We are filming the pilot for a webseries titled 'Flirting at Gunpoint' and are currently casting the two lead actors. You can see a description of the characters at the end of this ad.

*Payment*
The fee is £100 per day of filming (likely 2 days) and £100 for pre-production (rehearsals). Breakfast and lunch will be included on filming days but travel expenses are not included.

*Dates*
Filming dates are not yet confirmed. It will be a weekend (consecutive Saturday and Sunday). Once the Covid lockdown rules loosen, we will find a weekend that works for everyone involved.

*Location*
Shoot location is in London N1, this is 5 mins walk from Old Street tube station (Northern line). For the rehearsals, we can find a location that is convenient for all three of us, but you will at least be expected to get to central london (on your own expense).

*Pre-production*
You will be expected to attend some video and in-person rehearsals in central London (Covid-allowing). These will be evenings or weekends, whichever works for both of you.

*Script*
I was unable to attach it to the listing. Once you apply, you should be able to see the 'associated website of the listing'. That is a wetransfer link to the script. If that does not work please message me.

*Selection process*
1. Please apply with your showreel. You can also skip to step 3 and audition to increase your chances.
2. Top candidates will be shortlisted.
3. Shortlisted candidates will be asked for an audition or self-tape. You can choose any section of the script to act out. Your audition should be between 30 and 60 seconds. You can find the script attached (If you can’t access the script, please message me). You can send multiple auditions, experimenting with different personalities, if you want. This can be shot on your phone.
4. Top candidates will be asked to do an extended audition, with some personalised guidance. This will pay £20 for anyone who is not selected.
5. Selected candidates are given the part. Rehearsals begin.

*Release plan*
The pilot will be uploaded to YouTube. From the day of release you are free to share this with friends and use sections of it for your showreel. There will be an IMDb page and credit.

*Character details*
Starnow limits how much text you can write in the individual character boxes at the end of the ad, so I have written below the sections that apply to both Jack and Maya.

*Relevant for Jack and Maya*
Voice:
You don’t need to have any specific accent. But you MUST be able to enunciate clearly so that the audience has no issues making out what you are saying.

Acting:
There is a lot of flexibility when it comes to your mannerisms. There is a lot of scope to add personality traits and details that are not in the script.

Intimacy note:
There is one scene where Maya falls backwards and into the arms of Jack. He catches Maya by holding her up by the bum (they are both fully clothed). Please let me know if you are not comfortable with this.

Maya

Looks: 20-35 yrs old. She is an assassin; she must be somewhat athletic or at least slim. Any ethnicity works. Acting: Katie is confident and serious. It is possible to make her laugh, but she will never let her guard down, the job comes first. She is in control of her actions and it is difficult to convince her to do something that is not in her best interest. Overall, you need to be an interesting character that always has something going on in her head. See the main ad for some more info.

Female, aged 20 to 35

Applications closed 31 October 2020.

Jack

Looks: 20-35 yrs old. She is an assassin; she must be somewhat athletic or at least slim. Any ethnicity works. Acting: Jack is very flirty and confident. He is not a serious guy and tries to crack a joke even when faced with death or other serious situations. Jack is the main comic relief of the show, you must be really very funny. Overall, you need to be an entertaining character that brings lots of energy. See the main ad for some more info.
