Being Mr Abernathy

It's always fun to play a quirky character and on the 3rd March 2012 I stuck on a mahogany wig, some round Harry Potter style glasses and a slightly higher voice pitch to play the role of Polly, the extremely efficiant and over protective secretary of Mr Abernathy.

Being Mr Abernathy is one of two short films which I'm helping to produce for the Reed Short Film Competition 2012.

This year's theme is 'The Boss' and after some brainstorming sessions we came up with two very different little films, "Being Mr Abernathy" - a quirky office set comedy, and "Rustlers" - a western

In 2011 the theme was 'Monday' and we entered two films into Reed, 'Monday' and 'This is Susan'.  Monday was a film that myself and Christopher Dane developed and were really pleased with the final film.  In fact we were quite disappointed that it didn't get shortlisted.  Especially as at least one shortlisted film had absolutely nothing to do with Monday and personally was only shortlisted because it had a 'named' actor wearing pants in it.  Anyway, have a look at what you did last year and as soon as our 2012 films are done I will put them on this blog for you all to see.
