Casting for new political thriller short film in London

Synopsis: Election Day is a modern day horror film inspired by the new wave of thrilling yet comedic horrors led by the likes of Jordan Peele. The film follows the journey of The Cambells, a middle class black family who have a comfortable life but still pursue to give back to their community.

It’s the final day of the 2024 election which could potentially be a new start of a New World Order... Good or bad ? Depends who wins the election. The Cambells unfortunately knock on the wrong door whilst helping candidate Isaac Musa with his electoral campaign and are kidnaped... Will they make it out in time to vote for the future of mankind ?

To be clear, this is an independent short final for a final year production trying to make the most of of this during current conditions. It will be seen on my university platform, YouTube (non monetized) and personal socials.
