Two Actors to Play a Married Couple Fighting Immigration in a Music Video
The message of the music video is to highlight the issue of immigration in the UK and also to challenge racial stereotypes.
This music video is being produced for South Wales Indie Rock band Falling Under for their single “Pipedream”. The band have had multiple songs played on numerous occasions on BBC Radio Wales Introducing, as well as playing on The National Film and Television School’s live TV channel. The music video for their most recent single “Tiger Lily” premiered at the 2018 Killers concert at The Liberty Stadium in Swansea in front of 35,000 people.
We are multiple award winning filmmakers who have been working in the industry for the past few years since graduating from the prestigious Newport Film School. We always aim to produce films with ambitious subject matter including multiple short films that have won awards around the globe. Some of our shorts have also gathered more than 1 million views on YouTube.
We are planning to shoot solely in Wales, mainly in Newport, Cardiff but also West Wales. The shooting dates are 14th, 15th and 16th of August. Travel, accommodation and food expenses will be covered but unfortunately as it is a micro budget music video, we won’t be able to pay a fee. But this is a fantastic opportunity to strengthen your portfolio, and also we will be entering it into numerous film festivals and the My Rode Reel film competition which we were finalists in last year.
Audition / Rehearsal / Production datesDue to dates changing for availability of locations, we are now shooting on 28th to 30th August

Claudia is an Italian woman in her mid twenties who is married to her husband Ash who she met at Cardiff University. She came to the UK from Italy in order to study art but since graduating has struggled to find work in her desired subject, which has led to her to work odd jobs part time in bars. Claudia is kind, caring, but sometimes overly optimistic where she often has pipedreams of quickly becoming a highly successful painter which are unrealistic.
