“I met Vicki Brown by chance one night at the Tron theatre when we spoke about TAM – apparently I looked very much like the illustration she and Jason had created as a reference* for how Tam should look – how lucky !? I was immediately interested and when I read the script I loved it. It has been a real pleasure working with Vicki and Jason. More than anything I was blown away with the locations they kept finding – the genius of a visual artist I guess (for example the shot entering the rave). Cycling through the Necropolis was one of the finest and most enjoyable acting experiences I’ve ever had. I also really enjoyed the green screen experience though I was a bit saddle sore! It’s been amazing to see the film come together with grading, special effects and sound, all brilliantly done . I think and hope we have a great little film, born out of a magic idea and a willingness and tenacity along with a large helping of talent to make it work. I also hope that this will be the beginning of a successful time for Greenlight Creative and I would love to work with them again as they can make me look good; a rare talent.”
