Lights, Cameo, Action!

20722063129_0905bbe272_zNick turned actor for a day when he was invited to appear in a short film, The Guardian, last week. Thankfully for Nick, though, he didn’t have to deliver an Oscar performance as he was appearing as himself in a small cameo role.

The Guardian, produced by Aturn Films, is a comedy drama that tells the story of the afterlife through the eyes of three main characters and Nick was invited to join the cast by Director Andy Turner.

Andy explained about the story behind The Guardian: “The idea for the story came to me almost two years ago. We all have weird dreams, and the idea is that we all have a Guardian that communicates with us through our dreams.

“Based on that thought I wanted something that could be filmed in a modern setting using a variety of locations, but that still had a fun and unique side to it.

“The pilot episode has been co-written with Ritchie Johnston a talented new writer from Leeds who originates from Norfolk and I’ve been working on the project since the start of the year pulling together actors and crew.  It will be 25 minutes approximately in length and filming is due to finish in September and editing should be completed by the end of Autumn.”

Nick’s acting debut was in a scene centred around a pub, so it was the perfect location to film on a (mostly) sunny Summer’s day and, although the film is being produced on a shoestring with all actors and crew contributing their skills for little or no fee, the finished product will be nothing other than a professional production.

“I immediately loved the concept of The Guardian and was delighted to offer my support to help make it as much as a success as possible. Great crew, great people, great giggles. A top gig.

“I really enjoyed the experience but was relieved that I was appearing as myself – I’m no John Hurt!”
