Actors required for self-shot segment in one of our two feature films, currently in production,
Spanning over two full length films creative project, our dark independent horror tale has been shot mainly in the UK with various cameos from independent horror actors / film makers from the UK and USA collaborating together.
Principal photography continues with just a handful of scenes remaining before full completion of both films, both titles are approximately 95% shot with post-production well underway. The final feature films will be sent to distributors upon completion, with the intent of a Blu-Ray / DVD / VOD release. However at this stage it is an unpaid, self funded, passion project.
Strange things start to happen to Alicia and her husband Jason after she receives a gift in the mail from her great-Aunt Gwen, is their house haunted or has the family been cursed, or is it something far darker?
Alicia Stone returns in this gore-drenched sequel. Having lost all hope, husband Jason calls on the help of Paranormal TV host Tyson to confront the demonic forces that have plagued the Stone household.
The second feature film requires a “faux television news” report containing many accounts of ‘possessed messengers’ from across the world, delivering ‘his’ message about a future uprising. Comprised of clips of bold and daring actors or models with the ability to self-shoot on a Camcorder or HD mobile phone to submit to our editing team for inclusion. Submissions must be from persons over 18 years of age, due to sensitive themes.
Successful submissions will require signing a release form for usage in the film while the role is unfortunately unpaid a credit will be given in the film’s main end credit roll, with the character name “possessed messenger”.
CHARACTER: Possessed messenger of the demon Lord Asmodeus, a deranged and insane person who has been taken over by the influence of the dark lord in order to deliver the announcement of his coming.
Ideally dirty, torn, shabby clothing, unkempt hair, dirty makeup (if possible),
gore scenarios are also fine if you feel like getting adventurous. Feel free to get as wild and creative as you feel comfortable with as the film is aimed at adults and already contains gore with paranormal elements.
Don’t be scared, or shy, to be as extreme as comfortably able, visual physical elements would be great to break up clips and make them unique! This film is on a collaborative basis and we are open to you incorporating any ideas you may have about your character, as long as you stay within the guidelines.
NB this footage will be presented within the TV news item in a “found footage” style, suggesting the footage has been filmed by a concerned family member and sent to the news service, so it will be ok to address the camera directly with any dialogue you improvise.
Addressing or attacking another person is also fine, along with any creative ideas you may have for a possessed messenger may be getting up to in the lead up to a demon / hell uprising - The submission does not have to be limited to one screen actor per video, but all participants will require completing a general release form for their contribution.
Submissions have no specific requirement in time length and can be 20 seconds to a few minutes. Footage will be edited to match / fit the requirement of the scene if used.
IMPORTANT: remember to film in landscape/horizontal and NOT portrait, otherwise the footage may not be used.
A hand signed release form for the footage will be required for usage in the film.
Unpaid – this is a collaboration opportunity - This job is unpaid - Personal creative project colaborating with actors / film makers.
Collaborations should create mutual benefit and are usually amateur, student or 'Time for Print' projects.
