One child actor for main role in short film - UK

Casting complete. Applications are now closed.

Hello my name is Gafyn Holt, I am 3rd year student of the Film & Video course at The University of South Wales, Newport, and Producer on this short film.

Orpheus is a short 3rd year student film

An eleven year old child lives alone in a spaceship. The child's strict daily routine is interrupted by noises from behind a door the child has never opened and the child becomes convinced that they may not be alone after all. Desperate for some sort of contact, the child works tirelessly to find a way through the door. It is a story that deals with the need for human interaction, and what the lack of it can do to a person.

We are looking for a young boy or girl with a playing age of 11-12 years old. The shoot will take place between the dates of the 14th- 20th of February 2011, I understand that this maybe difficult for possible auditionies due to these dates clashing with the school term but I would appreciate if you could inform your students.
We plan for the auditions to take place on the weekend of the 27th of November and will be held up at the University of Newport's Caerleon campus, I will give more information on the auditions to people who are interested on auditioning.

Everything would be catered for any set, there would be no need for the actor to bring any food, drink or entertainment, we will also be able to cater for a parent or guardian that the actor is more than welcome to bring if they want to, and unfortunately we cannot pay the auditionie.

We as a group are a very approachable and friendly group, but we are also a very professional and we take our work and filmmaking seriously
Location: Newport, United Kingdom
