Martin, played by Keiron Self (My Family, High Hopes) is coming to the London Welsh Centre in February to present his film. This award-winning show is an unique filmmaking / live performance project.
It’s also funny… and a bit cringe.
It’s a collaboration between Keiron (co-writer The Canterville Ghost) and Kevin Jones (writer of Cardiff Boy and Bafta Cymru winning editor of Y Sŵn).
YouTube and TikTok may seem like a younger person’s medium, but not for 50-something Martin Decker. He’s embarked on a brand-new career as an internet superstar. For the past year he has been making homemade TV shows in his bathroom. But despite his claims to have the full support of his family, his life falls apart. He is now the subject of a film that is part documentary, part surreal tragic comedy. With complete access to all his videos, fan and critic interviews, found footage and even animation, Martin’s motivations and creative urges are investigated. He has the need to make a connection but who is his real target audience – his fans or his family?
Martin’s film features a host of Cardiff acting talent (Lynne Seymour, Richard Elis, Kev McCurdy, Elin Phillips, Francois Pandolfo). As well as introducing the film Martin will also be available for a short Q&A afterwards if anyone wishes to question him about his genius cinematic talent.
