Lights! Camera! Action!!

Today marks my first entry into the world of movie-making.

My partner Pat has been involved in the filming of a new movie, Song for Marion. Starring Vanessa Redgrave, Terence Stamp and Christopher Eccleston, the plot revolves around a community choir. As she's in a community choir herself, Pat was auditioned for a part in the film's choir and was accepted.

Since then it's been work, work, work and I've hardly seen her, but when you're a movie star, that's just the way it is.

And today I get to play the part of a member of the audience at the choir's performance. I'm getting into my character now .... but I won't let it change my life.

How did it go? How much more filming is Pat involved in?

It was very tirng just being in the audience, so I can understand how tired Pat is at the moment. I think the filming is wrapped up now, but she has some additional recording to do with Terence.

Tiring it may have been, but it was fascinating and rewarding. I've even got the T-shirt.

It was fun, Vivien, but I'm not giving up the day job.

It sounds like a lot of fun and I can't wait to see it when it comes out. I'll be looking out for your both!

Thanks April, but it looks like you won't get to see it until 2014 at the earliest. There's a lot of touting it round film festivals first, it seems.
