Sheets of Paper, dir: Haitham Assem

me, and Martin Pirongs

In March I starred in a short film called Sheets of Paper, directed by Haitham Assem, playing a prison guard who is at first consistantly abusive to a prisoner (Martin Pirongs), but then after accidentally dropping a piece of paper in his cell during an inspection, on which he then draws a picture of me, I get all warm inside and give him a load more paper to draw on. Lovely. Also a bit gay.

We filmed on 16mm which is relatively expensive, and we only had 10 minutes worth so there was a lot of pressure to get things right in only 1 or 2 takes. Still, the film has a great look to it, and I understand it will be entered into a number of festivals. More updates when I know them!
