|Just thought I would have a quick moan about Guitar star which has recently started on Sky Arts. |
Last year I was approached by the BBC to record Cavatina for an episode of Casualty by director Graeme Harper. Naturally I was very excited about this and went on to meet all the cast and crew which was a lot of fun and a really amazing experience. The scene once filmed, was cut by the executive producer Oliver Kent! It would have been great advertising for me.
This year, I had an email from Johnny Brinchmann, a researcher for Sky Arts inviting me to join in their guitar competition. Since they approached me directly, I thought I had a pretty good chance. I filled in all the dates that would be unavailable as they were already booked for weddings and events, which obviously would not be moved. A production assistant then called me up for a chat and to ask if I would be able to attend an audition somewhere outside of Cardiff and I said that would not be a problem and then I heard nothing further!
Luckily I love my work so much that none of this has put me off :)
