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
