7 May 2013

The good news is that Jason is now a full-time actor so we can expect to be seeing a lot more of him from now on. Look out for him in unexpected places too as he has been modelling for the Jeans to Genes charity and will soon be seen on the small screen in a TV drama being made for Sky TV called "At Home Abroad". Jason will appear as the Headteacher from episode 13 onwards. Watch this space for updates on when this will be broadcasted.

Jason can also be seen putting his stunt fighting to the test, when he plays a thug in Olafur Arnald's "this place was a shelter". He also appears, as lead actor, in a music video called "heartbeats". See our JasonAction pages for screen shots from the video.

Jason starts filming for Shameful Deceit (Feature Film for Cinema)

Shameful Deceit is a feature film about a man who cheats on women and eventually abuses his daughter. There are two stories running in parallel with a harsh twist towards the end. We can't reveal too much about the film at the moment as it is still in production. In the film, Jason (Jason Lee-Dear) plays a lead pivotal part in a scene in which he plays a school teacher who has an intensive discussion with the daughter.

On top of providing supporting work on feature films, Jason has also played lead actor in two short films.


Into the Night

This is a photography/video installation/short film project made up of a series of monologues. It is a portrayal of various emotions, addictions, inflictions and life experiences that have damned individuals lives. It focuses on the dark lives led by its characters.


Ambition

Another short film which is a fantasy drama about a man who is chasing his ambition in life. Made as an entry to the Reed Short Film Competition about 'Ambition'.

23 October 2012

The Last Supper (short film)


After all the glamour and glitz of the Amina premiere, Jason comes back down to earth in his latest film. This is an emotional thriller in which a homeless man and his wife spend a cold Valentine's day wishing they had what others have. The man struggles with emotion to trade a personal belonging to save him and his wife, however, there is a strong emotional twist.


Jason tells us:

Well, having got over the excitement from my film premier on Wednesday (17 Oct 2012), I shot my latest film on Sunday night in which I played a homeless man. The film was set in South West London and is intended for the 50 Kisses Film Competition. I can't say too much about it yet as the film is still in post production and hasn't been released so I will keep you updated.

What I can say is that it was an amazing film shoot and I was playing as a homeless man suffering from starvation.

Although I was not meant to be method acting, on this occasion, it happened accidentally during the shoot as I hadn't eaten for almost two days (due to travelling). This meant that I was very hungry when I had to act begging for food!! Not only that, my shoes had holes in them and with the rain, my feet were cold and wet and so I really did feel the part. So there was real method on set and the director and crew were very impressed with my performance.

As reported last time, the film Amina was premiered on 17 October and Jason was there to take his place on the red carpet.


Jason tells us:

"When I arrived at Leicester Square the crowds were surging and the atmosphere was ecstatic. Once I had been accredited and shown my VIP ticket, they conducted me to the red carpet on which one cast member walks the carpet at a time. When it was my turn, I thought, this is easy (I have done a smaller red carpet before at BAFTA), there's nothing to it - little did I know. As I entered the carpet, people were screaming my name and loads of photographers shouting for me to pose for their cameras. So many flashing lights I had no idea which camera to look at as there were so many - but of course I had to pose and milk it!! Then I moved on to the second part of the red carpet to which TV crews and their cameras pulled me aside for a television interview. I have one bit of advice for actors, it's usually some time after shooting the film that it goes to a premier, make sure you remember the film and re-read the script especially when a television interviewers says "So what is the film about". Nevertheless, I was able to give an overview, keep composed and show my excitement. After one TV interview on the red carpet, another camera crew grabbed me for another interview. By the time I got to the end of the red carpet, I think I had done about five or six interviews and I had no idea for how long I was on the red carpet but the feedback was that I looked good and the interviews were great. Wow, what a breathtaking, exciting, amazing experience. Having consulted the Oxford English Dictionary, I couldn't find a word that would even come close to describing how amazing it was to walk down the red carpet and see yourself on the big screen.

Followed by the film itself.


What an amazing film and an amazing cast with such a great storyline. At one point, I needed the toilet (as one does halfway through a film), so as I was just going down the aisle, my big part came on and one of the cinema staff said "OMG that's you, its actually you", to which embarrassingly I asked her to keep calm and not draw attention. Seeing the film was breathtaking and brings back all the memories from shooting it. Strangely, it brings back your character.

My big part came on.



Well what can I say, an amazing script, director, cast, set location and the best film premier I have ever seen. I will certainly aim to do that again."
