Hey guys,

My mate and I have created a comedy character called Harry Ham. He's a washed up actor who starred in the Bill in the late 1990s and has fallen on hard times. In order to earn some money he's turned to Cameo video's for fans (celebrity video messages). Below is a trailer that gives you a flavour of what it is about:

and here's an example of one of his full videos (45 seconds) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f3R1DnGKmrM

His twitter account is twitter.com/harryhamactor if you want to follow him!

Would love to know what you think and if you enjoy it!

Cheers,
Steve

Careful - you might get a yellow card for multiple thread posting.
Worth a try though!

Yes I realised when I posted! I'll get rid of the one on showcase as was keen to get feedback so think this is the better forum for it? Thanks again for checking it out and great that you enjoyed it! Will delete the other post!

No skin off my nose - it's just that sometimes people get a bit shirty and that can translate into a less sympathetic viewing, if you get my drift.

Nobody really knows where the line falls between Critique and Showcase!

I watched the road video. Nice performance, and I think the concept has legs. The (admittedly brief) clip did feel very Partridge though (which is both good and bad, of course).

Thanks Gappy! Glad you liked the performance, the actor playing Harry is a guy called Rich Keeble who's great. Yeah, that cameo is quite Partridge you're right. Others aren't quite so Partridge but then we've got one or two that are perhaps even more Partridge so we need to make sure we tread that line carefully! Thanks for watching!
