Growing Old Gracefully, a new British comedy drama beginning Principal Photography in Manchester May 27 for 8 days until early June is looking for crew to join our small but focussed production team.

[The Movie]
Growing Old Gracefully is a new British feature film starting Principal Photography in Manchester, England, May 2019.  
 
Based on a true story, partly autobiographical, and set in the early 1960s in Manchester, the story centres on a rather unforgettable trip for 54 year old, undiscovered singer songwriter Paul, who ventures into the audience at Bernard Manning’s club to experience an evening’s entertainment of comedy and music.  But what starts off as a night of controversial comedy from Manning, gradually unfolds into a series of bizarre, surreal and unexplainable events involving politically incorrect conduct, chaos, confusion, farce, absurdist incidents and unexpectedly jaw-dropping surprises.
 
Many puzzling questions inescapably arise, such as ; why are the Beatles, Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison and Laurel & Hardy still unknown and without any success in showbusiness, and why are they all looking for their first big break on the same dingy evening at Bernard Manning’s modest little club in the wrong, deprived part of urban Manchester?  Why are they all 54 years old?  And why do they all have an unsettling physical resemblance to Paul?  Why is Bernard so verbally brutal and totally ruthless in his confrontations with all these apparently big name, familiar faces?
 
Is Paul about to get his own big break, taking over on stage when an unknown and disillusioned 54 year old Elvis Presley’s precarious pelvis forces him to prematurely halt his performance in agony and leave the building?  Is Paul about to personally rewrite the shape and history of culture and pop music legend?
 
Growing Old Gracefully is a comedy drama with a startling difference where weird things are constantly happening and bringing the events of history, the past and the future, especially for some of the biggest names in showbusiness, into shocking uncertainty.

The film combines elements of Back To The Future and Wierd Al Yankovic with moments of moving drama interweaving surreal, slapstick and physical comedy.

Credits for some of the lead actors already cast include The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and Harry Potter And The Cursed Child.

The movie is being shot in both black and white and colour on 4K digital cine cameras. It will be entered for International Film Festivals with a view to acquiring worldwide distribution. The movie features several songs, music and special effects and due to the small independent budget, the crew will be paid travel expenses, lunch and refreshments, a full industry daily rate deferred until the movie secures distribution, and then additional bonuses from the movie’s future earnings.

The crew positions we’re recruiting are 1st AD, 2nd AD, Continuity/Clapper Loader, Sound Recordist, Gaffer Grip, Costume & Props Supervisor, Hair & Make Up Supervisor, Hair & Make Up Assistant. Recently trained film school students will also be considered for all roles.

Please send a resume with your application. Many thanks for your curiosity.
