Young actor needed for a short film - London
London, United Kingdom
Actor (middle Eastern looking-11 years)
We are looking for a young actor/middle eastern looking who could play the role of the "Son" of a terrorist suspect in our upcoming film.You don't have any lines but its physical acting. You will be using your emotions to create the physicality. We will be able to help you do that, if needed.
It might be an idea that you arrived with your parent for the casting and the filming.
You will be needed for a maximum of two days during the week, in the last week of August.
We are working on a very small budget so we will only be able to cover your expenses this time.
We will cover travels expenses, offer refreshments and meals and credits for the film.
The feedback so far is great, and there is a strong possibility it will be made into a feature in due course.
This short film (Conflict) will also work as a trailer for the feature film, once we have put this out to film festivals.
A terrorist suspected (Shahid) is being held and tortured in an unidentified location, somewhere believed to be in the Middle East. Locked in solitary confinement, he depends upon his faith and the memories of his wife and a son in these darkest hours of his life. A British government official (Mr Stanley) is his only hope for his freedom.
But things change when a teenage boy is detained in a solitary cell next to his. As the boy suffers torture and abuse, his faith diminishes as he questions the very existence of God. He then makes a desperate attempt to save the boy but only to find out the shocking truth about the boy, Mr Stanley and his very own existence. In this hard hitting gruesome drama, Shahid faces conflict between belief and realism.
All minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
