All work include STUNTS and dialogue.The most challenging of all films would have to be the AWARD WINNING and Academy award nominated "BOY". As directed by
Welby Ings the cast had no dialogue. We the cast had to tell the story with improvisation of the body and thought backed by the music that was performed. A very different but exciting way to tell this story. My character MUZZA was a evil man having control of the local underground forcing his way into peoples lives in a very calm way. If you get the chance to see this deep and dark film, please do it will make you think!
