Another week, another lurch in roughly the right direction

November 22, 2011 | Filed Under General News 

Firing on all cylinders already! Today, I received an e-mail from a splendid fellow I met on a screenwriting course recently. He offered to put me in touch with a director with multiple features and TV episodes under her belt, for discussion about a new feature she is planning. Watch this space…

I have also been asked by a couple of students to play a hit man in a short film they’re making. I’m at the stage now where I can be quite choosy about what unpaid work I do (as I have a completed showreel, plus more material to stick on it when I get some spare time), but their script is laudably spartan, I could do with getting one or two more credits by year’s end, and hell, it’s a chance to tart around with a sniper rifle on film, so why not? I’m just a big kid who likes to play with toy guns at heart…

By the end of the week, I’m hoping to get a sample piece of text recorded to send to a chap who publishes audiobooks, and maybe write a scenario for a music video that’s been rattling around in my head for years.  All this while doing a full week of freelancing for the BBC.
