I previously opened a casting call for a short film, but have made a few changes to the scenes/scripts. We are looking to produce a successful full length film for mental health awareness. The film itself will be based around my life, as detailed in the blogs found at lifeofbran.com, from being bullied at childhood through to opening two companies. The potential of this film is massive, it will be the first of it's kind, and will have a major positive impact. It will be a fairly fast paced, action film. As this will be for mental health awareness, all roles will be on a commercial release basis, so it will be unpaid, but you'll receive a % of earnings when the film starts earning after launch. It's a huge project, so you'll need to be dedicated and capable. There are plenty of roles to choose from, so don't be scared to apply as there's likely to be something for you.
Chaperones will obviously be allowed when filming due to the age requirements and scenes.
Please note: The blogs contain material which may be distressing to some readers.


All minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
