Yes; that was me you saw in a Tesco Advert.
I think this qualifies as probably the most unusual things I have done in 2012. Getting an invite asking me if I want to help on a project that was looking for a Video Game playing DadÂ Â I was happy to help.
Discovering that it was an audition for an advert then deciding to walk right in andÂ audition just to see what happens explains something of how IÂ approach opportunities. I am on screenÂ for a little more than 3 seconds. I sat on that couch and played a video game for nearly 7 and a half hours but that is only part of the experience. Screentests, wardrobe tests , makeup, lighting , being directed but not acting and when I say â€˜YESâ€™ it really was due to a successful event on screen. The work that goes into preparing for such a productionÂ and the work that occurs afterwards is impressive and that is an understatement.
So yes I appeared in an advert and having seen the range of adverts that have been produced for this campaignÂ I am left admiring what they are doing with the themes and the tunes.The most interesting part in this experience was taking a lesson from @sizemore and realising that until it was on the screen then there was no point in talking about it.
