WICKED: nominations at Chelmsford Film Festival

Just heard the guys at Chelmsfield Film Festival have nominated me as BEST ACTOR for FIGHTER!!……………AND they nominated Fighter as BEST FILM and Bugsy as BEST DIRECTOR!

Thanks Chelmsford and Thanks Bugsy for a great experience and great comments. Fighter has won so many awards there’s no more room on the poster!

‘Tommy is a trained actor through and through. He not only knew his lines but everyone else’s, he was prepared and ready at every step of the shoot and super professional. My approach to Down’s syndrome has completely changed since working with Tommy and that’s why I feel that we definitely need more inclusion of Down’s syndrome in mainstream media.’ Bugsy

Thanks too to champion Ryan Pickard It was wicked training with you.

Just discovered a wicked review of ‘Fighter’ – thanks UK Film Review

Just discovered a new review!

The performances are all strong and there is a lovely chemistry between Jessop (Fighter) and his brother Joel (Robbie O’Neill) which is the most affecting part of the final section of the short. Jessop handles the intense close-ups and close-quarter sequences with ease whilst mounting an increasing intensity to his physical performance which works wonderfully with the building tension made in the filmmaking. As the sound design becomes more ferocious, so does Fighter, and the sharp editing and darkened scenes are visually arresting, resulting in a captivating atmosphere which is impossible to escape

It was good working with Robbie O’Neill, Simon Kunz, Laura and Delroy and Bugsy and Jann – everyone!

Wicked! thank you
