Make It Happen

Film Producing in Wales

Why Are You Trashing My Scene?

with one comment

As anticipated, the forthcoming London Olympics will have an effect on the British film industry – Screen International is reporting that the UK Film Council is facing a $33m (£22m) cut in lottery funding over the next five years. In Wales, the Film Agency has already had a 21% cut in funding, attributed to various factors, including the London Olympics and declining sales of lottery tickets, as previously reported in Screen.

But it’s Easter, and instead of doom and gloom, here’s an egg-related piece of footage to cheer you up. I’m not an actor, and to prove it I even have an ‘E’ grade at A level Drama (though the highest grade anyone in my class received was a ‘D’ and the teacher mysteriously ‘retired’ that summer), but for some unknown reason, I was the first choice to play Derek Entwhistle, host of the Armchair Shopping Network, in Avoiding Christian Bale.

Paul has uploaded some of the footage, much of which will make it into the final cut of the film, displayed on a televsion screen in the background of a couple of scenes.

Watch it here. Feel free to laugh with me, or at me. Happy Easter.
