Three Actors Required for Lead Roles in Short Film

Three Actors Required for Lead Roles in Short Film

Portsmouth, UK
Listed by View details

Three lead actors required for our 15-20min short film. The film is mental health-themed, tackling the subject of suicide and depression in young males.

The film title is currently disclosed until we officially announce it, but we do have a complete treatment we can provide you to get a feel and tone of the film. The script is in development. We don't have any specific vision for the characters and we're open-minded. But the lead roles are as follows:

Lead One: Tommy Burton, aged 18-21. Suffering from mental illnesses and grief. Contemplated suicide.

Lead Two: Lucy Burton, aged 30-40. Mother to Tommy.

Lead Three: Will Burton, also aged 30-40. Father to Tommy, but is deceased. However, his character becomes the key role in the film in the second half.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, we cannot give you precise filming dates yet. We're closely assessing the situation. Filming is set to take place in Portsmouth/Southsea, so ideally be as local possible as filming will not only be in the day, but we're planning for a few night shoots.

I understand all of that is brief information for now, but I am happy to link you the treatment and first three pages to the script to get a better grasp.

We make these films on a budget of £0.00, so the roles will be unpaid. However, we will provide food and drink where necessary. We will ask for a portfolio, so please keep that in mind, as this is our first major production. Any further questions, let me know!
