Posted in fractured, movies, potc, taking the flak, the royal, tv, website with tags , , , , , , , , , on 28 January, 2011 by ambarussa

Hamilton Hodell, Damian O’Hare’s management, have updated their website and Damian’s official page. Definitely looks much better now. They’ve also included a showreel, so you can now watch some snippets from “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl”, “The Royal”, “Taking the Flak”, “Casualty” plus hard-to-find “Wild West: Billy the Kid” and impossible-to-find “Fractured”:


Please also read HH’s “Fans” page!

Please note: I’m currently not at home, so I can’t update the website, only the blog here. Cheers!

Gallery updates and news from Allan the Herorat

I’m currently adding and switching the galleries, and while I’ve tripple-checked everything, it’s still possible that you might stumble over dead links. I hope everything will be fixed by next week. I noticed that links in the navigation bar are missing on some pages; I’ll correct those as soon as I’ll find the time.

The biggest addition is the new



where you can find pictures from some of the stage productions Damian O’Hare’s been in. Check out the one for “The Countess” – the scanner’s fixed and there are proper scans from the programme now.

Then there are new galleries for Taking the Flak, The Broken and promotional headshots, plus additional pictures in the Fractured gallery. Och, just have a look at it yerselves:


And now for something completely different…

Allan, the Herorat “adopted” by this website, sends his greetings from rainy Tanzania (they’re approaching winter now).  His training in REST (Remote Explosive Scent Tracing) is coming along very well. They continue to research the optimal and least optimal soil conditions, moisture content,  and various concentrations of TNT to see the perimeters if he and his colleagues can detect TNT. Looks like he finds it interesting to have different concentrations of TNT and different types of soil to work with every day!

Through the work with these samples, Allan and his colleagues provide important data to find the best working conditions for rat detection technology, and it will help to figure out in which weather conditions, locations and scenarios they are most effective.

Allan’s trainers John and Abdullah keep telling him that he’s becoming stronger and stronger at clearly indicating samples of dirt that contain TNT. Go, rat, go!

If you’d like to support Herorats as well, or maybe even adopt one of the four-pawed heroes, please go here.

Usual disclaimer: “Hero Rats” is the charity of choice of the webgnome running the website, not of Damian O’Hare.

Damian O’Hare in “Fractured” – short video clip

Posted in fractured, movies with tags , , , on 8 April, 2009 by ambarussa

“Fractured” (2007) is a short film featuring Damian O’Hare; it was shown at various movie festivals, but I think it’s safe to say that 99.9% of us have never seen it (and probably never will).

Responsible for the cinematography of “Fractured” was Harris Charalambous, director of photography. On his website, you can find a montage of his movie work, which also includes some very short clips of Damian in “Fractured”:

As I haven’t seen Fractured, I can’t tell if this is a still from the movie or a “behind the scenes” shot. Judging by the filming equipment, my bets are on the latter, though. Click on the picture for larger size.


Fractured: 15 January, 2008

Posted in fractured, website with tags , on 11 March, 2008 by ambarussa

We have overhauled the layout for the “theatre”, “movies”, “tv” and “various” pages. Each movie/play has now its own page, hopefully making the site easier to navigate and easier on the eyes. A few bugs which have slowed down the loading time of the pages have been swatted. That aside we have added additional links and some pictures for some theatre plays and linked to a report of a visitor on the set of “Fractured” in Cyprus.
