Several Roles in Short, Epic, Sci-Fi Film

London, UK
Listed by View details

We are in pre-production of a short film that is intended to have an epic scope and high production value. The story takes part in two moments - a conversation between our main actor and a family member and flashbacks to a starship, in which our protagonist recently suffered a great loss.

This project is intended to utilise high production values and is being made by an experienced, if small, team. We intend to produce a short that will be entered, and do very well, in various competitions and festivals in as many locations as possible.

Due to the nature of our plans - there will be several days shooting based in the Norfolk area; where we will have a location and a built set. We will provide travel/expenses and accommodation and catering will be provided for the duration, should this be desired.

We intend to hold Auditions in the Greenwich area of London within the next two weeks - and you should be happy to attend these.
The shoot dates have yet to be firmly locked but will be mid-end March and we will confirm these dates shortly. The shoot is likely to run from Thursday - Sunday (though only the main cast member will be required for all four of these days).

In the interest of openness; we ARE second year film production students. Our quality of work and work ethics are high, many of us have worked and studied with industry professionals as well as currently wrapping on an independent feature film. We have every intention of producing a film that you will be proud to put on your showreel and your name to.

If you have any queries as to the nature of the project please feel free to ask in your application or when attending the audition.
