Actors needed for Dark Comedy

Casting complete. Applications are now closed.

This film is a dark comedy centred around a strange addictions clinic. The characters suffer from 'strange' addictions including cellotape, breaking things in order to fix them and dressing as a clown. It is a short film and will only have a running time of approximately 10 minutes. We are looking for actors to play the characters suffering from the addictions and also a hostess that will be conducting the meeting. Filming will take place in and around Liverpool and we are hoping to start shooting in January. This is a university production so all actors will be asked to work on a voluntary basis and unfortunately we are unable to use Equity actors.
