Episode 08: Jamie the Secret Cinema Actor – ED & FRIENDS

2016 is here and Ed & Friends kicks off with a with a special bumper edition, half interview and half movie review!

img_6753img_6752

Ed had not seen James Alexander-McInnes for ten years before he bumped straight in to him at Secret Cinema: Empire Strikes Back, so Ed invited Jamie on the podcast and they caught up with life and the actor’s process, particularly in the unique format that Secret Cinema provides.

Secret Cinema is a primarily London-based phenomenon that Jamie has worked on since 2010. They invite you to films without telling you what you are going to see, but they take you in and through the world of the movie. For Shawshank Redemption, they sent the audience to prison. For Bugsy Malone, they were invited to Fat Sam’s Speakeasy. But 2015 was the year that Star Wars returned, not just because of enormously successful release of The Force Awakens in cinemas. Secret Cinema recreated the planet Tatooine, the Death Star, the whole environment of A New Hope in a South London Warehouse for people to experience before watching The Empire Strikes Back. It was incredible. And Jamie was part of it!

We talk to Jamie about being a lifelong Star Wars fan and how it felt to live the Star Wars dream for 60 days! Ed and Jamie then talk at length about the plot of The Force Awakens after about 30 minutes, so SPOILER ALERT!

And for good measure, here’s the trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens… as if you haven’t seen it by now…

Episode 04: Fran the Clown – ED & FRIENDS

Ed is delighted to have on the podcast this week an actor, musician, improviser, presenter, stand-up comedian and children’s entertainer: Francesca Reid!

IMG_6520Francesca has been performing since she was an eccentrically imaginative toddler. Flanked by a full cohort of imaginary pals she would write great 6/8 word odes where her knack for vocabulary was evident in the brevity of said great works . . .

She also works with the Flying Seagull Project, a charity dedicated to bringing circus and arts-based fun to people in difficult times. For more info or to make a donation, please go to http://www.theflyingseagullproject.com
