Almost there!

Much, much too much water allowed to pass under the bridge since the last of these. Hey, I just forget!

The year has ended on as much of a flourish as it began… thankfully. A little quiet in the middle as you may have guessed.

Draft 2 of the feature film script THE PLATFORM has just been handed over, and I’m very happy with where it’s at at this point. Next stop, the (right) producer!

On a similar front, I’m script editing –  or will shortly be script editing – the Polish/Irish feature co-pro ‘Nocturne’, alongside Polish producer/director, Edward Porembny, and my ol’ mate Conor MacDermottroe. V much looking forward to that.

Recent acting? Well, back in the summer I’d the pleasure of working again with Hardy Pictures on the hugely-antcipated ’37 Days’, screening on the BBC in the new year as a significant part of the Beeb’s WW1 centenary commemorations. I play… King George V!

Enjoyed inhabiting the villainous persona of the Bailiff in Six Mile Productions’ Ulster Scots horror ‘Stumpy’s Brae’ which aired at Halloween… there was the (quite spectacularly different) part of Fr. Patrick in Partizan’s short film ‘Immaculate Misconception’… a fun outing alongside a host of fine actors in HITWG’s new radio commission ‘No. 2s’ , which cocks a timely satirical snook at the hypocritical shenanigans at Stormont… and even a ep of the Colin Bateman-penned, Stirling production for BBC NI, Scup.

Those are the headlines for the latter part of a piquant 2013… Do have a crackin’ Christmas and I’ll see (some of) y’all in ’14.
