Hello everyone, we are a small production company doing an ambitious, fantasy style music video/short film featuring Clive Russell (Game Of Thrones, Ripper Street, Thor 2) as Death. As his character is only “unmasked” towards the end of the video, we are looking for a body double for the four days of shooting that we don’t need Clive himself.
While your face wouldn’t be shown, that doesn’t mean you don’t have to be able to act. How you hold yourself, your head movements etc. absolutely are important and we won’t accept anyone with zero acting experience. You’ll also have to confidently interact with the lead actress.
Please only apply if you are:
1. Caucasian (Clive is Caucasian); At least 6ft2 (Clive is 6ft6); At least 60 years old (Clive is 75); Broad shouldered but with an otherwise slim build.
2. Based traveling distance from Huddersfield, West Yorkshire
3. Can do the following September dates, times and locations*: Saturday 11th 6am- 11am in Filey (you have the option of staying over with us nearby the night before for free); Sunday 6am- 11am in Huddersfield; Friday 17th 6am- 11am in Bingley (you can meet us at 5am in Huddersfield and get a lift if you prefer); Saturday 18th 12- 6pm. A lot of early starts and no margin for lateness as we’re shooting over sunrise (golden hour).
4. Can attend one photoshoot.
If you want to come on Sunday 19th to get a picture with Clive for your portfolio you’re welcome to do so.
*If there is just one date that you cannot do please get in touch anyway in case we end up having to split the role between two actors.
Naturally we do not expect anyone to want to do this kind of shoot for expenses.
We’ll be filming on beaches, at waterfalls, in a meadow at sunrise…it’ll be a lot of fun but not for the faint hearted. But we are a very small production company paying for this ourselves so please be aware that we must have costs at the forefront of my minds when casting so it’s unlikely we’ll be able to afford professional daily rates.
To sweeten the deal for the right person we can offer portfolio shots or the filming of a basic showreel piece.
This role is ideal for someone who loves to act, is getting into acting and/or needs to build up their list of professional credits.
Last but not least, we are small but we are prolific and we always go to the actors we have worked with before rather than put out casting calls. If we get on great and you’re a pleasure to work with you’re pretty much guaranteed other roles with us in the future as we prefer to work with the same actors over and over again.
Looking forward to hearing from those who match all the above.
Audition / Rehearsal / Production datesSeptember 11th, 12th, 17th and 18th 2021. All except Saturday 18th are VERY early starts.
Payment TBC - It will vary on experience.
Expenses paid - Travel only, snacks will be served
