Professional performer in TV, Films and Stage also Radio Producer and Presenter, Executive Film Producer and Voice Over artist.
A little more about me:
I have had a very real passion to be involved in performing and presenting since I was a young man. I was lucky enough to retire from the police service at a relatively early age and I am now in a position to actively pursue all my dreams and ambitions. I love to learn about new things.
I have performed on stage and now I am now concentrating more on Film and TV work. I have been a bit of a 'man on a mission' over the last three to four years having been in the equivalent of more than twenty five varied films in that time.
I was also company director of the film and visual arts production Community Interest Company 'StreetsAhead Productions'
I am currently leaning towards honing my skills as a director and producer and have several ideas or projects under development for both the near and distant future. I aspire to create entertaining and educational work often addressing 'issues based' subject matter that I consider to be important and which I believe needs to be given a platform to be more seen and heard.
Projects I’m working on:
Two years ago I had the opportunity to work as an Assistant Stage Manager on the National Theatre Wales production of 'Praxis Makes Perfect'.
Acting: As well as my work with 'StreetsAhead Productions' I am also one half of 'Fritz Streets Films' with my partner Fritz O'Skennick (a real two man band jobby where we mainly do just about everything between us) who have previously produced the fun 'Penarth' fun sci-fi web series. We are now planning for Episode Three of the series 'The Mark' and also the opening 'proper tidy like' episode of 'Taffman - the First Welsh Avenger' Previously I have been 'Marcus' (the murderous and deceitful older brother) in 'The Visitor', as 'Frankie' (the mature love interest) in 'Love Slash Hate' and as 'Paul Goldberg' (a sad and vengeful millionaire) in the feature horror film 'Theatre of Fear', 'Glyn' the owner of a failing drag club in 'Life's a Drag' previously 'Dad' in 'I'm Here' with 'Its My Shout', 'Ash the Zombie Slayer' in BBC Wales/Its My Shout film 'Fetch' and as 'Bulldog' a Falklands War veteran living out on the streets suffering with the effects of PTSD. I am always looking to meet new people and to get involved in all sorts of varied and interesting projects.
Aww you may miss a treat;) ah well... Alternatively I hear some friends performing Romans of Britain at Chapter on the same nights may be an eye-opening alternative to our Valleys Shakespeare if you're at a loose end ;)
Of course I'd love to be involved *practices"Oh Taffman, you're my hero" ... ;)
Hi Nigel. Thank you very much for contacting me. I'd love to keep in touch with what you're up to as well. I'm very touched by your offer about StreetsAhead Productions and I'd love to get involved in any way I can. Thanks again and hope we can stay in touch. Kind Regards, Abbie
Now we hear from Prof Ian Hargreaves @CreativeCardiff - should more public bodies follow @NTWtweets approach, eschewing permanent iconic buildings and siting their work in the context of the communities they seek to work for?
