Ante The Teaser gets blogged

September 11, 2010 — 4 Comments

As many of you are aware I took part in the creation of the short film Ante earlier this year. The director Chris Cronin edited Ante the Teaser in a few days mainly to show the crew and the cast, and give us a flavour of how it will look. Well, the teaser attracted 1000 YouTube views over a few days and kept on climbing despite having no publicity. The teaser itself garnered entry into a Film Festival and bit of a buzz has surrounded the film ever since.

It is a great story written by Paul Thomas who was inspired by Richard Kuklinski ‘the iceman’ in his creation of the Hitman Pierson, the character I play. It was one of those gamble shoots for an actor as far as I was concerned. I hadn’t heard of the director and I didn’t know who else had been cast. So the first thing I did was google other work Chris had done and after watching that I knew I wanted to be part of this project. I was impressed by his visual style and ideas, and even though I wouldn’t be paid I auditioned anyway.

I don’t usually do unpaid work anymore but sometimes it feels right to help out in that way and to be honest I’m glad I did. The other actors were great to work with and the crew were a team that in my opinion, along with the writer, have a good chance of going far in the mad bad biz of film.
