Please RT this great show reel from Video Ink (Manchester)  I did a music video for the rock band ‘ The Defiled’, produced by Video Ink and there is a snippet of me but the music video doesn’t come out until August.

The video below is a jam-packed 2 minutes 40 seconds of all the best bits from the last 12 months at Video Ink… the awesome artists, incredible performers and brilliant crews!

I have written and directed my first short film.  I have been waiting for the music and the lovely Isin Eray has just sent me the link to the music she has composed for me.   I am going to put my film into under 16’s film festivals so if you know of any good ones, please let me know.

On Sunday I went over to in Oxford to have a go at recording some scripts for an internet education programme.  It was really interesting being in the studio where you had to be really quiet and still.  I have done recording for the BBC before and I really enjoy it .  I met some more kids and we all got on really well.

It has been a busy couple of weeks.  I have been doing a lot of rehearsing for a short film I am doing in a few weeks and I had a short trip to Germany to do some ADR for ‘The Physician’.   I was one of the presenters on EN5Radiotheyoung1’s last week and also had an audition for another short film, which I am happy to say, I will be doing in July.

Don’t forget to tune in to this Wednesday when Isabella Blake-Thomas will be the guest on the show at about 5.00 p.m.   She is an accomplished young actress and definitely we will see more of her in the future.  Log on to and listen to what she has to say about being a child actor.
