Myself and my film group are planning on making a 5-8 minute documentary based on the life story of Mo Farah, and specifically about his immigration from Somalia to the UK.
We are looking for an actor preferably of Somalian decent (or of a black ethnicity) to portray Mo Farah. You certainly don't need to be an identical match to Mo Farah. We just need a thin male, possibly of a black ethnicity, and if possible someone who is bald or would be…Continue

I've just started as Participation Director for the mammoth show that will be City Of The Unexpected. Next September, for the centenary of Roald Dahl's birth, NTW and WMC will be transforming the centre of Cardiff. 3 days of mischief and mayhem for all ages. Oh brilliant!
As the (almost) year evolves, I'll be blogging along, giving my view through the Dahloscope.
I was introduced to a software monster called…Continue

Consider this my second blog since being a freelancer. So far its going ok. Somewhere in between moving, working for the Big Democracy and thinking an awful lot I sat myself down and FINALLLY finished the soundtrack to Cwmni Pluen's "Ti.Me". I had a wonderful time with all of the people involved and hope to carry it on in the future but as promised here's the soundtrack if not somewhat delayed! ***Personal request! Please listen to in order with good headphones :)…Continue

Our moral arbiters are so keen to see a perceived threat to peoples' well-being when there is none. It has become the norm in what is supposed to be a democracy to take offence at the least slight when a small minority need to be protected against the majority. The recent news that the Lord's Prayer advert has been banned by cinemas is only to be expected. Who exactly is humiliated or offended that it has to be withdrawn? The country has been in such a moral decline that it is…Continue

Somebody sent me this great photo of Wales from outer space i really love how you can see all of the landscape, valleys and mountains. You can see how impassable mid-wales can be and why the roads twist and turn.
You can also see how easy it is to be up a mountain, on a beach or walking in a forest...National Theatre Wales…Continue

Last summer I got inspiration from HIRAETH and participated in WalesLab. I and Jorge Lizalde(video artist) went to Aberystwyth and interview people about their memory.
Now we started next stage "Cymru & I in japan, Nagaoka"
Nagaoka is my birth place. So we started the journey to discover my "HIRAETH".
