The Backstory of Artifice

Introduction. I do not like books about acting, per se. I like to read and hear what other actors have to say about their own process. My instrument and I are not perfect. My voice is too small. My Nebraska accent that sticks to my vowels like molasses and every glottal that has ever been uttered has found its way into my speech  Fortunately for me, I am not a perfectionist. Besides, we live in an imperfect world. I try to be ready, instead. A person...

The Big Black

Director: Oliver Kyr.
Our forefathers warned us not to leave the burden of a guilt behind when we die. Because before your guilt-ridden soul is redeemed to heaven you would enter a queer, dark world. Welcome to the nightmare of purgatory. Welcome to the „Big Black“. 20-year-old Jack hunts the nightmare of his past and crosses paths with mysterious Eve. The beautiful girl who is either his Guardian Angel or his Final Doom. Time runs out as Jack tries to escape the demons of the waste lands in order to find redemption. Intense pictures and gripping music form a poetic base for a surreal plot and bizarre characters: An independent film with a renowned European cast.

Ham & The Piper clip

This is a one minute clip which charts the basic journey of our lead actor... with music from Kerry Hope Kavanagh.


Director: mark norfolk.
Set in London, Burt, an elderly man discovers that his beloved wife of twenty five years is dying and begins to question whether his culture has been surpressed during his long marriage. He lapses into a psychological conflict with his own sub-conscience as he wrestles with the concept of whether black people have been cursed as quoted in the bible. As his mind descends into madness we soon discover what might make an ordinary man do the extraordinary.


Director: Grzegorz Cisiecki.
The story of the person who became the captive of surrealistic madness.
