The boy who knew too much: a child prodigy

This is the true story of scientific child prodigy, and former baby genius, Ainan Celeste Cawley, written by his father. It is the true story, too, of his gifted brothers and of all the Cawley family. I write also of child prodigy and genius in general: what it is, and how it is so often neglected in the modern world. As a society, we so often fail those we should most hope to see succeed: our gifted children and the gifted adults they become. Site Copyright: Valentine Cawley, 2006 +

Vikingdom Teaser Trailer Released

As regular readers will know, I played a role in Vikingdom, the KRU studios epic action adventure film. Last night, at 9 pm, KRU released a one minute, seven second teaser trailer for Vikingdom. I am visible in it, to the eagle eyed (try the 22 second, in the right hand upper corner).

Here it is:

Vikingdom will be released, I expect, in the next few months. My role, Warick, is a significant one in that I am one of the questors, in the main quest, which occupies most of the film. I am, therefore, onscreen, for much of the time.

The funny thing is, I never would have expected to have been in an epic action adventure film. It was a good experience. The hero of the film, Eirick, was played by Dominic Purcell, of Prison Break fame.

Please let me know what you think of the trailer below. I hope you go on to see the film when it comes out. It certainly looks like it will be enjoyable to watch...and it will give you a chance to see some of my acting, in action, as it were.

Happy watching.

A gifted child, Devang, can do more complex tasks than an ordinary child. This means that they can reach for higher professions, or situations in which intelligence is an enabling factor. This means their future can be more interesting, varied and open than an ungifted person. However, they may experience jealousy and opposition from the less gifted.
