Chrysalis Film Series Castings for Episode II

Portsmouth, UK. Apply from all UK.
Listed by View details

Chrysalis is an Episodic Short Film Series that will be filmed in and around Portsmouth, UK. I am currently casting for the second episode.

Inspired from the likes of the hit E4 series Skins, Chrysalis is a character-driven British teen drama, teeming with emotion and sentiment that follows the stories of various young people hailing from the South Coast of England, as they struggle with the realities of adolescence and young adult life, growing up in an outdated, backwards city. Their stories loosely follow current events and are based therefore before and after lock down.

Due to this being a time of great uncertainty, I am currently unable to confirm filming dates. This production consequently will have to be played by ear, but auditions and rehearsals will be organised as usual, and will all be based online via self-tape auditions, and video calls. Therefore I'm looking for actors who are flexible, and are able to be versatile and adapt to changing circumstances.

The locations will be based in or around Portsmouth, UK.

The roles are unpaid, but travel or accommodation expenses may be reimbursed upon request, and all actors will receive a copy of the episode, or episodes they feature in, which may be used in a showreel, etc.

Audition / Rehearsal / Production dates

All advertisers agree to abide by the UK National Minimum Wage Act and are responsible for defining the nature of their production and any payment requirements. Find out more.


Smart, nonchalant Timothy is a reserved, precocious 18 year-old with a keen, quiet interest for classic novels. Timmy feels his intelligence is a weakness. He’s learnt to hide it, and conceals his brightness by dumbing himself down and going along with the crowd to impress his friends. It's the end of lockdown now and Timmy, who finally is able to break free from acting ordinary, longs to find someone he can share his interests with. Yet it's difficult to resist falling back into old habits.

18 years of age, STEVE TROKE aka 'SPLIFFY STEVE' is an enthusiastic, high-spirited, hedonistic junkie with an extremely high sex drive and an unabating sense of loyalty to his friends- particularly Timmy. Steve is a sweet, charismatic character, but he's terribly naive. He's a true, dependable friend, who highly values loyalty and companionship, but believes he knows everyone's best interests, and his confidence within himself tends to exceed his knowledge. Steve is fun, lively and optimistic.
