An update for July… Vote Corbyn!

Hi folks! I hope summer is treating you well.

I don’t usually get political on my blog, it’s mostly work and life stuff. But the post-Brexit craziness and Labour Party internal struggles have led me to profess my support for a Jeremy Corbyn led Labour Party.

I’ve always been a Labour voter. I delivered leaflets with my Grandfather as a lad. But the honesty and passion displayed by Jeremy Corbyn had me signing up as a £3 supporter last year and becoming a full member shortly after Corbyn won.

At a time when we should be hitting the Tories, the Labour Party has chosen to rip itself apart. All I can say is that I hope Corbyn wins the leadership election and that the PLP will stand behind him. We need a Labour Government. I believe Jeremy Corbyn can deliver that.


In other news… we celebrated Bex’s birthday with a couple of nights away in a Yurt in Herefordshire. It was a glorious break, it was very, VERY, hot and we returned rested and refreshed.

Here are a few pics from the trip, along with a few other interesting images. I’m really enjoying Instagram these days and the image filters offered by the Prisma and Tadaa apps.

Until next time, stay hydrated and enjoy the summer!

Shooting PANDORA

Oh, the horror!

Hello there! Long time no see….

It’s been a busy couple of months. I shot a small role in a new BBC Drama, IN THE DARK, a lovely scene with MyAnna Buring…

Then it was on to a leading role in a magnificent horror film, PANDORA.
I can’t tell you anything about it, other than it was dark, gory – and lots of fun to do.

Our director is Carl Whiteley, here’s one of his funnier projects…

And here’s a few recent pics I took whilst on location to give you a little flavour of what is to come…..

Street hardware…

Okay, I have to admit I love street hardware.

Grates, doors, utility covers, signs etc, old bits of cast iron and wood that take on a lovely look after years of being driven or walked on, passed through and generally abused.

A few recent pics here, for more have a look at the photo gallery page

… and I can tell you no more about it, other than we have a rehearsal read through Monday in Manchester.

And I’m doing a great film project in Manchester over the next few weeks.  I can tell you no more about that either…. 🙂

All will be revealed my friends, and all will be good.

Have a great weekend

P.S. Wishing all these protesting at Downing Street well for today, though I don’t expect to see it on the news. Make their pips squeak!

 

Hendo's lover

Come and see my shorts!

Hi folks!

A big night for me, a couple of my short films get a public screening at the Showroom in Sheffield as part of The South Yorkshire Filmmakers Network Showroom Shorts evening.

Showing tonight will be What The Heck? Henderson’s Relish and The Yorkshire Teabaggers video for LARDY BUM.

It’s going to be a great experience for me to see them on a larger screen with a room full of strangers, so come along if you can, tonight, Tuesday 15 March 21:00, The Showroom Cinema, Paternoster Row, Sheffield S1, Main Bar, Length – 80 mins. And IT’S FREE!

If you can’t be there, then look up my shorts below on the largest screen you can!

Cheers! Dave

KING OF THE DEAD. DVD update

51yYSSHxt-L
DVD COVER

I know, I know, I started going on about this years ago – there were potential release dates touted, but all came to nought. The joys of Indie films….

But now there is a release date – March 7th. It’s available for pre-order available here on Amazon. Not Sure about other availability as yet, but will be in stores somewhere.

UPDATE: I had this on pre-oder with Amazon and then had the email to say it would not be released until January 2017!!!!! I could spit! It is, apparently, available on Pay Per View schedules, look out for it there. 

Here’s a few pics from the shoot….
