8 lead actors/actresses wanted for festival short film - London

Casting complete. Applications are now closed.

‘Loretta’s Shadow’ is a film project conceived by Writer & Director Joshua Littlehales as his first Professional Short Film endeavour, originally scheduled to be shot in 2010.
However, work overflowed and other Projects came to fruition which ultimately forced him to postpone the film until he felt he was ready to commit 100% to the time and dedication required for such a film.
That time has now come.
This film is ambitious and challenging for the time and money there will be to produce it and so the chosen cast will need to give an unprecedented amount of commitment and talent in order to achieve this film’s full potential. Think Martin Scorsese and Mean Streets or Steven Spielberg and Amblin.

The plan is to send the finished piece to Film Festivals around the world in order to garner attention and acclaim for our cast and crew, resulting in pathways to bigger and better creative adventures.

‘Loretta’s Shadow’ is a Story of eight seemingly ‘Normal’ individuals who unexpectedly come together one night and slowly and unknowingly become part of each other’s story.
The events that take place will impact their lives in forever.

The chosen Actors/Actresses MUST be available on the 21st, 22nd, 23rd and 24th May 2012 for rehearsals and Principal Photography.
