CASTING CALL

We’re excited to begin casting various roles for our upcoming noir murder mystery video game - “The Shapeshifting Detective.”

Following on from our critically acclaimed and Guinness World Record Breaking video game “The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker” (2017), The Shapeshifting Detective allows players to question suspects in multiple guises to solve a murder. Responses are delivered directly to camera in full screen video, to make players feel like they’re conversing.

Shooting will take place near Wisbech, King’s Lynn and Milton Keynes at various times during May and June (TBD) and scripts will be released at the end of April. Most roles will also be required to perform voiceovers - some of which may be recorded at home if facilities exist.

Actors around shoot locations preferred (please show yourselves!) but enthusiasm for the project and ability are more important. £10 per hour (not including travel time) or £80 per 8 hour day is offered for all roles and up to £40 expenses per day (travel, costume), please indicate if you are NOT self employed. Refreshments will be available and there are kitchen, toilet and parking facilities at all shooting locations.
