Please read here about Nigel’s film roles and his involvement with Scarlet Cherub.
Nigel’s show reel can be seen on
2005 ‘Just One More Night’ [Scarlet Cherub] - The actress and incidental characters
This short film is based on one of Nigel’s lyrics. So far the film has been shown at various film festivals, including the Hollywood DV Festival 2005, where it won an award for best make up, the Swansea Bay Film festival 2008, where it won the
award for best narrative short, and the Heart of England International Film Festival 2008, where it won the award for best
international short. Also shown at various short film events, satellite TV etc etc. ”Pat Garrett's Just One More Night
delivers a well crafted performance from Nigel Osner as an aging entertainer, reflecting on a life less than glamorous, but
one convincing enough to appear that way to his public. Osner also subtly scripted this performer's life, so it's doubly
hard to separate art from life. Which imitates the other? Hard to tell, in this very enigmatic film performance. But that's
the point isn't it?” James MacGregor netribution 3 www.netribution.co.uk
