I wrote France’s entry for the inaugural Eurovision Sitcom Contest this year (a one-off title given to a Sitcom Trials show paying homage to the other Eurovision show). Although it came a close second to an excellent script by a well-rehearsed Israeli team it will be extra memorable for me – being forced to step in at the last minute to play the lead role of Lapierre. A short extract of my performance can be seen in this video, saying, among other things “Heil Shitler!“
I worked as a producer on this award-winning spot for Blackcurrant Tango. Part of the brief was to supply the client with a “making-of” video – which I duly shot and directed. It was after this that I asked Ray Gardner to star in my short film “Up and Running”.
