Eligo Productions is urgently seeking acting talent for ‘Eligo’, an innovative, web-based video narrative exploring themes of chance, choice, fate, fragmentation and multilinearity through a uniquely interactive experience. Casting will take place in Dublin City University on 16th and 17th of July (by appointment), with the video shoot scheduled for 23rd - 27th July (including evenings).

Note: The piece will consist of a series of rapid, short clips from a first person perspective. As the script contains minimal dialogue, we are seeking actors with the ability to deliver expressive performances though effective use of body language and facial expression.
As Eligo is part of a Masters Degree multimedia project, we are unable to offer any payment (excepting travel and subsistence costs). However, as a dynamic, web-based production, involvement in this piece will provide a valuable addition to any portfolio or show reel and increased exposure.
If interested, please submit a clear recent photo and/or portfolio (including links to any previous work) with your application. As auditions are by appointment only, we will be in touch to arrange a suitable time.
