Male & Female Lead Required for Film & Associated Music Video

United Kingdom
Listed by View details

For our next production SUNG we are looking to cast the 2 leads. SUNG explores the relationship between MONTY, a music icon who found fame at a young age who is now struggling with the death of her band members, and her highly successful manager JACKSON, who has also been a friend for many years.

We are also looking for Monty's BAND - see seperate casting call if you are part of, or know of a band who might be interested.

The film will be shot on location and studio, in Spring / Early Summer of 2017, most likely a 3-day shoot. This is very much a dialogue driven piece, covering difficult subject matters, with some long monologue performances which we intend to shoot multi-camera "real time" in a documentary style. Therefore actors with theatre experience maybe particularly suited for these roles.

Prior to shooting the film itself, and as background to the story, we will shoot a full music video featuring Monty, her former band, and a large supporting cast. It is hoped to shoot this around the end of 2016 / early 2017, which will be a 2-day shoot.

We will also need Monty and Jackson for a day of background photographs to be used by the art department for album covers, posters, historic photos and press articles etc., seen in the film.

We have yet to confirm locations, but will all be in the area roughly bounded by Midlands, Berkshire, and Hertfordshire.

Both the music video and film will have very high production values, produced by a professional crew.

The film will receive an extensive festival run, and if well received is likely to be the catalyst for a feature length version.

These are paid roles, but as with all short films budget will be very tight as there is no realistic prospect of monetising short films. However, we do value talent; we will not put the film into production unless all cast and crew can be paid.

MONTY - a charismatic music icon

Monty is lost in her own grief as she cannot let go of the death of her friends. She wears a mask of resilience, but that mask is slipping now as she struggles to find the happiness she had. She is reclusive, constantly analysing her own identity and wants to escape what she has become. Ideally the successful applicant will have a good singing voice as well as acting capabilities, however we would consider an exceptional actress whose singing abilities are not so strong.

Female, aged 20 to 25

JACKSON - a slick, successful music producer

Jackson, a long time friend and producer for Monty, looks to be as caring as he can be for her but also has to come in as the voice of reason for her to pick herself back up from tragedy. He is a smart and determined business man and passionate about Monty succeeding. He will do anything to make sure that happens.

Male, aged 30 to 35
