Circa 2000? of late I have spread my creative wings somewhat and have been doing a little (emphasis on little) bit of acting. "Stickmen" (a really cool New Zealand film) and "Lord Of The Rings" are two of the projects I have worked on in the last year. In one I appear as a kind of hairy Thunderbird puppet and the other I play a variety of characters, none of which (if any) is immediately recognisable as myself. Still it was fun while it lasted :-)
