Franklin is a Pseudo-documentary exploring the benefits of video communications platforms whilst painting a picture for the potential of its misuse. I want to show how people can adapt to the struggles they face, particularly with the help of technology as well as blend fiction with non-fiction.
The film will consist of video chat interviews with real people talking about how the increased use of online communications has benefitted them during the pandemic. These interviews will then be used to create a fictional narrative that a communications company is taking advantage of its users by harvesting their data.
I am looking for actors to portray the characters in the fictional narrative. I am developing scripts that take elements from real interviews, and intend to further develop ideas with actors i am carrying out interviews with.
Can be carried out over internet calls (Preferably Zoom, whatsapp etc also possible) If located close to the Brighton area and lockdown restrictions are lifted, there may be an oppurtunity to film on set at Brighton Screen and Film School.
Will be playing a character employed by a fictional video communications company that is responsible for harvesting users data and providing insecure communications software. Script is under development based on other aspects of the film, and open to experimentation/improvisation with actors to further develop realism for the interviews.
Anyone, aged 18 to 35
