Listed by View details

We are All Day Breakfast Pictures and we are working on our upcoming Drama/Body Horror 10 minute short "MiraclePill". The story follows Harper, a 20-something who is trying to cope with the death of her late mother. One day, after looking through some of her mother's old boxes she finds VHS tapes advertising a MiraclePill that allows you to lose weight at a faster rate than normal. This is Juxtaposed through Harper's father Mike, a sluggish character who copes with the death of his wife through overindulging in unhealthy food, mindless TV shows, and shopping channels. As the film unfolds, we learn more about Harper and Mike's unstable relationship, and how the death of the mother has drawn a barrier between them at a time where they need each other the most.

We are searching for 2 lead roles to embody Harper and Mike, as well as 4 supporting roles that include speaking parts.

The secondary roles include:

1. Harper's Mother
2. American Aerobics Instructor
3. A Male shopping channel presenter
4. A Male guest on the shopping channel

This film is mainly a Drama, with Body Horror consequences in the end. There will be some graphic content towards the climax of the film. If you are applying for a lead role you must be willing to work with SFX such as Fake Blood, Makeup and Prosthetics.

We are 2nd-year student filmmakers at Middlesex University London, regarded by some as one of the best film schools globally. We began building our production company "All Day Breakfast Pictures LTD" in late 2017 and we have amassed several acclaimed music videos, adaptations, and our short film "Doing The Job You Love (2019)". For this short, we are not looking to make a profit as the budget will be entirely funded through our team's personal savings and crowdfunding. However, we will be submitting the film into various film festivals globally for the publicity and building our brand.
