I recently shot a film called “Stranded” – a New York Film Academy thesis film for director Nicol Dippenaar. I play a South African who emigrates to the United States and get to speak Afrikaans in the film (good thing I paid attention in school all those years).

The film was shot on the RedOne Mysterium X camera (same as they used on The Social Network) and the story follows my character after he’s accidentally shot on a hiking trip and descends into a coma while he navigates his mind to return to his real life and his girlfriend who is being investigated for the shooting. It was a lot of fun to shoot and the little bit of footage that I saw looked really great. I look forward to the release of the film in February at Warner Bros.
