Castings: Actors for Pilot

London, UK
Listed by View details

Before you start, please be aware, that all those selected from this casting, will be required to submit a video audition from a segment of the script which you will be sent to you (around the 19th of September). Please do not apply if you will be unable to send a video audition before Friday 26th September, should you be selected.
I am aiming in November to film a 45 min Pilot, which will be edited a distributed by the end of the year. To raise funds to film a full 10/11 episode series.
Unfortunately I can not give to much away in plot at this time, however it is aiming to be a fast paced action/drama based in London, involving Assassins, Government conspiracies, Honest detectives and a lot fights, chases and cleaver characters.
The goal with the Pilot will be to turn a few heads, introduce some exciting characters and an interesting story line, so that we can get people interested. Thus giving us the chance to approach funding from channels, raise money through Kickstarter or by selling merchandise on our website (under construction).
Yet the main goal, will be to produce something that looks the real deal. I have worked hard on the script and have been working even harder on the story board.
All the roles will be unpaid (for the pilot), however I have been involved in a number of projects now and will insure that food will always be provided, along with shelter on out side shots.

This will be an exciting project for people to be involved in as it seems to be getting attention from those I have spoken to, about it. It will include an IMDB casting and show reel footage will also be available for you.
The dates are not conclusive yet as I am waiting for confirmation in regards to some of the locations and also I have to take casting in to consideration.
As I am working as a 1st AD for a feature film over October, I am wanting to have all the casting completed before the end of this month, so scripts can be sent out, along with fight scene choreography for certain characters. So that I can focus on the feature film during October and then pick up with everyone at the start of November and start filming the pilot.

I had planned to film it DSLR, however I have got interest from a number DOP's so it could end up being filmed to a very high standard. But will say for now, it's DSLR.
There are a lot of characters to cover, which will all have there own short film (as such) in the pilot, however there are also main characters which have small roles in the pilot, yet become bigger in later episodes should the series take off.
We also have some main characters for the pilot, which could offer a great chance for anyone's showreel, should they need dialogue, stunts or even death scenes.
It is a big project, but I believe if you want to make it in this industry, you need to give people something they can really immerse themselves in and that is what I hope to do in November.
So have a look through the characters and if you feel that you would like to be involved, I look forward to hearing from you.
