I was invited by film students from the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) to act in their end-of-year project. (Edited to add: The short film is called Joy To The World, and my character was mean to Santa Claus.)
This post was originally published on my SQL Server blog. I worked on four films in 2015, three shorts and one feature-length movie, all shot in Calgary where I live. That has resulted in seven IMDb credits for me, someone who earns a living as a DBA. If nothing else, that experience has scratched an … Continue reading Filmmaking as a Metaphor for the DBA

While it would be against the rules to tell you too much about the content, I can tell you … Continue reading Behind the Scenes
I’m happy to be here, and to say hello to all of you. My name is Randolph, and I grew up in Johannesburg, South Africa. In 2010 I moved with my spouse to Canada, and have been setting up shop here in the performing arts ever since. I’ve got a page on IMDb, which is … Continue reading Hello from a professional Calgary actor!
