This job is unpaid
Thank you very much for your interest.
I would just like to inform you that I am a first time filmmaker and that the production, depending on your experience, could be much more amateur than you might be used to. If however, you are still happy to be involved then I will of course consider you for the role.
Also, just to reiterate that at the moment the filming is set for August in Lancaster for five days.
Thank you again,

Helene - the mother of the birthday girl
Helene is cultured and outspoken and loves her daughter though she doesn't often get the chance to see her. She used to be a cabaret singer in Berlin. She still travels extensively and looks like she has too. She still has a hunger to learn.
Females, aged 35 to 50
Tom/Thelma - the best friend
Tom/Thelma is a photographer with a quick wit, a little bit of a hard edge if necessary but is a good friend to those that count. Opinionated with an activist's spirit.
Anyone, aged 18 to 25
Mildred - an old family friend
Mildred is the grandmother of one of the children present at the party. She sometimes puts up a stern front but clearly has a good heart; maternal. She's stubborn though and can hold a grudge.
Females, aged 55 and over
Leslie - a family friend and mother
Leslie is the mother of one of the children at the party. She's loud, honest to a fault, extroverted, very definitely a gossip. She has a sense of humour about most situations. She loves her daughter.
Females, aged 30 to 45
Greta - a party guest; granddaughter of Mildred
Greta is the granddaughter of Mildred. She's a little nervous to be at the party. She has a large imagination, she's an introvert but has a curiosity about the new faces at the party. She's intelligent for her age, sensible and mature about most things. She has a pet tortoise that she talks to and uses as security in uncomfortable situations.
Females, aged 10 to 16
April - a party guest; daughter of Leslie
April is the daughter of Leslie and as a result is definitely the extrovert to Greta's more reserved nature. She is strong-willed and has a leaning towards a leadership type of personality. She's also got an interest in Greta as a possible friend.
Females, aged 10 to 16
Lucas is a neighbourhood/school friend. He's a guest at the party as well as a musician there to perform a song for the birthday girl. He's essentially a good person but is at an age where he's perhaps a little too headstrong and can be a little irritating. He's handsome and ambitious when it comes to his music. He'll clearly grow up to be a gentleman.
Males, aged 15 to 18
