Multiple Cast Required for Indie Film

London, UK
Listed by View details

Casting "I Bring Joy," a dark London thriller. Log-line: A disaffected young woman who is struggling to transition from a career in dancing to acting, as well as heal from former traumas, discovers a penchant for killing.
Note: After completing this thriller script a while back and with 2021 funding being harder than ever - I've decided to push ahead anyway and get it made one way or another.
The script itself has been well received, it's in consideration at later stages of several festivals.
I'm looking for reasonably local cast who have had a similarly frustrating 2020 and are keen to flex their acting muscles again with or without a serious budget. Collaborators who, like me, just want to make a film.
The film is currently without a budget and is only able to move forward because the Director often acts as his own DoP on commercial work, owns suitable equipment and has access to one of the key locations. We're not looking beyond festivals at this point but if there is an opportunity to monetise the film down the line then we would absolutely look to compensate the cast accordingly.
This would be a second feature for the writer/director, 'By Light Of Desert Night' was released by Gravitas Ventures in 2020.
