Multiple Actors Needed for Challenging and Unique Thriller - Student Film

Stoke-on-Trent, UK. Apply from all UK.
Listed by View details

"DESOLATION" is a unique and challenging thriller which is set in a small place. ELIZABETH is hiding in a small cabinet as a mass shooter is killing and maiming her colleagues. Although it is a thriller, it is one that I made sure that has a deeper meaning.

Please note that the film will be set 90% inside a office cabinet, something I am looking to be fabricated for the film, but will ensure the actor will be 100% inside the cabinet will be comfortable with regular breaks etc. It also does have theme of abuse and violence.

I am currently a film student and have directed several shorts, the script I have gotten glowing remarks from lecturers and industry professionals and if we pull this off, it would be a great and exciting opportunity for everyone involved as I aim to send it off to festivals, and my last film "The Bridge", a sci-fi drama got into two film festivals, and you can watch it upon application.
