We are working on a student project, stylised like a documentary, that focuses on mundane human activity. We are looking for background actors who will be going about a daily task that suits you best from the list below:

- Reading
- Talking on the phone
- Watching television
- Woodwork (in a shed)
- Practicing a musical instrument
- Cooking a meal
- Ironing clothes

Shooting would take anywhere between 15-45 minutes, depending on the activity in question, plus 10-15 minutes conversation and set-up of the static camera shot pointing through an unobscured window with a large view of an interior room.

If you are interested then please message with which of the tasks works best for you, and if you have any questions about us or the project then please get in contact.
