I have recently done voice-over work for Irish Radio International doing the scripted links/in show promo clips for 'The Gathering' a show on Thursdays from 8-9pm (Links in use from 28/03/2013), this was a fun opportunity to show a few of my many spoken-voice 'gears' (The actual recordings are on my profile audio-clips they are a little quiet owing to pin-hole mic recording and were amplified prior to use-I now have decent equipment).
I am on cloud nine having today (27/5/12) been cast in the male lead as Sky Masterson in 'Guys And Dolls' with Haods to play in the Capitol 6th til 10th November 2012, (This was literally the best time of my life to date, fantastic fun, rewarding, great feedback from wonderful audiences-please see review from Noda: www.noda.org.uk/events/reports/haods
we were also reviewed by the West Sussex County Times-I will attach the document to profile as if a photo).
I am delighted have been cast to play the lead (psychopath character) in a horror short to be filmed this summer, obviously too early for any kind of details. (This was shot 1/7/12, and was a brilliant experience-again I received good feedback-I can't wait to see this-it was really quite shocking!)
I have now heard from NYCDA (following my audition for them in April 2012) after which I was encouraged to apply (July 12) for a talent based scholarship for next years professional program. I have been awarded the Meisner scholarship I applied for, which was a fantastic piece of news-however the costs total in excess of £33k even with the concession provided by award-this I cannot afford; so I shall continue to do my best to develop myself through courses available which are within reach geographically and in terms of affordability, onwards and upwards!
Last winter (4/2/12) appeared in a short action film which once edited will appear on my profile (Disappointingly I am yet to receive this footage, though I have chased it up and is 'on it's way') this was a great shoot, with some learning for me along with good opportunity to showcase my martial-arts in a dramatic situation-I got positive feedback which was very gratifying,
I am a member of HAODS amateur operatic and dramatic society based in Horsham, I aim to learn more about performance art in general and see some excellent 'old hands' in their element-I sang bass in their prodution of 'Mikado' (April 17-21st 2012 at the Capitol Theatre in Horsham) This was a fantastic experience and was received really well.
I have assisted in filming and appeared in many demo reels for my instructor, (Searchable on U-tube 'Emil Martirossian jkd' by no means do I appear in all, but a fair number) Also, though the film is still undergoing editing-I have a good scene in his latest film project, which I had more input into regarding fight choreography than previously, I have a good eye for detail, realism & continuity. I am keen to get my face 'out there' and will certainly consider non-speaking roles as so much can be said with a gesture or facial expression. Obviously gaining experience can only help me, so your consideration is greatly appreciated.
