Man oh man were these guys technical wizards.

Really fantastic direction, camera work and a great location.

Cast in Short Film – COURTLY – Whaley Films

Just went and shot a short film called being produced by Whaley Films.

It’s just a small part of a guard, but it was a bucket of fun being involved with this production.

Nothing like a few death scenes!

The team at Whaley are thoroughly professional and a bunch of fun at the same time.

It was a real pleasure and I hope I get to work with them again sometime.

Thanks to Dale Norton, Ben Quick, and Leisl Lancaster

Cast in Griffith University Student Film – YELLOW

Excited to announce that I’ve been cast in the Griffith University short film YELLOW, in the role of Jimmy.

Jimmy is a fighter and a brawler, currently imprisoned for his crimes.

A father to Tommy, who he is trying to convince not to follow in his footsteps.

I’m really looking forward to shooting these scenes and to the finished product.

Slammed: The life and hard times of everyone you know.

Slam poetry, graffiti art, original music and a stellar cast slam together in an edgy new production not to be missed.

Written by: Stefanie Brooke Harper 
Directed by: John Peek

Set in a fictitious but familiar contemporary Australian high school amidst some troubled teens, Slammed follows the story of Jake Ryan – a downtrodden 15 year old with a tough life. We soon learn, however, that Jake is not the only one getting ‘slammed.’ As the lives and hardships of those around him continue to collide, it becomes clear that if you scratch the surface or stop to look behind the mask, there are many hard times and struggles in the life of, well… everyone you know.

Endorsed by industry experts and supported by the One Punch Can Kill campaign, ‘Slammed’ offers delightful yet challenging insight into our youth, our society and ourselves.

Tickets are limited and selling fast!

Matilda Award Nomination – Best Supporting Actor

Very proud to find out that I have been nominated for a Matilda Award for Best Supporting Actor for my work in Spamalot.

It’s quite an honour to be recognised for this as I was very proud of my work in Spamalot, and to be recognised and nominated out of a cast that was spectacular, is quite frankly, more than a surprise.

I had a terrific fun in this production and getting to work closely with Frank Woodley, Simon Gallaher, Jon English, Julie Anthony, Dash Kruk, Stephen Hirst and Shaun McCallum was a real thrill.

This was my first professional production with Harvest Rain Theatre Company and it was a very rewarding experience. I highly encourage all to audition and support this company as they try to establish a professional Musical Theatre company in Queensland.

SPAMALOT itself is nominated for Best Musical or Cabaret. So hopefully it gets the recognition it deserves.

Once again, completely stoked about the nomination and thanks to all those who came and saw the show.

 

** UPDATE **

Didn’t win the Best Supporting Actor award – but still a little overwhelmed just to be nominated – only 4 nominations after all.

SPAMLOT went on to win Best Musical or Cabaret – so thrilled and excited for the cast and crew and all at HRTC.
