Actors Required For Web Comedy Sketch about a Book Club

Actors Required For Web Comedy Sketch about a Book Club

Kingston upon Thames, UK
Listed by View details

The Faction Of Farce is a Surrey based Youtube show with sketches of a random, obscure, and bizarre nature. The sketches are written and directed by Ross K. Foad, best known for his work on popular Sherlock Holmes web drama comedy "No Place Like Holmes".

This latest sketch is about a book club in which the members all like to portray (what they think) is a high level of intellect, but in reality couldn't look more idiotic.

Remember your English teacher insisting the passage on Page 45 represented the characters misspent youth in failing to master origami? You can be sure they really didn't, and maybe the sentance just sounded good, but that wouldn't have made them seem as intelligent.

Ideally suited for those local, starting out and wanting some experience, an IMDb credit, showreel footage, stills and good exposure.
I always give detailed recommendations and will also add +favourite you meaning your profile will be more attractive to other future prospective casting directors.

Looking to shoot either Saturday 5th December or Sunday 6th December. From Midday-to Early afternoon.
Likely to take around no more than 2 hours to shoot.

Please state whether you are able to do either/or of the days.
