Woah check this out guys – on Saturday we won Best UK Series at the UK Web Fest! Not bad eh? “Award winning web series”… I like the sound of that.
So I know you much prefer it when you can hear my voice but not see my face, so here’s the #RecycleWeek #UnusualSuspects videos that came out this week. I’m doing the voice of the detective on the phone, and the main VOs at the end. They’ve got Ewen McIntosh (Keith from The Office) in them. Watch all 4 episodes right here!
So yesterday they announced the Raindance Webfest 2016 programme. Now we knew that Rich Keeble Vanity Project had been selected, and would be screened at the festival which was all very exciting – we’d been told to keep it quiet until the official announcement of course. My previous series All in the Method had been an official selection back in 2013, and the whole experience was rather nice, seeing it up there on the big screen, chatting to some lovely people. What we didn’t realise was that we’d been nominated for Best UK Web series with only 4 other shows! Wow! And the other shows look like they had a budget! Jeez! So that’s us rather smugly enjoying a free drink at the festival launch party at JuJu in Chelsea last night. What we then found out… after Edd was casually looking at the programme on his phone, was that we’ve also been nominated for BEST WRITING! Un-be-fucking-lievable! I’d actually be very surprised if we won either category, but we’re genuinely over the moon to be nominated, and it’s certainly gonna be a fun festival. You can hear Johnny McDaid from Snow Patrol saying our (my) name at about 10:44 in this video.
Back in March I did some voice work for the new Total War: Warhammer video game. The game came out in May but the voices I did were for the Beastmen DLC (downloadable content as I learned) which came out on July 28th. The reason I’m only posting this now is that A) I signed an NDA, and B) I got a bit behind with posting stuff because of the baby (see last post!). Funnily enough I was due to work on another big video game on that very release date (July 28th), but my girlfriend went into labour 2 weeks before the due date so we had to reschedule! Oh well. I’ll tell you more about that game when that’s all out there!
In the meantime, that’s the Beastmen trailer right there. To be honest, I have no idea if any of my voice is in there (apart from the obvious, it is pitched down), and I’ll probably to struggle to identify myself in any uploaded gameplayso if anyone does find any gameplay on Youtube, pitches up a Beastman voice and thinks it’s me, do let me know!

hi guys. So we had a baby. Thanks for everyone’s messages and kind words so far. If you weren’t aware, partly due to a decision not to put photos of our daughter on the internet (as we don’t know whether these babies born in the internet age will be annoyed with us in years to come etc, as well as her own safety) but largely to amuse myself, I’ve been only posting photos of her where I’ve deliberately obscured her face. Hilarious huh?
So here’s Episode 1 of the new series! Very exciting I’m sure you’ll agree. Stay tuned for weekly episodes released every Monday! All that’s left to see is how my friendship with Sam and Edd will recover from the various stresses of getting to this point.
So after some very late nights and strained emotions, we were in a position to say that all 6 episodes of Series 2 of Rich Keeble Vanity Project were picture locked with grade and sound mixing to follow. Prior to that moment of (temporary) relief however, we optimistically released the above trailer which has a release date of 4th July on it. So we have to stick to it! You hear me? 4th July. Watch this space! (please)

So here’s the first online advert for Love Island that I recorded for ITV the other week. You’d never guess that I did the main VO and the voice of the Small Talkulator itself would you?!
