There's something about being on film which has always stirred something up deep within my psyche. I hold my hands up to the paradox that I do not like having someone take my photo, yet am fascinated by seeing myself on camera.
The understandable knee-jerk reaction here would be vanity, which is simply not the motivation, so let me break it down. I think that being on film is the closest that we will ever get to knowing ourselves objectively. It's the closest you'll ever get to ascertaining a choke hold on that slippery thing called time.
We don't even know what our voices sound like due to the reverberations created between the tiny bones in our ears when we talk. This distorts our perceptions of our own voice. Being on film is like holding up a 360 degree mirror, and that fascinates me, as we have literally no other means to achieve that.
So far, my show reel is pretty tragic. A measly, 2015 pitched pilot episode for a dating show, "Get Your Kit On", an application to present a World Nomads episode on YouTube in 2017.
I have a lot of makeup tutorials stacking up though, go to 'Your Place To Space' on YouTube to check them out.
