"Sides" A black comedy set in a New Zealand film talent casting agency.

A comedy about a group of actors with a chance to land the role of a lifetime...


The show is gritty and innovative, only involving actors in the creative process. All camera set ups are unmanned, fly on the wall (in many cases with actors not being aware of them) while other cameras are worn by performers (in the style of the British TV series Peep Show). The actors improvised in “one-take only” scenarios often having no idea who they would perform with. The results are a scathing and hilarious black comedy set in a New Zealand film talent casting agency, where over the course of a day a dysfunctional set of actors all audition for the part of the “Pilot” in an American Production about a zombie infested airplane about to crash into L.A.

Emigration.

Hi all,

It's been so long since my last update on this blog. To be honest I'm not too sure if this blog is the best place to keep writing posts anyway, what with Facebook, Twitter and all. Who the hell is going to visit this page?

Anyway, I'll jot something down anyway.

I emigrated! again! This time to the Great White North, which so far has been amazing. The acting situation for me is non-existent at the moment since I've been working on getting settled here, buying a home, dealing with immigration and with two little kids, it's been pretty demanding.

But I'm here now and I'm about to turn my attention once more to my career. I am an Actor, that's what I do. I might not get paid much, I might not get paid at all. But I love it and nothing will stop me from pursuing my dream.

So, what's around the corner? Who knows. What I do know is that I need to meet people, get involved in productions, get the latest goss, make contacts, get auditions and see where it goes.

Wish me luck!

In the meantime, I'll leave you with this lovely photo of my new home.
