It’s 40 years since the murder of John Lennon, a moment trapped in Mickey Sharpe’s mind as he imagines that fateful night. After struggling to live on minimum wage, Mickey decides, "you’re better off being a gangster because you’ve got more of a chance."

John Lennon has now been dead as long as he lived.

Today, we have the ability to trap any moment in time using the technology we hold in our pockets, however, we can only imagine the night of the 8th of December 1980 outside the Dakota Apartments in New York, when John Lennon was shot four times in the back.

 
 
CARMELO VIVIANI
ACTOR, MICKEY SHARPE

Carmelo studied acting at the Academy of Live and Recorded Arts.

 

He is a fresh young face with raw natural talent that Director, Steven A. Johnson, was excited to be able to work with - to sculpt and capture the very essence of each and every aspect of Mickey's complex character and his life's misfortunes.

 

Carmelo has performed extensively on stage and recently worked on projects overseas.

TOM KELLER
ACTOR, SIDNEY VEX

Tom has appeared in all manner of productions from Features and Theatre to TV and radio, as well as music video.

 

Tom's portrayal of Sidney Vex was well crafted and executed; he brought so much to the character, complementing the performances of his costars.

 
Steven A. Johnson
Producer / Director

Concept & character creator, scriptwriter, professional lyricist, composer, and author: Steven's natural ability to imagine and execute each idea has led the process of the production of The Moment Trap - The Lennon Dream.

 

His keen eye and an acute understanding of behaviour and mannerisms enable him to portray the specific detail in each and every scene.

 

Steven has over 20 years’ experience of writing, producing and directing and has produced many commercial and dramatised promotional films. Throughout the making of The Moment Trap - The Lennon Dream, he has valued his discussions with his friend Berny Stringle.

Greg Stewart
Producer

Greg graduated from Falmouth School of Art and has 30 years of experience working in and around the creative industry. His broad skill sets are invaluable in a business where so many wide-ranging disciplines are employed.

Berny Stringle
Friend and Consultant

Friend and consultant of Steven A. Johnson, Berny has provided a wealth of knowledge and experience, spanning over 40 years in the industry. He has written, directed and produced award-winning radio, TV and cinema commercials including Brook Bond, Birds Eye, Schweppes, Duracell, Guinness and many more.

 

Awards include:

- Grand Prix in Cannes

- Coup de Venezia in Italy

- Numerous Clios in New York

- 'Best Director' at The Hollywood Festival

- The Paris Art Director's Club Award

 

He then turned his attention to writing children's books, documentaries, TV Comedy/Drama and even a stage musical.

 

We are proud and honoured to have Berny on board and relish his stories of great names from TV and Film.

Paul Mckay
Actor / Crew

Paul McKay, an actor known for his role in BBC’s NCS Manhunt, was heavily involved in pre-production, including location scouting and test scene-shooting. With his many years of industry experience, Paul has been and continues to be a hugely resourceful member of the whole production process.

ROB CLYDESDALE
COMPOSER

From his personal website: "The  next  thing  we  knew  Bowie  was listening  to  us  jamming  upstairs  in the  live  room  and  asked  if  we  wanted  to  work  on  some  of  the  soundtrack  with  him. I learnt a hell of a lot in a short  space of  time working with him. The  pieces  of  music then became  the  album of   the  same  name  and   our  little  band   started  to  get  noticed   by  influential  people in  the industry."

 

Rob's natural talent and skill in music composition shines throughout the film, carrying the audience as they embark on an emotional journey allowing them to get lost in the story. The indisputable precision of each and every beat, complements the imagery on screen.

Recently Rob has worked on Sky One's 'Intelligence'.
