This is what you wait for! The big screen! All those long months of waiting in between projects, long weeks of preparation and anticipation when you finally get a role, long LONG days of shooting, and of course, the 10 or so very quick minutes where you actually get to do something.....ALL THIS in the hopeful plight to some day be up on the big screen at multiplex screens all around the world! ....or in this case, the conference screen underneath Norwich Forum..... but hell, beggars can't be choosers right? Tomorrow is a special day for me, when live audiences will sit in front of TWO films that I performed in (I don't think that has happened before, not in the same day, on the same big screen!) and get this! I CANT EVEN BE THERE!!!??? HAHA the cruel joke of it all! Sometimes you just wonder don't you? Anyway.... on to the screenings:
At 3:30 will be Paul is Dead as part of the Emerging Talent selection. You can find out all about that in my recent blog post and even watch it online, so if you're a Beatles fan and you like a bit of comedy and even a bit of conspiracy.... this one is definitely worth checking out. It recently made the final shortlist for BIFA Best British Short so its developed a surprising amount of support for a student project. Director George Moore is DEFINITELY one to watch!

Then at 5:30 will be the East Anglian Selection where you can see local film makers work including E.N.S. (Embarrassing Name Syndrome) Starring myself and Carolyn Goodyear (who also wrote and directed it). Its a quirky comedy/mocumentary set in a self help group and contains some VERY SILLY humour and some very awkward characters. I play Mike - a nervous, beardy, sweater-wearing 'sufferer' with a profuse sweating problem. It was great fun to play, and I won't say much more about it at this point because I hope to be able to share it with you all one day when its available online.
