CHECK OUT OUR LATEST CHARITY IDEA BELOW, TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE. THANK YOU.
Some people bring out the worst in you, others bring out the best, and then there are those remarkably rare, addictive ones who just bring out the most. Of everything.
They make you feel so alive,
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.
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.
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
So hope you have enjoyed your Sunday everyone, We have ended up having a very busy day on set and haven’t had a chance to get to my emails to see those extras that want to be involved next Saturday and the ‘Masquerade Ball’ scenes in fact I haven’t sat down all day except for this little charity stunt earlier, that said all the cast and crew on ‘The Puppet Master’ are working so hard to get the shots we need before we finish which is going to be in the early hours but will check on those wanting to come along and respond.
We have just broke for a late supper at 11pm and another 20hr day looms on this as we are now scheduled to finish at around 3am and then am off to be on set in Southampton for 7am. Personally I am enjoying not only the intensity of todays filming on location in Clacton but doing something I had promised a lot of people in the shape of the Ice Bucket Challenge.
Sorry you can’t see the actual footage here, I thought about YouTube but just haven’t had the time to upload it or get on my computer for that matter except for my quick and earlier post but I have promised you all so you can view it on our ‘Just Giving’ page where ‘Tumblr Autopost’ will carry on posting the link to our page every week or you can view it on ‘Facebook’ by hitting the link below.
Enjoy, i feeling a lot of you will but who have I nominated?
I will do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge today with the cast and crew of ‘The Puppet Master’ if I get a total of £30.00 for our recent ‘Sleep out for Crisis’
If we raise £30.00 TODAY, I will post it later TODAY.
Thanks very much.
From the UK you can text ‘Send98 £3’ to the number 70070 from your mobile to donate to Crisis.
We are breaking for lunch at 2pm today and its 11am now so thats a tenner an hour, a total of £30.00. If we can’t raise that am not doing it.
If outside the UK or prefer to donate online please use the link and see if we got the 30 quid we wanted.
Had three separate phone calls this morning already, the first wanting to know if I still had my ice cream shop on the coast, another asking what time the boating lake I used to run is open till and a third asking if I could come down the south coast to sell them some swag which is from my time supplying the showman of Great Britain. lol Sad to say I could have earned a few quid today if I still had any one of those business’s but to be honest I would rather earn less doing what I do now and be happy.
So with the schedule and call sheets locked for the next 5 days, i remember thinking lets hope all runs smoothly on ‘The Puppet Masters’ looking forward to this one but first I had the premiere of ‘The Guvnors’ to attend to Wednesday evening in London.
First to arrive at the London premiere was kick boxer Barrington Patterson (right) who stars in the film and his guests,
Date night: Pixie Lott was rocking the double denim when she attended the Guvnors premiere at the Odeon cinema in Covent Garden with her boyfriend Oliver Cheshire.
Model and presenter Laura Whitmore added some style to proceedings in a autumnal coat and ripped Paige jeans.
Cricketer Kevin Pietrson
Cricketer Freddie Flintoff showed his support.
Popcorn fight: (left to right) Jordan Stephens, Charley Merkell, Harley Sylvester and David Essex with director Gabe Turner have some fun.
Harley’s Rizzle Kicks bandmate Jordan Stephens (left) was by his side.
Firm friends: Harley, who stars in the movie, also posed with comic actor Jack Whitehall.
For me the best dressed man was all the women’s favourite David Essex, who plays Mickey Snr in the movie was suited and booted. Just look at his eyes, he’s still got it.
Was good to be out with Jimmy Carr, Jumayn Hunter, David Essex, Barrington Patterson, Doug Allen, Kevin Pieterson, Real Cass Pennant, Rizzle Kicks, Charley Merkell, Freddie Flintoff, Lorraine Stanley, Richard Blackwood, Dorian Jerome Simpson, Tony Denham, Nick Nevern, Jack Whitehall, Brady Powell, Vaz Blackwood, Danny Potts, Pixie Lott and my ole mate Martin Compston last night. I even got a little snap of me with Lorraine Stanley sister who I placed in the film Doreen, #NameDropper
So on to Day 1 of ‘The Puppet Masters’
After the screening of ‘The Guvnors’ last night and after party it would of been easier to press the button to end all civilisation as we know it than press the button to silence my alarm 4:30am this morning giving I didn’t get in till 2:30am lol. But thanks to this stunning location just outside Clacton and me forgoing the set catering and the invention of KFC two piece chicken meal am here on set and feeling lucky to do something I love.
Day one had me smiling here on set in Clacton on Sea and licking my fingers.
Me after a 20hr day and on the last set up of the day on ‘The Puppet Masters’ #Action
Day 2 of ‘The Puppet Master”
You know your day is going to get better when BAFTA award winner and old mate Adam Deacon starts following you on Twitter.
So the sun shone out and with that and a couple of slices of last nights late night chilli pizza and ‘Kiss FM’ we was off and running on day 2 at Mercury Theatre Colchester.
This horror from Heather Thompson can be described as a supernatural macabre horror with blurs the lines between the shadow world and what is real. We are looking for extras for the Masquerade ball next Saturday in London and will be lots of fun, get in touch if you would like to join us.
So after another long day we just wrapped at 9pm and will just say Its nights such as the London premiere the other evening on ‘The Guvnors’ film that long after the work is done and one forgets that those long days and nights spent was worthwhile and over the last couple days that came as a fond reminder of how incredibly lucky those that love what they do, included myself really are. Gives a boost that for me inspires and is immersible.
When am dead bury me in one of my fave filming locations,
I fucking love my job so much and hope to work for many years to come.
Looking forward to day 3 tomorrow Saturday.
I helped a lady with her bag in the underground on my way to the premiere on Weds and her young son said did he help you or you helped him mum?
The mother said no to her son he helped me. As I carried on walking he said “No mum you helped him” and at that moment I thought wow he’s right.
Because In giving both parties help each other. The one being helped feels gratitude and the one helping feels the reward. Sometimes the smallest actions bring the biggest heart smiles. Never underestimate the smallness of your actions it could be the bigness of tomorrow
Have a nice day & do something that will make your heart SMILE.
So for tomorrow Tuesday 26th August in Worcester Park, London those people joining us have been contacted but here is a reminder to those selected.
American accent people, call time is 10:00 for 2 hours, payment £60.00
Extras as Paramedics, call time is 18.00 for 2 hours. payment £60.00
So with that now cast we will continue to contact guys and girls that we need for later on in the week for filming in Worcester Park, Aldershot and also Clacton, Wivenhoe and Colchester, Essex on the two productions we have running.
3 weeks ago today it would of been a mum who we all knew birthday, the late Queen mother but today its the best mum in the worlds birthday. Mine.
Happy Birthday mum.
Thanks everyone, I have just got back from a fantastic day and evening out in London at Secret Cinema but from the emails I have received it looks like there are some generous people out there and I have reached the personal target I set out to raise a few quid for the homeless charity ‘Crisis’ and from the messages am still getting the awareness campaign was a brilliant success too.
Our new team target was smashed through the roof with the recent donations and my own target met too so thank you everyone.
So its 11pm and am safe but shattered but wanted to say a huge thanks and just hope those sleeping rough on the streets of London are safe tonight too.
