At the start of 2013, I acted in a short film called “Life Like Mine”. As the year draws to a close, then, it’s a great time to announce that the film has now garnered not 1 but 3 awards at the Angel Film Awards at the Monaco Film Festival.
The awards, now in their 11th year, are among the most prestigious on the short-film circuit. These three awards are a testament to the hard work and talent of the crew and I’m delighted to share in their success.
What a lovely way to end the year.
And what an interesting year it’s been. I’ve continued my successful partnership with Yorkshire-based Rough Magic Theatre, performing a number of street shows with the company and starring in their brand new theatre piece “Officer Buckle and Gloria”.
I’ve also spent a good chunk of the year training my screen performance with the help of Beverley Keogh in Manchester, as well as auditioning for a number of shows, among which was a brand new BBC sitcom.
The feature film that I shot last year, The Rise, has also had its cinema release and is now out on DVD.
My work with the local Equity branch has also been rewarding, with recent discussions and efforts delivering real benefits for performers in the region.
All in all, a fascinating time. What will 2014 bring?
Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, all!
