Beautiful actress/strong dancer to play the lead in a short film

Actress/dancer required for short film - London

Casting complete. Applications are now closed.

The Shoes follows a day in the life of Carla. A young aspiring dancer living on a council estate in South London.

With an alcoholic mother and no father Carla is forced to make ends meet on her own. Relying on the good will of the grounds man of the school, Carla is sometimes able to spend a few hours on the weekend escaping to a world where nothing matters except the sound of the music in her ears and feel of the studio floor under her feet. Six months ago Carla signed up to a high end escorting agency, not entirely aware what it was she was getting herself in for. Carla’s naivety is exploited and her innocence is destroyed as night after night she is left in the hands of yet another well paying customer.

The film will contain no dialogue but will be very emotionally driven so the female playing the role of Carla needs to be just as strong an actress as she is a dancer.

Although it's implied that Carla is a prostitute no nudity or sexual scenes will be required. The final scene will see a man take Carla into a bedroom, sit on the bed and the man will close the bedroom door, leaving it open for the audience to interpret how they please.

It will be beautifully shot and quite stylised providing great showreel footage.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
