I've had a home recording studio for many years now, so I was a bit ahead of the game when everything shut down. Here's some of the stuff I've done since March 2020.
This is a test for a computer game. Haven't heard yet if I've got the part. Funny script. An English motorist breaks down on Watt street, Ware, Oregon. I'm both characters.
For the INK Festival, a 2 minute duologue by Tom Pauk, between an old Suffolk man, and his Polish friend. Again both me! Radio Suffolk 4/9/20
Another one for INK. A monologue by Matt Marvel.
This was a test for a TV called Soulmates. And they used it! Love being Martin Amis.
A test for John Betjeman in The Crown. Got the part. The last thing you hear in Series 4 as Her Maj heads of in the carriage for her Jubilee
...to the ridiculous, hey gotta pay the rent.
A test. Didn't get it.
I do a lot of newsreaders, for The Crown, Downton, movies and TV series, like these. Here's an example of the Cholmoney-Warner version.
And here's a short story I wrote called The Nail that Bent read by the marvellous Wayne Forester. I would have read it, but it's a Welsh story, and Wayne gives the story complete authenticity. You can watch it here.
More Specific by Toby Laurence
A funny short sketch about a man whose kitchen has been delivered to the wrong house. Me and Katie Redford.
I was asked to read a short story by Saki, called Cousin Theresa. Funny story. You can see it here.
Now I'm an old git, I get asked to help aspiring actors, which I'm happy to do. Here's me answering questions from students at Stagecoach.
