Two Male Actors Required for Lead Roles in Short Queer Drama

Newcastle upon Tyne, UK. Apply from all UK.
Listed by View details

LOGLINE: A one-night stand between two men takes an emotional turn.

NOTHING SPECIAL is a romantic drama interrogating the (lack of) happy endings in queer films.

We are casting the two lead roles, both requiring a male actor in their mid- to late-20s or very early 30s.

Especially looking for non-white actors, with a preference for queer actors.

Auditions will be held virtually / via self-tape.

We are currently planning to shoot for 4 days in mid/late-March, in Newcastle, with a day’s rehearsal, COVID permitting.

Applications encouraged from across the UK; accommodation in Newcastle during the shoot will be provided by the production.

The script contains an intimate sex scene, but full frontal nudity isn’t required.

This is an independent short film project by an established queer filmmaker whose debut feature met with success on the festival circuit and was theatrically released in a number of countries. We hope NOTHING SPECIAL will enjoy a similarly successfully run on the festival circuit.

Audition / Rehearsal / Production dates

Male lead 1

A filmmaker visiting Newcastle from London for a screening of his new film. Thoughtful, but with a carefree exterior and sense of play that hides an unexamined dissatisfaction within. He thrives on new sexual encounters, their brief, expedited intimacy, yet doesn’t like letting people in.

Male, aged 26 to 34

  • Height: 170 cm / 5ft 7in - Any
  • Acting experience: Previous unpaid speaking roles, Previous paid speaking roles

Nudity may be required

Applications closed 13 February 2021.

Male lead 2

A well-put together young professional, working in the arts, living in Newcastle. Not the loudest person in the room. Tries to put his best foot forward, but is beginning to grow weary of the gay scene with its apps and disappointments; looking for genuine connections, something more.

Male, aged 26 to 34

  • Height: 170 cm / 5ft 7in - Any
  • Acting experience: Previous unpaid speaking roles, Previous paid speaking roles

Nudity may be required
