Here’s a turn-up! I discovered that “Stargirl”, the short I made with Pixie Films in 2017, is now available on Amazon Prime. A good opportunity to view it on a TV monitor, rather than a PC or mobile. Did you spot it?
Of course, if you’re not a ‘Prime’ member, you can still see it for free on Vimeo. So much the better if you have Vimeo on your TV.
In November of 2018, StarGirlreceived its official online release after a year on the festival circuit.
A short film shot in 2015 by writer/director James Price of Pixie Films, it’s a stark, SciFi western, set against the forbidding isolation of the Herefordshire countryside and centres on a disillusioned sheep farmer, Stan, played by me, who meets a female alien. It is by turns poignant and poetic, comic and absurd, sinister and thrilling; a very compelling 20 minutes.
Close to the Enemy, a seven-part thriller written and directed by Stephen Poliakoff, received its broadcast premiere at the end of 2016. It is essentially a thriller, set against the backdrop of covert operations in post-war London. The cast includes Jim Sturgess, Freddie Highmore, Charlotte Riley, Phoebe Fox, August Diehl, Robert Glenister, Alfie Allen, Charity Wakefield, Angela Bassett, Lindsay Duncan, Alfred Molina… and me, in the role of a sour-faced Maître D’. Have a look at my 2019 showreel in the Media section to get a glimpse. The series is available on a 3-DVD set via Amazon.co.uk and, of course, from other reputable retailers.
