SPOT is an RTS award winning short film I worked on for the students at QUB a couple of years back. It’s a brilliant dark comedy. I’ve been given permission to share it with you all during these difficult times we face. I hope you enjoy watching it just as much as we all enjoyed filming it.
Time flies! It’s been over four years since I was on set with the fantastic students who created and filmed The Mountain.
It’s hard to express how rewarding I found working with the talented cast and crew on this Queen’s University student film project. Not only was it a joy to work with them, but I was thrilled for their subsequent Royal Television Society win in the category of student drama in March 2016.
I believe it’s important to give back to my community by lending a hand to just this sort of production. I always encourage my fellow actors to help out where they can with our young filmmakers or tomorrow. You’ll be rewarded mightily with creations such as this short film, which is still one of my favourites.
It was such a great pleasure to be a part of this fantastic film created and filmed by the students at QUB. If it had just ended with the filming, I’d have been happy enough to have enjoyed the magic they put into it, but SPOT was so good that it won an RTS award in the category of Comedy and Entertainment this week too!
I can’t express just how much I admire these talented young people and what they have accomplished. I have no doubt that you will be hearing more of Hannah McEvoy, Patrick Magennis, Conor Patterson, Jenny Parkhill and Bethany Mackin in the future.
R.I.P. Spot. Your memory will live on forever.
