This is an exciting new feature film called A Mile In His Soul written by Canadian comedy writer Morley Shulman.
We already have some cast in place including an award winning actor in one of the lead roles and also building a great crew including a DOP that has worked on some high profile films including Bond, The Avengers and Harry Potter. We are also bringing some well known actors for some of the other lead roles. We are looking to fill some smaller speaking roles but which are still important to the story.
We are aiming to film in November of this year so it can be completed by in time for the festival season. The budget is estimated at a minimum of £200,000.
We are planning to film in Edinburgh but travel expenses etc will be covered.
We have almost completed the soundtrack to our movie with many great artists getting involved including Canadian Rock Legends Klaatu who originally created the song 'Calling Occupants Of Interplanetary Craft' which was later covered by The Carpenters. You can see more about all the artists involved and listen to their songs at our website www.amileinhissoul.com
We would like to see a video showreel if you have one but if not we would like you to do a video audition with details that we will send to you. Roles need to be filled as soon as possible.
We are also linking up with an international charity to help raise awareness and also funds for them due to the subject of the movie.
Please also apply for extra roles of mixed ages.
Malcolm would seem to have it all. A steady job, his own place and plenty of disposable income. He also has a secret- he "moonlights" in the evening as a homeless person. ??Through a series of unfortunate circumstances, Malcolm loses it all- his job, his home and even his money. With nowhere to turn, Malcolm is forced to live on the streets. While there, he encounters some less than desirable people that could ultimately cost him his life. Through good fortune and relying on his wits, Malcolm is able to escape certain calamity.
However, as things look at there bleakest, he comes across a fellow street person named Kiki. Unbeknownst to him, Kiki is an undercover reporter doing an expose on the homeless. As she shows him the ways of the streets and a deadline to write her articles that’s rapidly approaching, Kiki quickly realizes there’s a better story in front of her. Through her prodding, Malcolm goes on a quest to find his father who had abandoned the family years prior to live on the streets himself.
A MILE IN HIS SOUL is a dark comedy about a man who is forced to learn the meaning of acceptance through his struggle to survive, his quest to find his long since estranged father and even to win the love of the woman he wants most.
