Christmas is coming. New video, new pics, and on TV in January

Christmas is almost here!
We’ve had the first dusting of snow on the Sheffield hills, my cards are sent, presents mostly bought, now I’m making lists for food shopping for the big day.

I’ve also been busy on the business side, getting new actor headshot pics and making a new video to share with you, so lots to tell you about in this update….

I usually record a video each Christmas of me reading A VISIT FROM ST. NICHOLAS (‘Twas the night…). I used to read it to my children on Christmas eve in the pre-divorce days, but I never see them to read it now, so I started recording it for them.

This year I decided to record an audio version for them and put a bit more into the production side, with sound effects and such. I’m very pleased with the results.

I’ve put it on YouTube with some family photos and videos under the audio, here it is….

If you’d like the original audio version in it’s full glory, it’s here to listen or download…. or buy if you wish to send me money.


I’m going to be in your house in January!
Earlier this year I recorded a lovely episode of GIRLFRIENDS, Kay Mellor’s new drama for ITV. A couple of nice scenes with Miranda Richardson and Zoë Wanamaker. The series begins Weds January 3rd. I’m in Episode 3. It’s a lovely cast, please watch.

Here’s some of the new pics of the new slimmer me (over 80lbs lost now) – and with new glasses too. I’m hoping the new slimmer look leads to more TV work as directors move me from the obese to hunky casting category 😁

And here’s a final Christmassy treat for you, the first Yorkshire Teabaggers video. Our parody take on one of the most popular of Christmas songs.

What a lot of Christmas goodies eh?
So, now I’ve unloaded my sack on you, I will bid you a Very Merry Christmas and the Happiest New Year.

Stay warm, stay safe, help others, spread the love and be good to yourself.

Love always,

A short horror film…

It’s the school holidays this week and I’ve had the pleasure of having my son Benjamin stay with me for a few days.

We’d had ideas for a short film concept a couple of weeks ago with the intention of making it this week.

All went to plan and we’re both very happy with the end result…
BENJAMIN – naughty or nice

Shot and edited in one day with a budget of £2.50 (for the t-shirt).

Benjamin is hoping for more film work and we certainly will be shooting more collaborations.

Anyone looking to cast a teenager for film/TV work, please contact me (below) and I will see if we can work together. Benjamin is a pleasure to work with. But then I would say that, I’m his Dad….

Editing and Voiceover by me!

There’s an important by-election coming up in Stoke on Feb 23.

I’m a member of WellRedFilms, a group that produced this video about some of the issues in this election… I did the voiceover and video editing. Please take a look and share…

WellRedFilms is fundraising at the moment to make more videos like this…. please take a moment to look at this and consider donating.

Present… Our Xmas Single! Call me Dave Teabag

In my second post of the Yuletide Season, I’ll share what’s happening in the present…..

I have joined up with a local bloke known as Tommy Teabag, changed my name to Dave Teabag, and we’ve done our first video release especially for Christmas.

Hairy Tale of New York(shire) Title Frame

Going under the name of The Yorkshire Teabaggers, we’ve recorded our take on the Christmas classic, Fairytale of New York, but given it a Yorkshire twist and renamed it Hairy Tale of New York(shire).

We’ve had a huge response on our Facebook Page and on YouTube as well… I share it with you now to spread the love from Yorkshire this Christmas.

All filmed locally at The Railway, Wadsley Bridge, Sheffield, just down the road from The Trafalgar Fisheries mentioned in the last post. Jean serves a fine pint, so get down there!

And finally, as a little Christmas gift to you, I’d like to share something I’ve recorded for family and friends, with a special Christmas wish for my children, Benjamin, Sophie and Joseph.

Merry Christmas to all! And to all, a good night!

love, Dave x
