Gustav Holst’s “The Planets” at the LA Phil’s Symphonies for Schools, Walt Disney Concert Hall. Paul Cressy Photography.  

Click here to see the latest video of work. It’s the first time I’ve been able to use my (native) British accent on film. And the rest of 2017 is off to a great start! Look closely and you’ll see me as one of three fathers of a very famous identity in a commercial during a very large sporting event that airs in early February. And that’s about all the NDA will allow me to say.

The picture is from THE PLANETS at Walt Disney Concert Hall. It is an absolute thrill to be acting on stage with the Los Angeles Philharmonic. No one, and I mean no one, gives better underscoring. 

Lastly, in early Spring, I will be directing the AEA Theater for Young Audiences production of Stiles and Drewe’s Goldilocks and the Three Bears at the MainStreet Theatre Company in Rancho Cucamonga. MainStreet has been professionally producing high quality theater for children for 11 years, and I am pleased as, well, honey, to be stepping up to the role of Director.

My favorite film of 2016 (to work on, that is)

Written by TheFaulkner on December 12, 2016 – 11:00 am -

From “Trying to F**k,” a comedy musical short that was knocked out in an incredibly quick shoot (not that you’d know by watching it). These are just two scenes, and I was glad I got the chance to show a British accent (I’m native born) for the first time on screen, having used them for years in the theater. Hope this brings a smile to your face as we say goodbye to a year that, for me, held a lot more disappointments than I care to admit. 2017 is already looking up though, as I’ll return to Walt Disney Concert Hall in January to act alongside the LA Philharmonic in “The Planets,” and then in Spring will undertake my biggest directing job to date, “Goldilocks and the Three Bears.” Have you heard of it? This one’s a musical, and adds a modern, environmental timber-related twist to the classic tale.
