Two Actors Required for Romantic Drama Short Film, An Afternoon

United Kingdom
Listed by View details

It's a quiet afternoon. Overhead grey clouds sit motionless spread across an open sky. Down an empty road a young man and a young woman walk side by side along the pavement. They come to a little house at the end of a grove.

They enter, not sharing a word. She beckons him in, but he's hesitant. With a pause he follows her, and they move into the house. What follows is a moving portrait of shy, faltering desire, revealing fleeting, restrained emotion between two people that do not know each other, and do not at all want to.


An Afternoon is a five-minute short that focuses on subtle performance and controlled atmosphere to create an emotive experience. With only one word uttered by each performer in the entire piece, the viewer is invited to observe closely the intimate details of the situation. The film is intended to be overtly ambiguous; the relation between the two characters is suggested, how ever it will ultimately be up to the viewer to decide.

The film itself will be shot on Super 8 with a Kodak Black and White film stock, giving the images the distinct quality that only celluloid can provide. The extra prominence of grain and light artefacts that are unique to the medium will bring the film to life in a visceral way.


There will be rehearsal dates TBC, however the shooting itself is planned to be done in a location in Barnsley over a weekend in April, dates TBC closer to the time.
