Remember, directly, or indirectly, everything we write is for someone, The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the ones worth suffering for
Here’s my advice for anybody out there who is creative and scared, Shout until they fucking hear you. And then shout even louder.
I have a question. Why as an art industry are we still being subsidies instead of being invested in? As an industry we are bringing so much revenue into this country, we are exported all over the world, economically and socially we are the strongest growing business in Britain. So why are we not treated as an asset of growth and development?
Inside the heart of each and every one of us there is a longing to be understood by someone who really cares. When a person is understood, he or she can put up with almost anything in the world.
So the National Theatre just celebrated 50 years. There's a huge British movement with British Actors, Musicians, Directors, Writers, Dancers, Creatives etc…making their stamp all over the world. Yet the Torys are axeing Drama as a GCSE, Are you seriously kidding me? I did Drama at school and am so proud of my qualification which helped to give me the confidence and inspired me to take a chance in life but not just a chance...but a second chance.
I fall in love with people’s passion. The way their eyes light up when they talk about the thing they love and the way they fill with light.
Every business is like Hollywood or the UK film business..amibition corrupts and it is also the major ingrediant to GREATNESS.
Some seem to get a lil more luck than others when our cards are dealt when it comes to what pleases the eye but am glad my job takes me past that as we are always looking for all shapes, sizes, ages and so I don't discriminate, In my world everyone is beautiful and a gift to the world and all the luck in the world can't give you heart and thats is a blessing which I love to see most in people.
Probably the most poignant advice I have ever been given, still resounds in me today: "When you feel fear, it's a signal that you are closer to the truth, a signal to go deeper"
Through my years of experience and travels overseas and abroad, I have gained the knowledge, training and versitility of being able to conform to the many facets needed in this life. My experience within foreign countries has allowed me to expand my horizon, giving me the passion to continue on my journey as I discover new traditions, cultures and way of life. Confident that this will enhance my ability as a man to be open to the wonderful world of discoveries and adventure.
God will guide us through the night, for we walk by faith and not by sight.
When I have kids I'm gonna make them watch the movie 2012 and tell them I survived that.
When this blog hits 88 words a hour your going to see some serious shit...
Always seek to enrich, enpower and love the people in your life, for each one is unique and beatifuly made. Let everyone know how important they are to you. Life is short and the end may be sonner than you think. A couple of years back I took my life and stepped of the precipice…, and I am still falling, it is both invigorating and frightening, all at the same time. I’d recommend it to everyone.
Since I was a child, I have always loved film. Everything about film. Acting, directing, screenplay, cinematography, film score - You name it, I love it!
You will also find my blog apart from film shows my love of Norfolk, the Ocean, my first love Scuba Diving and the Stars, When I was eight years old I worked out how much I would weigh on each of the planets in our solar system. For example on Mars I weighed 3 and Jupiter 28 stone.
It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours.
It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.
Am quite old fashioned and I know life has always been kind to me. I have had my fair share of luck but its the struggles we learn the most from. I hope I have to strive everyday because I learn more that way.
Follow your dreams because they never lie to you and share the joy that lives and breathes from you.
I like people with depth, I like people with emotion, I like people with a strong mind, an interesting mind, a twisted mind, and also someone that can make me smile.
From birth, man carries the weight of gravity on his shoulders. He is bolted to earth. But man has only to sink beneath the surface and he is free.
Jacques Yves Cousteau
I guess the real fact of the matter is, we don’t know what tomorrow is going to bring and the only thing we really have is right now. So, don’t stay angry for too long and learn to forgive. Love your friends and family with all your heart. Have fun and live your life the way you want to live it. Most of all, don’t worry about people that don’t like you and enjoy the ones that do.
I was never really insane except upon occasions when my heart was touched
Sorry not been vocal today but let’s just say things are MANIC having had our Vampire film pulled a day forward and so having to re-book now for Monday instead but hey it’s what sometimes happens and so that’s what we do. That and a meeting for our other new film just now, the modeling job in Dubai, 3 commercials already under our belt along with the meeting for a tragic but real life story and our own ‘Homelessness’ film going into pre-production. All that and the registration of over 1200 supporting artists that have now all been collated and databased, can honestly say this is the busiest start to a year ever for us. Will continue on to the extras casting this evening and probably be again burning the midnight oil. Will contact those and the lucky people for filming on Monday in due course but with costumes important on this one this is our priority at the moment.
Hope everyone had a positive and productive Weds and are having a lovely evening. OK It’s food time, have to keep hydrated and strength up.
PS Anyone near Hampstead got a 2012/2013 phone book for a magician friend of ours, it can be a older one though. He needs if for a show on Friday evening, he can come pick it up and even show you a few tricks which are amazing and trust me having performed with him and with us at ‘Broken Film’ due to make his Magician promo reel soon I know, let me know if you have one. Thanks very much.
So we sent out the brief to our supporting artists last night via our new and revamped way of handling the applications for 2014, this is something Johnny designed and set up from scratch which enables super quick feedback which is a priority when placing extras in TV & Film and we are please to say that within 2hrs of going live we cast all the supporting artist for the film.
Thanks to all that got back to us to be in this new and exciting Vampire Horror from James Harris, Ben Jaques and Mark Lane the team behind so many films we have successfully completed with them before,
Those that have been successful have now been confirmed for the film and sorry if you didn’t get on this one but with our brand new other feature starting on the 20th we hope to see you on set with us soon.
Nightcapper…….Done and signed off in record time
We have had a phenomenal start to 2014 with our first feature film starting next week on the 20th January, 3 commercials casting under our belt and today we have had the option of another film from the makers of ‘Cockneys vs Zombies, Green Street 3, Screwed, Soundtrack to Sixteen and The Anomaly all of which we supplied the supporting artists to.
The next film from ‘The Tea Shop & Film Company’ is called ‘Nightcapper’ and its basically ‘High Fidelity’, meets ‘Grosse Point Blank’…with Vampires.
It’s written and starring Dan Clarke from the BBC series ‘How not to live your life’ and in a nut shell it is a black comedy which follows Dan Clarke’s character David, a Shoreditch Vampire slayer who is looking for love and a way out of this crazy world he’s found himself employed in. Once David meets Erica he thinks he’s found the ‘one’ and will do anything to be with her and leave the life behind. His boss Marcus is the head of the countrywide Vampire detection agency and won’t let David leave the agency and will make sure he doesn’t, using any means necessary.
Apart from Dan Clarke The director is Jamie Stone the up and coming director with ridiculously awesome links to the British Film Institute and National Film and Television School (NFTS), he’s quite literally their ‘golden boy’.
Jamie last year finished a Short Film called ‘Orbit Ever After’ which has just been BAFTA nominated this year and has also been Oscar long listed, its mostly practically made with a few VFX shots that Jamie can do himself, hard to believe when you watch it but its true.
So does this sound like something you would like to come along and be one of our supporting artist to. If yes then get in touch because we are looking for people for next Tuesday 21st January.
Looking for men and women for Commercial.
Looking for poker players for online poker commercial.
Payment £140.00 for fitting, £300.00 per day to include overtime, TV, VOD, Internet usage, etc

You must be available for a fitting this week and then shoot dates 17th and 18th January.

We will be in touch with those on our books that we feel are suitable but if this sounds like you then please apply www.thelynchmob.webs.com/apply
Good question if you have never been part of an agency. The quick answer is you don’t. We cast people who we think would first be good for that extras role and secondly we rotate our supporting artists to make sure everyone on our books gets involved.
Hope that helps.
