Q&A with Cameron

Tell us something about yourself that nobody knows.
I have never watched Harry Potter, nor do I want to.  

What tips can you share that have helped to shape your career?
Honestly, roll up your sleeves and do it. When I say that, I mean life. Because if you haven’t lived a life your not really going to have much art to give now are you? 

Best gig.
Hard one. Each has its merits. Got to say our first production at Kingdom Kome with the short film version of The Ring of Beasts was highly special. One of the most profound moments I’ve ever experienced was in the “pit scene” with Jonathan Pienaar. That is the standard and calibre that is a deeply rewarding artistic experience.  

Advice you would give to your 18 year old self in one sentence.
I’d smile and say, “Keep going Cam, AG2G all the way. Stop stressing”.  

Best advice you were given when you started out?
Oh, there’s been much, one particularly fun one was “Stop Schmacking. Just act.”
