... act in the theater:

"Histόrias Misόginas" by "Cão Solteiro" (2002, Lisbon) ........................................................................................ as a devilish pianist

(Once upon a time Anamateur played the part of a red-costume-dressed pianist / member of an upper class London-style men's club, who provoked, with his odd melodies, his fellow members to narrate little tales of misogyny... The play was an adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's collection of dark tales, done by the highly-regarded Sá Nogueira sisters' "Cão Solteiro" company in Lisbon.)



... act in the movies:

"Ρισάλτο" by Vassilis Vafeas (2016, Greece) ............................................................................... as the friend of Irini with the melodica

(Ingenious Greek auteur Vassilis Vafeas' allusion to Goddard's legendary scene with Jean Paul Belmondo and Raymond Devos from "Pierrot le Fou" (Devos portrays the man in the port whom Belmondo's character meets before the suicide scene) was done with Anamateur singing in Greek the famous "Est-ce que vous m' aimez?" line. In Vafeas' latest movie, "Risalto", Anamateur, apart singing (and playing with his melodica), also tries to seduce a girl or two...)

"I'll see you in my dreams" by Filipe Melo (2004, Portugal) ...................................................................................................... as a zombie

(Portuguese jazz musician, film director and comic book writer's Filipe Melo first movie, "I'll see you in my dreams", was a zombie one... Apart the fact that it received many awards in international film festivals, it is considered to be a "cult" movie by now in Portugal. The zombies were played in great part by Melo's fellow jazz musicians - among them Anamateur...)



... participate in a compilation cd:

"Summer Jazz Flirt" by "Jazz & Τζαζ" magazine (2013, Greece) .........................................with "Redemption blues for a lovesick warrior"

(A few years before "Jazz & Τζαζ" magazine pass into history (it was the unique magazine in Greece about jazz), journalist Nikos Fotakis had written a thorough article about new representants of jazz in Greece. The issue was accompanied by a cd and Anamateur was part of it, with his most intimate song from "One doubt arose in the mind of a noble vigilante".)



... provide the soundtrack of a short movie:

"Διαμάχες" by Vassilis Vafeas (2017, Greece, to be released) ............................................with improvisations on "For you and your baby"

(The upcoming new version of aforementioned director Vafeas' short movie about Greek writer Vassos Daskalakis, who was a worker in the Laurion mines in his childhood (this caused his premature death), is adorned with Anamateur's last song from his second (upcoming) album. Release is scheduled for the autumn of 2017.)
