The Fight – The Promo

Francis Annan and the boys at Full Measure Films put this together for us. I like it. It’s meant to be used in churches, on Facebook and so on to promote the forthcoming London Men’s Convention.

It’s not passed me by that on the year when we sell out the first bout in a matter of weeks we’ve put together a promo film to whip up support! Ironic. Or just bad planning? But it does at least provide an insight in what we think we’re trying to do with the Convention.

I have no idea what your reflections are. But mine were threefold.

1. I have a massive nose.

2. I possess the gift of nodding sagely in agreement with the wisdom of others.

3. I can be extremely earnest when I want to get my point across.

But once I got over the discomfort of seeing myself on film I realised that we had some good stuff to say. Well, the others did. But if it gets guys to the LMC then I’ll be happy.

    Love it Perks. Love the nose, love the zeal for men to be men, love the imitating of Keller, Piper and Carson T4G videos (still trying to work out who was who!), love those great Annan angles, love the LMC.

      You’re just back from holiday. It’s Monday morning. And the first thing you do is read blogs! Do some work. You could start on your chapter for the Men’s Convention book!
      Good to have you back.
      Poor guy was in the Fleet Street Offices quietly checking his e-mails of St Helen’s and Clarkie dragged him out. That’s the kind of influence he has! Think he spent most of his time playing patience.

    At the end of the filming did one of you say, “Well, it would be a shame to be sat around this table, and not play a game of Poker with a strong whiskey. Who’s in?”

      For the country’s foremost children’s worker, you are worringly familiar with a whole load of potential vices …
