season one: iconic moments

Jeremy Brett was a very big, famous actor in England who played Sherlock Holmes in many shows in the 1980s and 1990s, and he was an eccentric, grand old-school actor and a very charming man. I was going to do this show ‘Coasting’ as a co-lead and knew nothing about cameras or films. In those days, it took 30 days to shoot an hour of television, which beggars belief today. So I was only on his show for six days as a guest and asked him for tips. And he said, ‘My dear boy, I will have you called for every day of the shoot,’ and he did, and I sat on set and he took me through all of it, how to hit your mark, how to walk down a dolly track without looking at it. It was a very concentrated course in film acting.

Jup, these are the marketing techniques of a smart-ass indie authoress. I read somewhere this WILL work, but it might have been in The National Enquirer, so…
However, if it doesn’t work and I’m not suddenly picked by the NY Times for a book review, then I have at least posted a picture to this site, which one is supposed to do on the one occasion or other.

Now gentlemen, if you will give me your undivided attention
