PANTO PARTY NIGHTS...


Fancy working with a former bluecoat entertainer? Want to raise money for your group? If so read on! I’ve had a meeting with a local social club and instead of forming a panto company I’m keen to work with an established group.

“Christmas is coming the Goose was rather fat, for Panto Party Nights just call Matt”

At Christmas time many companies have Christmas do’s and I thought it would be a great idea to have an evening where they could eat, drink, dance AND see a panto! (a shortened version) I want the panto to be educational (they’ll be heard to mutter on the way out ‘that taught me a lesson!) seriously I want them to say that it was a fun night out, very professional and great value for money!

The pantomime that I have penned is Cinderella (In my opinion THE best pantomime) and it’s a shortened version but it has all the essential ‘ingredients’ singing, dancing and comedy and during the ballroom scene the audience could be guests at the ball! It could work in a similar way to a murder mystery (scenes in between courses) or after the meal.

I envisage us holding two possibly three panto party nights at a local Social Club- Dec 1st/2nd or 8/9 or 15/16. (It’s a totally unique idea, will require promoting, people committing their time and we want a Full House!)
To promote the night I was thinking of possibly a launch at the club for the press? They could take pictures, meet the cast, see a snippet of the show and run an article about us! We would also need to promote it via social media, posters etc.

I'm based in Kings Heath and the party nights will be in south Birmingham.

These are my thoughts/ramblings and I hope you like the idea, If so I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you all and answer any questions that you may have..Oh yes I would!

I look forward to hearing from you.

Regards,

Matt Franks

In Need of Actors

I am a film student looking for a small group of actors who would be willing to act in a narrative film I am currently making.

The film is a short comedy drama about a man who finds himself stuck after unknowingly causing an affair between a dysfunctional couple. I need three actors: Toby a 26-31 year old man, with a light build, Jemma a 30-35 year old woman: Brown hair. And Daniel a 30-40 year old man, tall, slightly out of shape. There is no nudity, but there will be scenes for Toby and Jemma in underwear. Anyone who gets in touch with me directly will get a copy of the script.

I am located in Bournemouth and the shoot will go on in the city. I am still working on getting the location.

The dates of the shoot will be within the 24th of April to the 5th of March.

I am willing to pay expenses. But obviously I am a student and won't be able to spend too much.

They will receive a copy of the finished film for their portfolio.

The performance has received rave reviews from Edinburgh festival and the Brighton Fringe amongst others. People report again and again how much lighter and more relaxed they feel when they approach the subject of death in the company of others. Far from being gloomy, death can be a very life enhancing subject.

This is a free ticketed event being held at Becket Keys Church of England School, Sawyers Hall Lane, Brentwood at 7.30pm on Friday 12th May. The show runs for 90 minutes without interval and refreshments will be available.

Please support us by sharing this event with all interested parties. It may be of particular interest to your Religious Studies students.

Friday May 12th ‘OUTSIDE THE BOX - A Live Show about Death’

Becket Keys Church of England School, Sawyers Hall Lane, Brentwood, 7.30PM

Written and performed by Liz Rothschild and Directed by Jo Bousfield

WARNING: THIS SHOW MIGHT CHANGE YOUR LIFE ...AND YOUR DEATH

Liz is a performer, celebrant and award winning burial ground owner. Her unique insights and experiences have created a highly original and beautifully cathartic show, combining mercurial tales and miraculous truths, collected over the years from life’s finishing line.

Funny, wise and taboo busting; Outside The Box confronts the 'Elephant in the room' with grace and humour, asking its audience to embrace mortality and look on the bright side of life, with a weave of untold and surprising stories, a hint of history and some pithy commentary on the funeral industry (from one who knows!).

Reviews

“A remarkably refreshing and important show, gently dancing on the line between playful irreverence and necessary solemnity” Broadway Baby, Edinburgh Festival 2016

“I’d like to see it performed in every Fringe Festival and every village hall in the UK!” Zelah Senior, Brighton Fringe 2016

This is a free ticketed event sponsored by Bennetts Funerals. For tickets please call Bridget or Lucienne at Bennetts on 01277 210104/627492. The show runs for 90 minutes without interval. Refreshments will be available.

The Resort - Prime-Time ITV1 New Doc.

My name is Simon Warrington and I work for Spun Gold TV. We are one of the UK’s top TV companies, producing for BBC, ITV, C4, SKY and Channel Five. We always work hand in hand with our contributors - and testimony to that, are programmes we have made with the British Royal Family: such as, “All The Queen’s Horses” “Prince William In Africa, “The Duke At 90” and “When Ant And Dec Met The Prince”(celebrating 40 years of the Prince’s Trust). I only mention this to illustrate how trusted we are at the very highest level.

We are producing a brand new documentary, prime-time ITV1, 9pm and we are looking to take plus-size individuals to ‘The Resort’ – a Plus-Size only hotel in the beautiful Bahamas. The resort isn’t a weight loss retreat, or reality TV show. It is for plus-size individuals who (some for the first time) can go on holiday away from judgemental eyes, horrible comments and just have a wonderful time. We think everyone deserves a chance to enjoy themselves. It will be an empowering documentary and we hope these individuals we take something away from the holiday: confidence, taking their top off at the beach for the first time, being able to fit on the aeroplane seat.

However, we need a mix of personalities, especially men who are confident with their size and don’t let it hold them back and I wanted to see if there was anyone within am dram groups you could you knew or could recommend? The dates are April 2nd – April 9th.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Regards,
Simon.

Extra's Needed

Hi there,

My name is Kieron Grist and I'm a producer based in Cheltenham at the University of Gloucestershire.

We are creating a short film (5-7 minutes) which is based a few years in the future around a woman who takes advantage of future dating technology to build a relationship with someone who doesn't know that she exists.

The dating technology resolves around an app where the human user (referred to as Alpha) can have an android (referred to as Beta) sent to them which is made up of their online appearance (through photo's) and online behaviour and personality. The user can date other people's Beta's so the first date can happen without any awkwardness that can happen between two humans on a first date. If the date goes well, the Beta's Alpha can then go on dates with the user.

The film is based in Cheltenham, with six out of our four scenes are set within a restaurant, and we are looking for people/extras between the ages of 25-55 to fill the restaurant as diners, as well as one waiter. The work is unpaid but we will have food and drinks available on set.

We are looking to shoot on the 3rd and 4th of April.
If you are able to help us then please feel free to email me.

Many thanks,
Kieron

I am hoping that some individuals from one of your drama groups would be willing and able to act in our short film.

Attached is the film script. Click here

Apologises for the lateness of this email, but we are really hoping that you can help us out ,given such short notice.

Collaboration - MA student at NUA

Hi, my name is Gudbjorg Ylfa and I'm currently studying at Norwich University of the Arts. I'm doing my masters in Photography and for my current project I am researching cultural differences within folklore and fairy tales. I am wondering if you had any people that would be interested in collaborating with me, I'm in need of models/muas/stylists. I will be doing some moving image as well as photographing my shoots so it would be very good to have someone that is interested in acting.

A brief introduction to my project:

I am researching the cultural differences within folklore and fairytales, this project is a continuation from my first term of my MA where I looked at Icelandic folklore stories and lullabies and looked at the history of them. It got me interested in how much fairy tales and folklore affect us, both as children and grown ups. I have sent out questionnaires to international people that I know and I am hoping to get a few stories from other countries to see how different they are (from country to country). So right now I can't say what kind of shoots I will definitely be doing (as I have just sent out the questionnaire) but the whole aesthetics of the shoot will be quite dreamlike, ethereal, a bit eerie and uncanny (as fairytales/folklore stories usually are).

I am based in Norwich and would like to work in or around Norwich. I would not be able to pay so this would be on a TFP basis but you as a drama group could also use these images for you social media, promotions, etc.

If anyone that is interested, please get in touch with me through email gudbjorg.jensdottir@student.nua.ac.uk and you can also see some of my previous works on www.gudbjorgylfa.com

Best regards,
Gudbjorg Ylfa

BBC2: The Big Life Fix With Simon Reeve


Big Life Fix

Hi,

I’m writing to you from Studio Lambert, the BAFTA-winning TV production company behind Gogglebox, The Great Interior Design Challenge and Doctor in the House.

We are currently producing the second series of the hit BBC Two show “Big Life Fix”, an exciting and innovative science series that sees a skilled team of scientists, engineers and designers create bespoke technology for individuals and groups to transform their lives for the better.

In the first series, our team came up with solutions for a range of issues affecting individuals and communities, including creating a device to counter the effects of Parkinson’s disease for a young graphic designer, building a bicycle for a boy born with no hands or feet, and connecting a remote village in Wales up to the internet.

If you’re not familiar with the show, here is a short clip which should hopefully illustrate the premise and tone of the series: www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p04jylxm

For the second series we are again looking for more people who feel they could benefit from a tailor-made invention. We are looking for individuals who can’t do something which we believe everyone should have the opportunity to do (like being able to write your own name). We also want to include stories about people whose condition or situation prevents them from doing something they love or used to love doing (like riding a bike). Essentially, we’re looking to help anyone who thinks their life (or someone’s they know) could be improved by our brilliant fix team of engineers and inventors and we wondered whether there’s anything our team could design to benefit anyone connected to your group?

If anyone is interested in applying, they can call the casting team on 0203 040 6908 or email us at biglifefix@studiolambert.com. All calls are treated in the strictest of confidence. Alternatively, a short contact form can be filled out here to express interest in the show: www.studiolambert.com/take-part-the-big-life-fix.html

Best wishes,
Ellie

Comedy Central - Pilot (Real life Couples needed)


Hook Up

Hi there,
I’m working on a pilot for Comedy Central and am looking for Real Life couples to take part in the show and share their stories on how they met. The more interesting stories the better.

At the moment I am focusing on getting the real-life couples and would like people that are good on camera and can improvise. I would like to speak with any couples that would be happy to discuss their relationship on camera?

There will be a fee involved and we would need the couple for 1 day between 27th March-7th April.

All the best,

Charlotte

Short Film

Hello,

My name is Brieana and I'm a third year student at MMU studying Film and Media. I'm trying to put my graduate film together at the moment and I'm in need of a few actors that might interested in taking part in my short film / coming-of-age drama. The planned shooting dates are for the 5th-9th of March and will take place in the afternoon and evening.

The basic premise of the story is that a group of friends come together for a dinner party one evening, however the moment the first guest arrives everything starts going wrong.

The roles we need to fill are:
- Klaire (protagonist)
Klaire is 22. Now at the end of her Event Management degree she begins to question whether the path she has chosen is the right one for her. Always trying to control and make a situation perfect, she is the most vulnerable, sensitive and doubtful of her friend group.
- Jonny
Jonny is 22. Seemingly intelligent but turns out to be a bit of a jerk. He’s out to impress even if that means making his pal the butt of the joke.
- Zoe (minor)
Zoe is 19, and Jonny’s new younger girlfriend. A first year student who is too sweet and naive to see through Jonny’s confident facade.

Location: West Didsbury

Kind regards

As discussed in the last Fusion Meeting there will be a month of various cultural activities that will take place in March 2017. Part of the calendar was to hold a large scale weekend event on the 4th and 5th of March.

We will be holding a large scale event on the 4th of March in Llanelli Town Centre, where we have arranged a large variety of activities, entertainers and cultural initiatives; all based strongly on the theme of Welsh culture!

We were wondering if any performers would like to be involved in the day (Saturday the 4th of March)? Potentially to practice some upcoming shows/ performances while gaining community promotion for it.

We would be grateful for any singing/ dancing/ performances or any other type of performances that may be on offer.

Local Casting Call

Voluntary actors wanted for 8-10 minute student film. Expenses, such as food and travel paid. Free copy of the finished film will be provided.

PLOT:
Two men wake up in a room, handcuffed to a table. Neither has any memory of how they got there, between them sits a gun containing one bullet in a sick game with human life. The two men must try to find a way of escape before realising their only solution is for one of them to die.
A psychologically complex story which throws our own morals into question. An excellent opportunity for actors to get work on their show reel and display range and depth.

ROLES:
Levi – Male, 25-40, any races or accents accepted.
The older and more mature of the two. On first appearances Levi seems much calmer and more willing to try and talk through the situation. However, as the story progresses his backstory becomes more and more vague and the audience is never truly sure of his intentions.
In the end, after Nev reaches for the gun, Levi is able to talk him down, only to then reach for the gun himself.

Nev – Male, 18-26, any races or accents accepted.
The younger of the pair. Nev is much more stand-offish to begin with, never quite able to trust Levi. As the film progresses Nev becomes more and more sur that Levi is attempting to manipulate him and take the gun for himself, leading Nev to take the gun in a blind panic; however, his religious beliefs stop him from being able to use it and he is eventually manipulated by Levi.

We will be filming locally in Lincolnshire on the 21st, 23rd, and 28th of February and the 2nd of March.

Volunteers for Awareness Stunt on Refugee Girls

Hi,

Plan International Ireland are holding an awareness stunt on Refugee Girls and the barriers they face- including child marriage, gender based violence and denial of education in the style of a mannequin challenge/flash mob stunt.

We need 10-15 men who would be willing to volunteer for the child marriage part of the stunt- these men will stand in front of the child brides in suits. It is to highlight that refugee girls are often forced to marry young for safety and their life is often on hold as a refugee.

Are there any volunteers who could come along next Wednesday 22nd February 8am-9.30am on South King Street and take part in the stunt?

Volunteers would be wearing suits/shirt and ties as well as volunteers who would be wearing normal clothes.

Please let me know if you would like to be involved.

It would be greatly appreciated. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me

Kindest Regards

Actors needed for music video - 14th Feb

Hi there,

I artists to feature in a music video next Monday 14th February?

I'm looking for 2 x models / actors / body artists to appear next to the lead singer.

Body type needs to be 5'6 - 5'8ft androgynous female. She will appear wrapped in material, mild nudity may be featured.

Filming will take place for around 3 hours @ £10 per hour - London based only.

I know it’s not much pay but it’s a very low budget music vid and I was hoping to appeal to the more artistic crowd who could feature it on their reel.

Let me know if you might be interested!
