The other night I was sat watching the film Wanted, starring James McAvoy. During the movie he googles his name and gets zero matches in the results. As I have seen the movie several times, I wasn't paying a 100 % attention, and thought why not have a go with my name.
One of the first results I found was in the original Star Wars movie one of the rebel pilots was played by David Stone, pictured above.
I also found a British sci-fi writer who writes both novels and comics, an American comedian, I also know of a Dave Stone who was an artist at Games Workshop, this all seemed ironic, with my love of all the subject material above ! LOL
As I continued down, I found an actor/ producer in America, while reading through his films, I saw he was credited with being in Strontium Dog a fan film. Now long time followers know that the Dave Stone in that movie is me ! The following day I tried to get in touch with IMDB to point out the oversight, first step was I had to register, to be able to contact them, at least they did a free 30 day trial. Once I got my account, I found a contact email and sent in the discrepancy, the long of it is as I don't have a page, as I'm never likely to be in another movie, they did nothing ! To say I'm disappointed with the result would be an understatement, but that's showbiz I guess !
For anyone who has never seen the film here is a link Search Destroy, it has won multiple awards, and was made by the two Steve's who are film makers. If you enjoy that you may also like their other fan film Judge Minty both films were welcomed by Rebellion, who produce 2000 ad the comic that the storylines are based on.
At the end of the day it was a great experience at the shoot, and one I will treasure always, as for a Hollywood star accepting credit for something he didn't do is pretty low in my books !
Next time I promise normal service will return, and back to more important things, so until next time stay safe and have fun !
