Hi actors/actresses,

We hope you are keeping well and would appreciate you reading the short synopsis of our final film project at University.

'Time is Money' is a sci-fi drama and revolves around the main protagonist Isaac, a hacker/inventor who has created a supercomputer than can communicate through time to other computers.

Isaac comes up with a scheme from the present (2020's) to communicate back in time to his younger self and provide winning lottery numbers no one has claimed on. Isaac requires his childhood best friend Rico. Isaac has a diary that documents where he is at all times throughout the years, allowing him to understand in the future where he was specifically in the past.

Everything seems to be going to plan, however Rico's mother died in a car crash when he was younger and he starts to get to ideas behind Isaacs back...

The short film's narrative is embedded with lots of twist's and turns, which I try and incorporate into most of my stories.

I am in my final year at University and this is my biggest project to date and most important one. I have been studying Directing and Screenwriting intensely for many years and I am keen to put these skills to practice working with great actors.

We will be using expensive, Netflix approved, film-making equipment issued by the University, allowing us to provide a greater experience for actors.

Once the film is complete, we will also be submitting to various film festivals around the United Kingdom which will hopefully get you as actors, along with us as film-makers further recognition.

Please see more for further information regarding requirements and specific roles needed.

We look forward to creating this project and hearing from you.

Stephen O'Reilly and Team.
