Actors Needed for Web Series "The Dead and Us"

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

The Dead and Us is an apocalyptic web series set in the UK. The world is now in ruin with the dead roaming the streets, cities etc.
The survivors left in the world aren't all what they seem and the situations we find them in are likely to become intense, terrifying and even crazy!
They must face new challenges in order to survive.
We are currently close to wrapping our second season and will then be moving onto the third season in which opens a new but also continuous chapter in the story.

As the world around the survivors expands, new people will be met and will join up with the main group of survivors and some may even dislike them and become enemies.

This web series is currently featured on YouTube (at least for now) and has it's own dedicated channel for viewing the episodes.

The only thing we ask is that you would be required to look at using old clothing for characters or zombie roles.

We would prefer it if you used unbranded clothing and if you are willing to go the extra mile and be creative you are more than welcome to create your own character look and style so long as it suits story and the setting.
