New British feature film Growing Old Gracefully, a comedy drama musical, scheduled for Principal Photography in Manchester October 2019 is looking for:

A man with chubby, fat hands.

(White Caucasian, pale skin or mixed race) PLEASE SEND SOME PHOTOS OF YOUR HANDS SO WE CAN SEE THE FINGERS AND FINGERNAILS. AND ONE PHOTO OF YOU FROM WAIST TO HEAD.

There is also the opportunity for the man who we cast to appear as one of the featured extras who will be seen in a close up as a member of the audience shouting at Elvis. No acting experience is necessary so anyone suitable physically is welcomed to apply. The hands are to be used as a Double for the main character, an overweight stand up comedian.

[The Movie]
Based on a true story, partly autobiographical, and set in the early 1960s in Manchester, the story centres on a rather unforgettable trip for 54 year old, undiscovered singer songwriter Paul, who ventures into the audience at the cabaret club of rising new comedy star Rudy Chalmer to experience an evening’s entertainment of comedy and music.

But what starts off as a night of controversial comedy from Chalmer, gradually unfolds into a series of bizarre, surreal and unexplainable events involving politically incorrect conduct, chaos, confusion, farce, absurdist incidents and unexpectedly jaw-dropping surprises. Many puzzling questions inescapably arise, such as ; why are the Beatles, Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison and Laurel & Hardy still unknown and without any success in showbusiness, and why are they all looking for their first big break on the same dingy evening at Rudy Chalmer's modest little Comedy Shack in the wrong, deprived part of urban Manchester? 

Why are they all 54 years old? And why do they all have an unsettling physical resemblance to Paul? Why is Rudy so verbally brutal and totally ruthless in his confrontations with all these apparently big name, familiar faces?

Is Paul about to get his own big break, taking over on stage when an unknown and disillusioned 54 year old Elvis Presley’s precarious pelvis forces him to prematurely halt his performance in agony and leave the building? 

Growing Old Gracefully is a comedy drama musical with a startling difference where weird things are constantly happening and bringing the events of history, the past and the future, especially for some of the biggest names in showbusiness, into shocking uncertainty. 

The film combines elements of Back To The Future, The Wizard of Oz and Wierd Al Yankovic with moments of moving drama interweaving surreal, slapstick and physical comedy. The movie is being shot on 5K digital cine cameras. It will be entered for International Film Festivals with a view to acquiring worldwide distribution and features several songs (original and classic hits covers) a music score and special effects.

Principal Photography is scheduled at two weeks from October 14, 2019 with a DOP and 2nd camera operator. The movie will be entered for International Film Festivals with a view to acquiring worldwide distribution & features several songs, both original and classic hits covers, a music score and special effects.

Due to the Very Low Budget status as an independent British feature film, there will be a contract that will outline the usual day rate, plus sizeable additional bonuses from the movie’s Gross earnings. As soon as we sell the movie and are paid by a Distributor, cast and crew will then be paid immediately from that Gross advance. And to begin with, there will be paid travel expenses or transport provided & catering.

Accountants will distribute future payments to cast/crew who will be able to inspect the accounts.
