Ian Hart

Way back; Christmas 2013, my friend and RADA peer, Trevor Penton, interviewed his mate, Ian Hart, on the subject of fame (and where to find it).

I shot this with three cameras – all quite different as I recall. Trevor now runs a coaching company called The Flourish Academy. No idea what happened to Ian.

As a rule, I tell clients I can’t concentrate on the performance of the interviewee. My focus is, literally, on the camera and sound. But Ian’s insight, especially with two RADA grads in the room, both of whom are doing different things, was highly engaging.

This is the interview in full. I hope you concentrate on my lighting, camera work, audio and edit but, especially if you’re an actor, listen to what Ian has to say.

The moral is: never give up.
