Extras - SFTN/Creative Scotland Short Film

Hi there,

I am the producer of a short film entitled "Bunny". We're looking for a number of extras (ideally over 35) for scenes shooting this Friday and Saturday. Our cast includes Conor Newall (world famous model from Govan), Connor McCaron (Neds), Daniela Nardini (This Life), Gilly Gilchrist (Outlaw King/River City) and Conor McCarry (Outlander).

If anyone is interested and free on Fri and/or Saturday please can you tell them to get in touch with me with a picture and their contact details. I've attached our background info and some mood images.

Best
David

EXTRAS CASTING CALL
"BUNNY" | SFTN Short Film
MEN & WOMEN: Over 40 please

Shooting Fri 15 & Sat 16 December in Glasgow Southside.

Hi everyone,

We are looking for around 10 background artists to join our production for some scenes in a bingo hall and pub.

“Bunny” is an exciting new short film that upon completion will go into feature-length development. It is a drama about Buckley, an emotionally repressed young man who is challenged by disruptive outsiders to face up to his leporine delusion. Our cast and crew will include internationally recognised and BAFTA-winning talent.

For these scenes we would like people to wear fashion circa the 80's but nothing flashy. It all needs to blend into the background, kind of non descriptive, with no large logos. I have attached a mood board below.

If interested please email me at david@hiddentigerproductions.co.uk with a recent photograph of yourself.

This is an unpaid role unfortunately.

Thanks!

People

Do you want to be a film star?

Mixing the Medium



So .. you want to be a film star? You could be exactly the person Banbury Cross Players are looking for. “But don’t they just do theatre?” we hear you cry. Of course! But in our April 2018 production, we’re mixing our mediums.

Alan Bennett’s People has a hilarious scene in the second Act where a film crew (of a less than salubrious nature) invade the house
– taking full advantage of a historic four-poster bed.

BCP are looking for a 20-something film star. Colin is handsome, athletic ... and a teeny bit moody – particularly when faced with his co-star, luscious Latvian Brit, and her insistence on knitting between scenes.

Alan Bennett successfully blends satire with nostalgia to produce a thought-provoking piece of theatre in People.

Dorothy’s inheritance is an old, run-down mansion she can’t afford to maintain. The play follows various attempts by her and her sister to resolve the issue. These include “gifting” to the National Trust; selling to a property developer, and film-making. Underground rumblings from a disused coalmine, the discovery of a large number of (still full) chamber pots and an untimely visit from the Bishop make for a show full of fruitful conflict.

Production dates are 25th – 28th April 2018 at The Mill Arts Centre, Banbury. You will need to be available from Sunday 22 April 2018 for Technical and Dress Rehearsals. You do not need to be a member to audition but will be required to join if cast. Click for further details on BCP membership.

If you think you could be our Colin contact Director Ray Atkinson on 01295 721013 or 07899 796993 or by email to ray@wadenhoeconsultancy.com.

Actress Wanted for 10 Minute Drama

Hi there,
I am speaking on behalf of the University of Gloucestershire Television Course. We are looking for a female actress to participate in a 10 minute drama. The story involves con artists faking a kidnapping. It's part of my groups module and it would be shot roughly during the end of this week and the following, 2 shooting days.

In reference to the shooting days they will probably be 6 hours but the location will be in Evesham. So we will try to do as many scenes as possible while on location.

Budding Presenter Wanted

I am contacting you from an international training company based in Dorset. We are looking for a budding presenter to present an online training course.

The crew have been booked for 30th January – although there may be some flexibility around this date.

The individual should have excellent, fluid reading skills with the ability to read from autocue while simultaneously engaging an online audience through confident and articulate delivery.

Although we are keen to find someone of middle eastern ethnicity or knowledge of the region in line with the cultural theme of the video, ethnic background isn’t essential.

This is an excellent opportunity for someone who wants to add these skills to their portfolio.

There will also be subsequent opportunities for further delivery as we have a number of online videos planned.

We will audition any potential applicants.

Please contact me on ncpayne@commisceo-global.com or on 0196323253.

Many thanks,

Nikki

Help needed

I work in a school in Cookstown Co. Tyrone. We are wondering could anyone point us in the right direction for someone to help us write and act out a short western bar scene.

We are making a video on e.safety and there is a scene in it where one of the characters travels back in time to 1845 to a saloon to tackle an enemy who sent him a message way back then.

We intend to get staff and students involved.

Could anyone guide us as to where we could get a set to film that scene and the best place to hire some props and costumes.

We very much appreciate any advice or help you could give us.
