A graveyard of past performances, put together before it was possible to have a Youtube channel........

I now have one, and all my available video can be found here

Einstein's Sister - short film 2005

Excerpt from a very funny take on sports films. That's me on the voiceover and the coach character at the same time.

The Boys from the Bush - tv comedy

Produced by Verity Lambert, a vehicle for a cast of high profile English comedians, but we got a little subplot to play with.
Jan Freidl, Nadine Garner, and Vikki Hammond

King Oscar Sardines - tvc

Underwater sequences were shot in the Channel Nine Melbourne swimming pool because it had a viewing window which made shooting easier.
The pool has long since been filled in.

ITP - tvc

Interesting thing about this ad was that it was short term, one state (NSW). A year later, touring in Tasmania, I saw it on the telly there. The head office declared that they had told other branches they weren't to use it. The Hobart office denied this. Eventually Equity threatened to point out to the public that a starving actor was being ripped off by a company that wanted the public to trust it, and the rollover fee immediately appeared. Thank you Equity.

The Age - tvc

Nothing to tell. Don't even remember doing it.

Holeproof - tvc

The absolute proof that I will do anything for money. Shot in Orange NSW. Met Sam Neill briefly after the shoot because his wife at the time was the make up artist.

Isuzu - tvc

Another forgotten experience

The Late Show - tv sketch comedy

Guest spot on popular comedy show.

Telecom - tvc

Got a trip to Broken Hill to do this one, and got to drink at the famous Silverton pub.

Phillip Island - tv doco

Part of a promotional video selling Phillip Island as a tourist destination. You'd see this in the public library from time to time.
Baby wombats will run after anything that's moving so they don't lose their mum. Whenever I moved, she did.

Le Snak - tvc

This ad ran for 8 years which meant that I was 'the Le Snak Man' everywhere I went.
Sadly, the most fame I ever achieved in my long acting career. It went from being something I was embarrassed about, to a nice little cheque to look forward to every year.
It was shot on top of the old ICI building at the top end of Lonsdale st (Melbourne).
The fairly obvious model at the end fooled a surprising number of people.
After about 6 years they decided to shoot some new ads. But everyone apparently preferred the original so after a year they went back to it.

Le Golf - tvc

Le Aerobics - tvc

Le Stroll - tvc

ACI - tvc

Back in the days when Alan Bond was a business force to be reckoned with, Ross Williams and I were flown to Perth to shoot this ad on the banks of the Swan River. We were extolling the virtues of beer in glass because Alan owned the bottling works and was trying to lure sales from the tinny. As Ross was required to take a good swig each take, he was pretty blotto by the end of the day. Don't think the campaign worked.

The Fast Lane - tv comedy

Working on this series was one of my greatest experiences, certainly in the world of TV. These scenes with Gary Adams as my sidekick. Gary is more noted for his bands - The Whittle Family, The Pete Best Beatles and The Clip Clop Club. Co-written by the late John Clarke and Andrew Knight

Flying Doctors - tv drama

Not of a lot of note except for the presence of 'Bud' Tingwell, WWII pilot and successful film actor in England during the Ealing Studios heyday
Learn about his incredible life here

Cop Shop - tv drama

My first role on TV. Circa 1978.

Cop Shop - tv drama

Nothing to do with my acting. Just that some of the old Cop Shop scenes were very interesting for what they captured of life at the time. Many of the locations are unrecognisable now, and I love this shot featuring one of the trains of the day. So evocative. We used to travel with the doors open! The woman getting off the train with the baby is Jacki Weaver who made it big in the U.S. in her 60s
