Former Doctor Who co-star Noel Clarke – companion Mickey Smith – is taking part in a live webchat at 1pm GMT today to give his top tips to rising filmmakers ahead of his next big screen offering – 4-3-2-1.
Noel Clarke

The 35-year-old film maestro has come a long way since his days on Doctor Who as Mickey Smith, with his screenplays Kidulthood and the sequel Adulthood having received critical acclaim. Last year he received a BAFTA Rising Star award and has worked with BBC Blast on a project to encourage teens to get creative.

He’s now ready to give his top tips to encourage all budding directors or anyone with a video camera to create the next big Ad in this live webTV show. Noel is involved in the launch of the Doritos ‘King of Ads’ campaign, where budding movie makers and anyone with a great idea, have a chance to make the next TV ad and win up to £200,000 in the process. The winner will have their advert watched by millions as it airs across British national television from 12th June to 11th July. Not bad for your first commercial!

To find out how to succeed on the small or big screen, tune in and get some advice on being the next big thing from the current one.

This is likely to be a fascinating discussion – content on is usually made available for viewing after the event, so don’t worry if you can’t see the discussion unfold.
