It's hard to believe that two years have passed and I've made 20 Vlogs for my feature film The Search for Simon, Oh and an extra secret Vlog that I forgot about. And two other Vlogs that ended up being Featurettes. So that's at least 23 Vlogs. And 45 minutes of Deleted scenes, and a pop video and a feature film!
So I've been busy.
But the film is complete! We've won awards and The Search for Simon will be in the shops soon!
You can order your copy NOW from AMAZON and it'll be out on the 7th of July 2014! (Link below).
So this is me saying Goodbye - I've enjoyed making this film more than anything else I've ever done in my life, and I will be sad not to play David Jones anymore.
So have a watch and think if you'd like to help me make my next movie and do something wonderful!
This is The Search for Simon the 2nd feature film from British Writer/Director Martin Gooch.
In 1979 David Jones’ younger brother Simon disappeared and has never been seen since.
30 years later David is still looking and The Search For Simon has become his life and his obsession.
He must face the future, face his family and face his friends.
But most importantly face the past...
A very dark comedy in a world of science fiction.
