In June I was B-cam operator on a video for Cycle Ataxia. A charity cycle for a great cause. I got to shoot from the top of a crane that had been used in Game of Thrones. Ok, not a big deal, but I’m taking it. 🙂

Anthony Downes was A-cam operator and editor.

Earlier in August I performed as Frank in “Beryl” at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival with At Large Theatre Company.

Frank, a sensitive loner, is haunted by the memories of his past. Driven by an urge to overcome these, he avails of the private cross-dressing services of Beryl. As their stories unfold, both characters must unmask themselves before the other and the true purpose of their meeting becomes clear. As both characters face painful truths about their desires and fears, a final revelation brings their conflicting energies to a dangerous point until there can only be space for one inside Beryl’s rundown bedsit.

Great summer trip!
