebecca put the award towards Teddy, a short film featuring an assortment of characters set against the backdrop of a car boot. Rebecca’s intention is to develop a feature from Teddy.

So big thank you to everyone involved and in particular to Dominique Molloy (who produced the short and with whom I’ve starred alongside as an extra not too long ago….)

Small Garden – Short Film – extra for the evening…

Yesterday I was asked a favour by my friend Dominique Molloy. She was producing a short film and asked if I would step in at the last minute and be a 1970s extra at a garden party. Given that last weekend I was playing a Bargain Booze supermarket clerk, I figured–what the hell. I took along my pocket-camera, the Canon S95, and grabbed some piccies.

The short is directed by Craig Vance. I asked a member of the crew, Ursula Haworth, to snap me in my 70s garb, I’m photographed with Dominique, who was also roped in at the last minute. Was a very good craic. 🙂
