Two Male and Two Female Actors Required for Comedy Thriller Short Film

Nottingham, UK
Listed by View details

"The Morgue Party" is our new comedy/thriller short film about an underground society who host lavish parties with dead corpses.

The main protagonist is Larry who begins to the question the authority of Timothy, the 'host', who has become a minor celebrity amongst the community.

We intend to film sometime in June/July at a lavish village hall in Nottingham over the course of two days (approx. 9am - 4pm each day). It's a fantastically opulent venue and will really sell the exclusivity of the film's party.

I am an award-winning filmmaker and video producer who has been writing and directing short films for the past six years, ever since graduating from the University of Nottingham with a BA in Film and Television Studies. My last short film "Gone Fishing" was nominated for Best Comedy at the V.i.Z Film Fest 2021 and I recently won the Lotono Film Festival with a comedy I wrote and directed called "Forbidden Fruit".

Upon completion, the film will be doing the rounds at film festivals around the UK and Europe, so it's a fantastic opportunity to get your name out there!

Food will be provided on set and travel expenses can be reimbursed to you. We kindly request that you take a Covid test on the two mornings before filming, even if you have been vaccinated. It's an important request and will ensure the safety of everyone working on the project, which is of paramount importance.

An online rehearsal via WhatsApp video call may be arranged before filming, but more details on that will be released soon.

Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you!
