So often with an industry attached to a life of fame, celebrity and spotlight, we overlook the significance of many working actors and their role and contribution in today’s society. I’m An Actor seeks to go beyond what we see on the stage and in the spotlight, to ask the question, Why do they act? Following the personal stories of 5 actors, we explore questions of identity and success, trial and celebration, purpose and meaning.
I’m lucky enough to be co-producing this documentary alongside actor, producer and my fiancé, Maria Webb. Of course, with all of these projects, I’m wearing multiple hats; going back to my roots as a cameraman and cinematographer, I will be co-directing and shooting this documentary. We started pre-production in February 2018 and in June began filming initial interviews.
