Casting for student short film in Liverpool

We are a group of Film and Moving Image Production students in our 2nd year at Norwich University of the Arts. This is a casting call for a male lead in an original short film for our school project.
Character: Robber of a sex shop
Name: Rob
Gender: Male
Sexuality: Homosexual
Playing age: 35 - 40 years old
Other physical characteristics: Any ethnicity, large frame (at least 6 ft. tall)
Personality traits(outside of scenario): Open minded, passive in his relationship, patient, giving
Personality traits(in scenario): Volatile and unpredictable, aggressive/impulsive, inexperienced, commanding
Wants: spend more time with his partner, a more active sex life, try new things, be in control
Needs: to get in touch on a more intimate level with his partner, to get outside his comfort zone

Rob is 10 years into a loving relationship with his partner, Owen. On the night of their anniversary, he has the owner of a local sex shop at knifepoint. When he tries to make his escape, it is revealed that the silent alarm has been triggered, the owner seems to have regained control of the situation. This pushes Rob off the edge and causes things to get physical. We see that he has hands his around the shop owner's throat, when a safe word is uttered. It is then when both Rob and the shop owner (Owen) plop to the ground and exchange notes about their performance. This was role-play all along, their romantic way of celebrating a milestone together.
**There is no nudity involved**

Shooting location: Liverpool

Shooting dates: 22 Jan, 23 Jan evening shoots

Payment details: Expenses only- Food, travel expenses and/or accommodation will be provided

Production title: Come as You Please

The Inaccurate Conception

Author: by Richard Ahsam and Geoff Saunders

The Inaccurate Conception

A young teacher is ‘volunteered’ to do the school nativity play but the rest of the staff are less than co-operative. We all remember what can go wrong when youngsters venture on stage for the first time and, in this very wittily-written play, the twist is that the adults in our group play the children whilst our young members play the teachers and parents – very amusingly I might add. Will it be “Alright on the night?”

42nd Street – Curtain Up Productions
Review by Eira Hammond @eirajane


This glitzy, glamorous production has wowed audiences around the world, including Broadway and the West End and has now come to the Memorial Hall, Cleethorpes for a very limited 5 night run. The story is set in Broadway, and based on auditions and rehearsals for a musical, Pretty Lady.

Caroline Wright in the programme says:

“With love entwined throughout, the story may be a little dated but it’s aged to perfection and the fabulous musical numbers will leave you tapping your toes with a smile on your face and a song in your heart. Musicals just don’t get any better than this!”

She’s not wrong, I had a smile on my face throughout the whole show and if I had time this week I’d certainly be going again and urge you all to get to the coast and have a fabulous night out this week!

Hi Im 50 is there a group for me?

Peter's response:

Hello Julia,

The answer is yes of course, age is no barrier to joining an amateur dramatics group.

You don’t say where you are located and I’m afraid I probably wouldn’t know the groups or schools in your area and so would be unable to make any recommendations. I suggest you take a look at the Groups section of the www.dramagroups.com website and check the groups and schools in your County/Region. There will be groups and societies listed with contact details. If in doubt click on the group name or logo and that will take you directly to the group’s own website. In my experience most groups and schools would welcome any new member with open arms.

Best of luck, let me know how you get on.
