Actors needed for roles in short film "The Visitation" - Reading

Casting complete. Applications are now closed.

We're looking to shoot this short film at some time over a couple of days, in the next couple of months. The film is about an agoraphobic old man who has trouble facing up to his past, and has a history of mental illness. He is visited by two "social workers" who turn out to not quite be what they seem. This would be an unpaid project, but a good chance to get a good show reel piece, and work with some friendly talented people.

All minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
