Some of the greatest rewards in acting are found among the journeys we actors are afforded into other times, other places, other personas. In April 2017, I strolled onto the breathtaking estate of Lissan House to take one such trip back in time via the set of In Another Life, a student film made by a a talented cast and crew of students from Queen’s University.
Today, I’m happy to share with you some of the behind the scenes photos, promotional still shots and the final film.
And now, on with the show! I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed being a part of it. A very special thanks goes out to Danielle Leslie, Daryl Shields, Andrew Shanks, Laura Cro, Rian West, Rachel Smylie, Paul Leslie, Alice Catterson, Clive Lindsay and Desmond Eastwood for all of their parts in the creation of this fabulous short film and for allowing me to be a part of it.
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.
