Three Actors Required for a Short About an Athlete Dealing with Impotence

Three Actors Required for a Short About an Athlete Dealing with Impotence

London, UK
Listed by View details

We are looking for three actors to perform in the roles of a male athlete, his girlfriend and his coach in a short film which deals with toxic masculinity and impotence within the Black community.

For the roles, we need a male lead in the age range of 19-25; He should slim and athletic build, at least 6'1" (185 cms), of dark skin complexion. The female should be of the same age range, at least 5'7" (170 cms) and dark complexion. The third part of "Coach" should be in the age range of 50-75, height and build unimportant - the ability to project a stern and sympathetic nature on-screen is vital.

The project is called "Junior" and will be seen online on different platforms such as Vimeo and we are seeking viewing points which deal with the issues of toxic masculinity and impotence amongst charity organisations.

Please note, there will be a scene where "Jessica" and "Junior" are hugging in bed. “Junior” will be wearing a visible t-shirt and “Jessica” will be wearing nightwear.

The name of the production company is KSDigifilm, which is a part of the KSDIgimedia Group of companies and the organisation is one which makes documentaries and real-life films about social issues, so "Junior" is well placed.
