This is a short film made by Newport students who went on to form the production company LIKE AN EGG headed by Keiran McGaughey. I only play a small part and it’s here mainly because it includes performances by Dorien Thomas and Brian Hibbard who died far too young last year. I’ve worked with them both a lot and they were both huge talents and their involvement in this low profile film demonstrates they were never beyond supporting the next generation of talent. I know Brian and Dorien would wish LIKE AN EGG all the success I know is coming their way.
‘Dream it Build it’ was dreamt up by Valleys Kids as a way to acknowledge the generous support of Knox & Wells construction company who helped them to upgrade their Residential Centre on the Gower, whilst they were transforming Soar Centre in Penygraig. Valleys Kids demanded a poetic rap for the music video..so, of course, I sent them off to get a proper poet, alas they refused and this is the result.
