As the Autumn leaves begin to fall Saturday November 2nd draws nigh.
ESSEX GENERAL BRANCH MEETING 11:00 The Link, Trinity Methodist Church, Chelmsford
MEET DANNY OWEN
The Committee are very excited to announce that our next speaker on Saturday Nov. 2nd in Chelmsford is the multi-talented and highly entertaining Danny Owen.
Please bring all your Equity friends and prepare for a chuckle!
Danny was a child performer and appeared with Jack Wild in the film Oliver! Since then he has worked with dozens of big names, filled those in between times as a supporting artist and has gradually cornered the market in solo tribute acts.
He can give you Sir Tom Jones, Neil Diamond, Julio Iglesias and many more....but of course we're not booking him to perform! Instead he will take us on a frequently hilarious stroll through half a century in the business.
Danny has also developed into a highly praised photographer, specialising in flowers in astonishing detail - and also in wild animal portraits which showcase a skill to "capture the moment."
No doubt Danny will be recalling his big TV break, with Matthew Kelly on Stars In Their Eyes.....!
Come along to Trinity Link, Trinity Methodist Church, 48 Rainsford Road, Chelmsford CM1 2XB.
There is a car park to the left of the church. Coffee etc 10.45am, the meeting starts with Danny at 11am. Afterwards we often adjourn to the County Hotel bar, right opposite our venue!
Last Meeting update from Liz Mullen
Equity’s Screen and New Media Committee, in conjunction with the D/deaf and Disabled Members Committee, are delighted to announce that thery will be holding a ground-breaking video games event on 30 October at Graeae Theatre in East London aimed at Equity’s D/deaf and disabled performer members. The purpose of the day will be both to introduce our performer members to work opportunities within the games industry, but also to open the dialogue with the games industry about improving employment prospects for D/deaf and disabled performers, working on ways to enhance inclusivity throughout the game pipeline, from concept through to delivered game.
The structure of the day will start with a morning of practical workshops on mo-cap and voice acting for union members, led by industry professionals. In the afternoon, the event will be opened up to the wider games industry, who will join the performers for talks and panel discussions.
The event is free of charge and open to D/deaf and disabled members of Equity and to games industry professionals, especially those who might be able to help with employment opportunities. Space is limited, however, so tickets will be on a first come, first serve basis.
Looking forward to meeting you on Saturday 2nd. November Best Wishes
Martyn Harrison [Chair] & Dee Mardi [Vice Chair]
