The old saying goes “If you look after the pennies, the pounds will look after themselves“… you could apply this to the short film I worked on last year, 2p, as it has been selected by the The Arizona Film Festival this year.
From its small budget and a lot of heart from the cast and crew, 2p is certainly reaping its rewards.
Well done to everyone involved and a big thanks to producer Larry Cowan (Lamb Films) and Director Will Maloney for letting me play the role of Billy!
Keep an eye for 2p coming to festival near you soon!
Fantastic news today regarding 2p, as it is confirmed that not only will the film be shown on all 25 of the BBC’s Big Screens, but that it has also been signed up for a five-year distribution deal with Shorts International.
Shorts International is the world’s leading short movie entertainment company. With a catalogue of over 3,000 short movies, the company has represented Oscar winners and nominees, festival favourites and revered classics.
This is amazing recognition for the work of Larry Cowan at Lamb Films and Will Maloney, the director.
You can visit the BBC site for details on the locations of the 25 screens, and keep your eyes peeled for 2p‘s appearance on a big screen near you very shortly!
Will Maloney has done an amazing job with the writing, directing and editing. I hope we get to work together again soon.
I would like to thank Will and Larry from Lamb Films for having me on board, it was a privilege to work on this project with such talented people as cinematographer Denis Maloney and everyone else on the production team.
It was a bit of a step into the unknown for me as this is probably the most lighthearted, fun role I’ve ever taken on – I hope you enjoy it and if you do, tell all your friends and pass it on!
As the phrase goes (well sort of) “View once! View often!”

I’ve been making a habit of getting up early at weekends and the weekend past was no exception – though 5:30am was nearly too early for me! But it was all worth it – I was filming new movie “2p” directed by Will Maloney, produced by Larry Cowan from Lamb Films and shot by experienced Director of Photography Denis Maloney.
With locations at Queen’s University, Clement’s Coffee Shop and finishing with a wrap party at Laverys, it was a flawless shoot with an excellent crew.
Keep an eye out for it in the Virgin Media Shorts competition.

It’s an interesting, fun short film and I’m really excited about playing the starring role of ‘Billy’.
Billy has an odd obsession.
He takes pride in his work as a nightclub PR rep between the hours of nine and five, but Billy’s life’s passion is collecting 2p coins. He takes incredible joy in his small change hobby, learning the value of enjoying the tiny things life has to offer.
The director is Will Maloney and it will be produced by Larry Cowan of Lamb Films. 2p will be entered into the Virgin Media Shorts Competition. (No doubt you will hear more from me shortly, when I’ll be asking for your votes!!!)
I can’t wait to get started!
