Alex | Derek Normalbeard

Filmmaker, photographer and artist based in Bristol and working across the UK. In Roll Britannia he plays Derek Normalbeard, a semi-retired gangster with a totally real and normal beard (think Michael Caine but shorter and angrier). As our story begins, Derek seeks adventure to break up the monotony of his reluctant retirement, but as he joins up with a crew of seafaring ne’er do wells, pieces of his sordid past begin to come to light. Will Derek ever calm down, and can he learn to trust?
