I am currently looking an Actor or Actress and a small film Crew for a short comedy film. I am currently studying at Confetti Institute for Creative Technologies and as part of my course I need to produce a short film between 3-5 minuets.
Filming will take place between the 17/02/14 and the 28/02/13 over 1 day (to be decided). There may be the need for a short followup for pick ups, however as the film is short and I have planned it out in detail, it shouldn't take too long to film.
The location is to be decided but will almost certainly be close to Nottingham city center, so easy to get to and from.
The Actor or Actress does not need to have experience but needs to be able to follow direction. The main requirement is that you must look between the age of 18 - 25 and preferably be able to pull off 'Geek Chic' !!! This is a mainly silent part, so the ability to express emotion through the eyes, face and body language is essential.
The Camera Operator needs to be competent with PD170 and Sony Z1, however, if you wish to provide your own camera (DSLR etc) that's fine, I would just need to know in advance to provide the cards.
Preferably you need to be willing to explore unusual angles and framing, and whilst I have a comprehensive story board and shot list I am open to any and all ideas. Films are after all collaborative, and would welcome some one with a unique perspective and fresh ideas. As well as Cam Op on the credits you would also be listed as joint cinematographer.
The sound Operator should ideally be familiar with the R26 Roland recorders. Sound is not my strong point so someone who is passionate about getting the right sound is paramount. Most of the sound will be done in studio in post production but the sound on the day will provide the right background.
If you are interested we would need to meet in person (Pub, beers are on me ;p) be enthusiastic and let you talent shine. Talent, originality and enthusiasm are the most important traits I look for in potential cast and crew.
So now a little more about the film.........
It is a comedic short with fantasy based elements. I will share the plot and script when you successfully get the job. It is based in 1 location. I am currently doing a kick starter to get some props and set dressing. Unfortunately I can only pay you in thanks, and of course, any help you may require with you own projects. Also You will all be given a copy of the film for your show reels.
And again, the beers are on me once we finish.
All minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
