It is such a pleasure to share this piece of work today, ‘I’m The Man’ – film written and directed by Anthony Byrne (Peaky Blinders), featuring actor Cillian Murphy reading a text I wrote for him that he completely magnified by his brilliant interpretation. Thank you to all the team, cast, mgmt, who made this possible. I had a great time shooting it in Manchester despite the cold and the challenges of a one shot performance. Link in bio. Enjoy! .

The opening scene takes you into a dark damp night. The camera pan makes you take a right turn into an alley that could change your life forever. The European collaboration seemingly points at the American political turmoil with the opening spoken word performed by Cillian Murphy.
The epicene Beth has no trouble keeping your attention as she flexes her singing, acting and physical performing talents in every second of the film, offering samples of her stretched out diversity. This short film as opposed to “video” is a piece of art with an electric metal rhythm. The lyrics and Beth’s performance allows you 4 minutes to feel what it is to be a powerful force in a super rough world. Beth is sexy, fearless and intimidating all at the same time in this visual piece of art by Anthony Byrne.
