Curvy Brides Boutique - Series 2!

Curvy Brides


I am working on the second series of the programme ‘Curvy Brides Boutique’ for TLC - a documentary based in a plus sized bridal boutique.

The boutique is run by two fantastic ladies Jo and Al, who use their bridal expertise and personal experience as plus-sized brides to help brides-to-be of all shapes and sizes find the wedding dress of their dreams.

It is a warm and engaging series, and we are currently looking for ladies to take part in filming for series two.

We are casting our net far and wide to find some lovely brides-to-be who are looking for their dream dress.

Interested? Then get in touch with us. The boutique specialises in dresses size 18 and over, so we would love to hear from anyone in this range who is looking for a dress to flatter their figure.

Please email brides@angeleye.co.uk.

Actors required for Music Video

Hi,

I will shortly be shooting a music video and need the following actors:

One leading lady around forty to play the aggrieved wife of a husband who no longer seems to care for her. The lady needs to be around this age in order to fit in the with the subject matter of the lyrics.

I also need four cool younger actors to play the role of my band members. I can provide some instruments but if the actors have any instruments then that would be quite useful. We will be miming to a play back of the song and I hope to shoot most of it in my flat in Thames Ditton in Surrey.

This shoot is done on a shoestring so I'm afraid there's no money but I think it will look good on your showreels.

Have a look at the link below to get a flavour of the music. This is my first single:

In anticipation,

Yours,

Christmas Partnership

I’m in the process of approaching Manchester based drama groups regarding a Christmas Partnership.

I work for Chill Factore in Manchester and we’re keen to partner with a drama group to do a short panto on the snow this Christmas. It could be as short as one scene or a full pantomime depending on the group and what they’re able to deliver and will be an exciting event as the only panto on real snow this Christmas.

We would invite Chill Factore guests to come and enjoy the panto on the snow and promote the drama group on our social channels, website and in promotional activity. It would need to be a simple execution given the logistics of acting on the slope but we can look into the provision of required AV/sound equipment and covering any costs.

It could be a really fun initiative and we’d appreciate any help in sharing the word and putting any possible groups in touch with me.

Thanks,
Helen

Pantomime Winter Wonderland Themed Charity Dinner

I am planning to hold a Pantomime Winter Wonderland Themed Charity Dinner in December in Glasgow city centre and looking for a group that could perform something that links in with the winter wonderland theme.

I am still in the planning process of the events. Currently I am just researching the prices to have a group come out and perform as it will be a charity event so will be on a budget.

It would be in January around the first week and just looking for a 45mins-1 hour performance. Hopefully, all the facilities the group will need will be provided.

St Maragarets Care Home - Reader Required

I have a strange request!
I wondered if any of your associated drama groups would have anyone who would be interested in reading for our residents here at our care home?
We have a resident who is keen to have someone read a book, but stated it would have to be someone who was good at it!
I thought maybe somebody who would be interested?

Best Wishes

Help needed for a NFTS shooting next week

Hi there!

I'm contacting you regarding the project “The girl with two heads”, a film project for the National Film and Television School. We hoped some of your members could be of assistance during the shooting. We are looking for 20 men and women from High Wycombe or near by. Ages between 20-45 to be supporting artists for our short film.

We’re looking for supporting artists in the surrounding areas to come and act as observers of the fight scene and some people acting as trainers for the next fight in the background. All supporting artists are non-speaking. We just require a good attitude and a love for the sport! Filming will take place on a Hight Wycombe Boxing club and artists will be required the 28th and 29th of September. If you’re only available for one of the required shoot dates then please still get in touch as we may be able to accommodate this. Sadly as the school is a charity we’re unable to pay for your time on this occasion but we will provide food and drink throughout the day.

It would be great if people who may be interested in being apart of our film could contact us via email and then we will contact them to answer any questions they may have.

The situation is time sensitive so I would appreciate it if we could "close" everyone in the next couple of days...

Thank you in advance for your assistance in our search!

Cheers,

GRAN KNOWS BEST

NEW TELEVISION PROGRAMME - GRAN KNOWS BEST (W/T)

Shiver Productions are developing an exciting new television programme for a major broadcaster.

We are looking for outgoing grandparents who want to spend more time with their adult grandchildren (who must be 18 plus).

With grandparents reportedly only seeing their grandkids on average twice a year, it’s not surprising the two generations often know little about each other’s lives. In ‘Gran Knows Best’ (w/t), British grandparents will spend one-on-one time with their multiple grandchildren in an attempt to get to know them better and see if they can offer any help.

Along the way they will learn about the pressures their grandchildren face, the lifestyle choices they make, their hopes for the future and what, if anything, is standing in their way of achieving them.

Our programme will allow grandparents to share their knowledge, advice and practical help while learning more about the lives, hopes and aspirations of their grandchildren.

If you are interested – or you know someone who may fit the bill – please call me on 0207 157 4588 or email me on shivercasting@shiver.tv
