FANNY & ALEXANDER

 

 Me and Hollie with Sharon Oakes

Nearly 2 years ago I recorded Fanny & Alexander with Hollie Burgess.  It is a wonderful bitter, sweet story by Ingmar Bergman.  You can read my previous blog here:-

Episode 1

 FANNY & ALEXANDER  Episode 1 of 2

A two-part radio version of Ingmar Bergman’s Academy Award-winning 1982 film about a Swedish family at the start of the twentieth century. The critically acclaimed original work is one of the longest films in cinematic history, and is a beguiling drama about childhood where imagination is found to be a passport out of dread and into mystery. Adapted for radio by Sharon Oakes.

Episode 1:
Through the eyes of ten-year-old Alexander, we witness the delights and conflicts of the Ekdahl family, a sprawling theatrical family in turn-of-the-twentieth-century Sweden. Ingmar Bergman intended Fanny and Alexander to be his swan song, and it is the legendary director’s warmest and most autobiographical film that combines his trademark melancholy and emotional intensity with immense joy and sensuality.

GOOD OMENS TO GET 6 PART SERIES WITH BBC AND AMAZON COLLABORATION

It has just been announced that GOOD OMENS by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman is going to made into a 6 part comedy series for the BBC in collaboration with Amazon. This has been a long time coming and many attempts to bring Good Omens to the screen have failed but now it looks as if it will happen, to the delight of all the Pratchett and Gaiman fans.  The series will air in 2018. Gaiman himself has written all six scripts and will keep a tight rein on the production. . It’s happening, you guys. It’s actually happening.

Rebecca looks after her kids, and her Dad. But Dad isn’t how he used to be. Multi-infarct dementia has made him confused, and forgetful of people and his past.

Rebecca misses her Dad. She longs to talk to him, and to ask him questions.

But what if she could have him back? Just the way he always was?

Has she remembered him right?

Produced and directed by Jonquil Panting.

Written and directed by Thomas and me.

Beautiful music written and composed for us by Nick Norton-Smith

Me at my first fashion show                                                        VIN + OMI

This was my first fashion show and it was very exciting.  It was similar to a Gala film screening with everyone buzzing about and people shouting for photographs and everybody looking super glamorous. Everybody was packed in looking forward to the show.

The collection was a riot of colour and the models walked slowly up and down to loud applause and everybody clamouring to get film or pictures on their phones and ipads.  You can watch the show here:-
