Respite At Christmas

ImageAfter a few test shoots with Focus Productions I was asked to play the role of Jim in their latest film Respite at Christmas.

All filmed locally, the film is set in the Ardennes forest during the Christmas of 1944. A widowed mother attempts to bring together two unlikely guests.

Filled with a great cast and crew – and with help from a war re-enactment society for authenticity – hopefully you’ll enjoy the final product  as much as we did making it!

There will be a free screening of Respite at Christmas this Saturday at 11am at the Odeon Cinema, Victoria Square, Belfast. Hope to see you all there.

Here’s a teaser of what’s in store for you!
