Actors/Extra's required for Short Anti-Gun film - London

Casting complete. Applications are now closed.

As a true writer, actor and director I make films that evolve from the bottom of my heart and from a deep passion. I write from experience and from situations that I have been in. I have since set up a trust organisation called C.R.I.M.E ( Creating Role Models In Media Enterprise) which works with ex offenders, at risk teens, gang affiliated youngsters etc and turns their stories in to short films which are later to be entered into festivals etc. W

hilst doing this we simultaneously run workshops which teach those involved, the craft of film making from writing,story boarding right up to filming, editing and PR. Not only does this help keep some of them off the streets but also helps give them focus and direction and in some cases a career drive.

This story will be hard hitting and gritty and hit home. It will be shot docu-drama style and with as much realism as possible.

The completed film will be screened in front of members of Operation Trident, various youth groups, councils, press as well as potential distributors etc.

Payment: TBC depending on role or Expenses only
