Screening of Hope in Odeon, Belfast

Tonight, Hope, the Lord of the Rings film I acted in was screened in the Odeon cinema in Belfast, as part of the HND show for Belfast Metropolitan College.



The show was huge hit, and was among the most popular of the evening, the audience rapt by the visual spectacle of the piece.

The film was edited down from 11 minutes to seven, and even then it was two minutes longer than the brief allowed, but I guess the invigilators were so impressed that they overlooked this. Unfortunately my major scene was one of the big casualties of the cut.

All the guys were there, Chris, Jonny, Aisling, and of course, the director, Ben.

It was great to see the finished project, but I can't wait to see the full length version.

Hope production wrapped

Today production wrapped on Hope, an ambitious Lord of the Ring fanfic project. I played two orcs, made possible by the incredibly impressive costumes, with realistic latex masks for the orcs.



The shooting took place in Belvoir Park, in Belfast, which turned out to be a perfect location, because of it's sheer vastness, despite being on the edge of the city.

The director is Benjamin Mudge, who wrote and produced the project, with Aisling Kelly, Chris McCann, Jonny Walker and other students from the Belfast Metropolitan College.

This is a project I'm genuinely excited about, and with highly enthusiastic Lord of the Rings across the world, this is sure to be a big success.

Production shots and clips to come soon.
