I am a film studies student looking to produce my first short film for my coursework.

The basic plot: two girls meet at a train station and one of the girls (Girl 1) approaches the other, sitting on a bench, she tries to spark conversation but the other girl (2) is deaf. From this meeting they become closer and eventually a romantic relationship is formed. Through this we learn to 'enjoy the silence', there will be no or at very most a few scenes of dialogue throughout the film. At the end of the film Girl 1 tragically takes her own life, we will incorporate signs of depression through the whole film.
The main message of the film is to break down stigma around the deaf and the LGBTQ+ community.

I am looking for two girls that will deliver a deep and clever portrayal of these two girls falling in love - despite the obstacles they face.
Nothing in particular is required apart from ability to travel in and around London and you must be comfortable with the idea of being in a WLW relationship to make your portrayal believable.

Audition / Rehearsal / Production dates

Shooting will primarily be next summer - most likely in July. However, I'd like to shoot a few winter scenes so I would need availability towards the end of December if possible. This would only be three days at most.

Job payment

Unpaid – this is a collaboration opportunity

Expenses paid - Travel to and from filming locations and any food or drink will be paid for by me! However, payment will be received after the final edit.

Collaborations should create mutual benefit and are usually amateur, student or 'Time for Print' projects.

All advertisers agree to abide by the UK National Minimum Wage Act and are responsible for defining the nature of their production and any payment requirements. Find out more.

Female lead Girl 2 (read brief)

This girl is actually deaf, it is not required for the actress to know BSL or any form of sign language, however this would be a great help! I just need someone that will deliver a real and honest portrayal of a deaf girl. She is soft and has magnetic energy, which draws Girl 1 to her instantly.

Female, aged 18 to 21
