Lucas & Jo
A 70-year-old widow attends a bereavement retreat, where she struggles to cope with the guilt surrounding her growing feelings for the groundsman.

This is a 20 minute short film based in a cottage in the UK countryside, filming for around 5 days in spring 2022. Location is not yet confirmed so could be anywhere in England; transport can be provided.

Please note this is an unpaid job as I am a student, however I will be entering the film into multiple festivals & I'm happy for it to be used in show reels. My previous films have gotten multiple selections at festivals and I hope this one will be the same!

If you are interested in any of these roles, please message on StarNow or email will be provided upon application. We are in very early stages of pre-production so replies may be slow but I will get back to everyone as soon as I can!

Please message if you have any questions! Looking forward to hopefully working with you.
