Young Actors/Actress required for exciting off-beat short film - Brighton

Casting complete. Applications are now closed.

An evocative and off-beat childhood tale where two odd worlds converge.

This is a good opportunity to be part of a small but high-end production which will constitute excellent showreel material. Our first production was showcased at various UK film festivals and we aim for this next one to be screened further afield.

We are assembling a small team of creative, hardworking and like-minded individuals (some very experienced, others keen learners) to collaborate on a range of projects so there is potential for this to lead to more work in the future.

Synopsis
A young boy wakes up in the backseat of his car to a place that he doesn’t recognise. Left alone for a while by his parents, he encounters an enchanting world amid his immediate surroundings and forms an unlikely bond with a new friend. But is this an ordinary reality? Or could it be the product of his imagination?

All minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Payment details: expenses paid

Sam (Lead Actor)

This role requires a charismatic and thoughtful performer with strong non-verbal skills/expression. There is no dialogue in the part so the ability to convey feelings and emotions through facial expression, body language, smiling, etc. is key. One of the key scenes of the story involves engaging (no physical contact) with a girl of similar age so unlike the character he will be playing, a confident performer is desirable. This is the lead role and a challenging one.
