In recounting my experience on this particular enterprise, there are two people to whom I must once again express my enormous gratitude. They are Colin David Reese and Ruggero Dalla Santa, who together run the Screen Acting Skills Workshops, and from whom this Actor learned everything he knows about acting in his favoured medium of camera. Located in beautiful Northern Italy, we actually shot our scene in a cave system, hewn out by human mining operations. The use of lighting, sound, set construction and location combined to create a truly surreal and dystopian setting. In particular, the use of camera to bring the desired results was demanding, and required me to draw upon many of the skills which Colin and Ruggero have taught me, and to combine them with a truly exceptional Cameraman and Director of Photography.
This has been the most enjoyable casting I have had since I came to acting; and I was delighted to be told by the Director that we smashed it, and exceeded his expectations. I am glad we all did our jobs, and wherever acting takes me in future, I will always be grateful to those people who make it possible for me.
Finally, this blog could never be complete without reference to the one person who, more than any other, continues to love and support me in this and every endeavour I undertake: my Wife, Karen.
