Film Shoot in October/November

We have acquired a small budget to produce a Blackpool based Feature Film.

The budget for the film is very small and we are trying our hardest to put as much as possible 'on the screen'. With this in mind some roles will be paid others will have expenses paid but everyone involved will be well fed, watered and pampered.

It is the redemption tale of a low level drug dealer trying to put right the mistakes that have destroyed his family and created his most powerful foes. When things start spiralling out of control he will have to take on the Heroin empire he is trapped in and the people who control it to protect the ones he loves.

It is a graphically violent film with a fair bit of drug reference. Most of the character are bad people doing bad things. Would suit people looking to get involved in something dark and gritty.

The script is now being written and we are keen to find our talent during the writing process so we can write around them.

Looking for a range of talent (Northern accent unless stated otherwise)
The Lead: (age 22-28)
A few angry young males (age 20-30)
A few older well established henchmen. (age 35-50)
A troubled ex girlfriend with a growing drug habit. (age 19-23)
A bitter mother - (Scottish Accent) (50+)
Dad (50+)

At this stage we're just looking to see CVs and chat to interested talent. We aim to shoot in October. Happy to answer questions.
