This is the closest Ive ever been to a serious award ceremony! We made it out of the final 300 and in to the Last 17 in the BIFA Best British Short category which I think is an incredible achievement. Check out the link below and watch the video trailer for the Longlist: you'll see a fair few clips of Paul is Dead (its the one where we're pratting about being The Beatles - im George Harrison!) https://www.bifa.film/news/best-british-short-film-long-list-2019/?fbclid=IwAR3gXkXem_Z8keGTRSgVNse3DBtiTPVBzldKpD_BJiMBXTEDPwBmNiTn55k
For me its very exciting because it means that hundreds of industry professionals have been watching us and casting their votes which is great exposure for the film makers but also for us as actors (although I doubt whether anyone would ever recognise me from this particular film!).
Unfortunately we didn't make the final nominations but it was cut down to a list of only 5 so competition is super tight! Anyway, any step forward is a step in the right direction and just to have been represented in that list of top quality short-film talent is a great achievement.

But I think as a celebration, I will throw some pictures your way that I never shared before;
first of all some cool screenshots and promo shots that almost make us look like real rockstars....
Now for some of the Official Artwork and Posters;
And finally, which for me is the icing on the cake....a few of my picks from the torrent of fan art that got made in response to the film! Thats definitely a first for me as well and certainly added to the warm glow around this project.
How cool is that?
I feel like the last few film projects Ive been involved in have been a real step up in my ambitions to become a professional screen actor. Its very exciting to be building a portfolio of work that I can be proud of and hopefully it will lead to some more great opportunities in the coming years!
Thats all for now Steemsters!
Big love and Ultimate Power to you all
