Actors Required for Student Surreal Sci-Fi Art Film

Cambridge, UK. Apply from all UK.
Listed by View details

I'm a Film student looking for actors for my final year project, "THE DARK AGE - a story in four parts", a surreal abstract art film with science fiction & cosmic horror elements.

There are at least six parts available. I'll be looking for passionate, professional actors to really sink their teeth into these roles.

Covid makes things a little precarious, but we're hoping to film in April when most people are vaccinated and lockdown is (hopefully) over. I've received covid training as part of my Film course and I'm risk assessing the shoots to be as safe as possible. If lockdown continues and filming becomes impossible, the script is abstract and flexible enough to allow something to be done with your performances (e.g. recorded narration) so you don't feel you learned your lines in vain.

The finished film will be submitted to film festivals, published on Vimeo & YouTube, and shared with my moderate online following (3200 followers on Facebook, 2000 on Twitter as of the time of writing). In addition to the publicity, it will be a good opportunity to collect showreel material, you'll be helping me graduate, and I'll consider you for future projects (I prefer working with actors I know).

Pay is TBD. Cost of transport and food will be provided; for this reason actors who live in the Cambridgeshire area are preferred.

Looking forward to working with you! Message me for all enquiries.

SPACE VICAR

The eyepatch-wearing, grizzly priest of a religion of the far future. This role consists of delivering a sermon as a kind of dramatic monologue. This is the most flexible with regards to covid, as if it comes to it you could record the monologue at home. Actors with experience in voice acting and a good microphone will therefore be prioritised.

Anyone, aged 50 and over

Applications closed 1 April 2021.

THE INITIATE

The Initiate takes part in a symbolic ritual. Experience in choreography or modelling would therefore be preferential but is not at all required. The protagonist of Part III.

Female, aged 18 to 30
