This month, I worked on a sci fi pilot called, The Lost Recursion, directed by Mark Larranaga, more commonly know for his work as a visual effects specialist and digital compositor on a ton of blockbuster movies such as Avengers: Age of Ultron, Creed II, The Revenant, The Greatest Showman, Aquaman, Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi, and he is currently working on the sixth film in the Terminator series. We had great fun on the shoot (photo with Michael Ursu playing, Young Wallace) and I can’t wait to see how the pilot turns out! Big things ahead, I hope.
I also worked on Cereal and The Grip of the Ascension Series for the narrative story app, Yarn. Season 1 of the 4 stories: Break In, Remains, Cereal and The Grip, were launched on Yarn at the end of December so download the app today, subscribe and enjoy! A new medium in story telling; it’s not like anything you’ll have experienced before. Here’s a link to the beginning of the series:
I was on schedule for a great end to the year as I was on hold for two commercials and another primetime, TV show but, as sometimes happens, I was released from all three!
The rest of December was spent Christmas shopping though I almost ruined my trip back to the UK by getting the date wrong for my flight home. I tried to check in a day late but if I didn’t believe in Father Christmas or the Christmas Fairy before, I do now, as British Airways gave me the best Christmas present ever by stepping in and moving me to a new flight. At such an incredibly busy time of year, I was so, so grateful to be able to get back to the UK and spend Christmas with my family so a huge shout-out to British Airways for saving my holiday!
And although See’s Candies are now considered to be potential explosives and I get pulled out every time I go through security at the airport so they can swab all the boxes (ugh!), all my family and friends were over the moon to receive their favourite chocolates for Christmas so it was worth lugging all those boxes home. It’s amazing how much chocolates weigh!
