Actors for "Dream Land" Short Film

Kent, UK
Listed by View details

Looking to cast two actors who are up for a challenge and are local to Margate, Kent for a short film being shot on either 25th/26th August (weather dependant).

The Brief:
An elderly couple take a trip down to Margate for the day and are transported back to their youth. The younger versions of themselves go on rides in Dreamland and play on the carnival games and walk along the seafront and are transformed back into their older selves.

The Challenge:
Super 8 Competition: Straight 8 is the global one-super-8-cartridge-no-editing short film competition founded in london in 1999

Make a short film on one cartridge of super 8mm cine film with no editing, no re-takes, no grade, no post-production
the visuals for your film are completed in-camera, shooting in story order, editing only with each pull of the camera's trigger. Every shot you take becomes your film

The Project:
We are planning to shoot a short film on a super 8 camera in and around Margate. We have cast our two older actors and now we need to find two actors to play their younger selves. This will involve having a fantastic day in margate by going on rides in Dreamland, eating a stick of rock, playing in the arcades and generally being ‘young and in love’.

Due to the nature of the challenge we only get to do one take of every shot and we must shoot continuously. This means you will need to be a one take wonder every time and the final film will be ‘unedited’. We think the project will be really fun and quite a unique opportunity. We need actors who can improvise and aren’t afraid to have fun.

The fine print:
Due to the nature of the shoot we can only offer expenses for this project but we will also pay for food, travel (up to £20) and rides! - on the day.

Casting Requirements:

Male (18 – 25)
Average build, average Joe, someone who likes rides and is full of life

Female (18-25)
Average build, average Joe, someone who likes rides and is full of life

If you’re based near to Margate, available on both dates provisionally and fancy a challenge get in touch with your showreel to be considered for the role.

This is quite a unique opportunity to have some showreel footage shot on wonderful super 8 format
