Hello Roger,

I was just curious if that was you behind the camera, handheld, dressed in the kit for the American Football shot(s) in Ladykillers?

It was a great introduction to  "Lump"  and I'm not sure how much splicing was done to create the "shot", but it was something very unique in the film.

It was great re-watching it recently after listening to so many of your podcast episodes (It was the only film of yours I hadn't seen more than once)

Many thanks to you and James for giving back so much,

Jeremy Reagan

Yes, I was dressed up in the kit and the camera had a mask attached to the front so that I could bump with other team members. That is the only time I have been involved in American football. I support Manchester United.

What! ‘Man United‘, what happened to poor old Torquay?

I was worried this might get controversial. Imagine how many gigs Roger has lost over the years due to this blemish. Moving over the pond may have been wise.
