Alison Garner’s television career began with her first appearance on BBC’s Six Wives with Lucy Worsley in 2016. Since then she has gone on to work with BBC Television on numerous occasions, landing roles on Father Brown and Casualty. On the larger screen her credits include the lead role in award-winning dark short film Shapes of Mine directed by Giorgos Kapsanakis.

Alison is also establishing herself as a renowned actor in the increasingly important world of Motion Capture, playing both lead female characters in the groundbreaking Aardman BAFTA-nominated WW1 video game 11:11.

As well on-screen, Alison has become a leading figure in the industry for her prolific voice work as a TV/Film soundtrack singer, including her work as a vocalist on David Attenborough’s Dynasties, Green planet, Amazon Prime series Hanna, One Strange Rock for National Geographic, Philipa Lowthorpe’s Misbehaviour, HBO’s Run, and the Oscar-shortlisted soundtrack to Annihilation.

Ian Moore

Ian Moore completed his studies in Graphic Design in 1990 and had work accepted in four major national illustration competitions. Over the next thirteen years he worked as a freelance illustrator commissioned by various publications including Elle, Vogue, New Internationalist, The Telegraph and Financial Times. His illustrations featured in many design projects, international advertising campaigns, record and book covers. His paintings were widely exhibited in solo and group shows in London and galleries around the UK.

In the mid 2000’s Ian moved into the film and TV industry working on both sides of the camera as a stand in and production runner. Working on Gravity as one of the dead astronauts being a particular hi light which rarely gets a mention unless prodded with a particularly sharp stick. In 2009 Ian entered the world of casting as an assistant before going onto be a booker at a casting agency, having a meltdown, retiring and bothering Alison Garner into letting him collaborate and jot down some of his ideas.

"Writer and director Roberto Vivancos’ zero-budget vision delivers on all fronts – it is technically accomplished, flawlessly acted, and even manages to place its narrative within a broader social discourse – all in under two minutes. Vivancos should take great pride in what he has accomplished here, because it takes stringent planning and a tireless attention to detail to pull something like this off." - Indie Film Library (4.5 Stars)
