Listed by View details

I am a third year Television Production student at University of Gloucestershire.

Currently, I am in pre-production for my next project: "Time is of the Essence" - a short drama. After a near death experience, Ellie acquires the ability to see how long someone has left to live, a harrowing thought for a girl who cares full-time for her chronically ill mother.

I am on the lookout for confident performers who can bring this emotional story about mother and daughter to life.

As this is a student film, unfortunately it is an unpaid opportunity so you must be happy to accept this as a voluntary commitment. You will receive a copy of the finished film which can be used in show reels. Food and travel logistics can be negotiated.

Shooting dates and times are to be confirmed but it will be between 9th and 22nd November 2020. Applicants should be flexible within these dates.
Shooting location is also to be confirmed but will definitely be Cheltenham/Gloucester.

Due to the current situation regarding Covid-19, it is our aim to cast from as few households as possible. Some physical contact is required between actors so you must be in good health and comfortable with this. Extra precautions and extensive risk assessments will take place to ensure the safety of all cast and crew.
