Not the Captain

So I spent a day shooting my scene for The Middleman. (The rest of the role being the voice-over for my puppet alter ego) I must report that, while everyone was nice, I felt like a shmuck. Why? Well, firstly, because I looked like the guy from the Captain Morgan ad. Like 15th Century explorer Jan van Riebeeck. Like a performer on the Walk of Fame. And secondly, because I think my puppet version was better on the day. It was consistent, took direction well, hit it's mark every time and never got tired.

I, on the other hand, was just wooden.

And I nearly ate my moustache.


Oh, wait. I was also creepy.

Wooden and creepy.


  1. omg Gideon. That mustache...

  2. o.o Oh wow. xD
    Hey I just wanted to let you know that I just picked up a copy of Final Fantasy tactics and once again you did an amazing job. ^-^ Hopefully Balthier will appear in more of square-enix's games.

  3. omg Gideon... the moustache and the turban/fez/thing on your head!! Was any of it by chance the wig that was lying in gutter? And by that, I mean your moustache!

  4. Wow! That moustache... I don't know what to say about it... just wow... (laughs)

    Well, at least you were creepy! ^_~
    That's the good thing.
