Greetings from Temecula

Indie coming-of-age feature Greetings From the Shore opens the Temecula film festival today and I'm off to check it out. It's my first film festival (I know - you'd think I go to these all the time), so I'm keen to see what's what. I played a supporting role of a Russian sailor who's a migrant laborer on the Jersey shore.

Leads Kim Shaw and David Fumero are great as the unlikely couple who hook up one summer. It was a great opportunity working in the picture postcard town of Lavalette and to play with the gang, which included good buds Lars Arentz-Hansen and Ron Geren - and our intrepid leader, Greg Chwerchak.

For more info, you can visit the Temecula Film Fest website.
There's also a great review of the film HERE.

Apparently we get ferried to the red carpet in vintage cars! I can see the puzzled expressions on people's faces now, as I cruise by in my open-top MG: "Who the %&$# is that?!"


Not a bad way to spend your birthday...


  1. Belated happy birthday!

    Hey, just saw your resume: you're slipping back into Balthier's leather trousers and dodgy shoes for the Final Fantasy Tactics remake? If so, that's great news. You really bring him to life.

  2. Happy Birthday!
    You've got the best voice in the world!
    I love Balthier and your YouTube videos, especially "The Incredible Breakfast Band"!
    Thanks for all.

    PS: Sorry for my bad English, I live in Belgium and I am in my third year of English lessons.
    Oh, I forgot. I'm 14 (soon 15!)


  3. Happy (belated) Birthday, Gideon :) Looking forward to listening to your performance in Mass Effect (still trying to guess which character you're playing...)

  4. Happy belated birthday Gid! (yeah I know, don't call me Gid!) I have no excuse for not wishing you a nice birthday, no alien abduction, no natural disaster, no witness protection program, no good excuse. So why didn't I scream across cyberspace on time? Don't know. Anyway, pleae forgive me. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! (that's at least early.)
