ITVs LITTLE BIG SHOTS SERIES 2 IS CASTING NOW!

Little Big Shots

Hi, my name is Lewis and I am a Casting Researcher on the new series of the hit ITV show - Little Big Shots hosted by the simply lovely Dawn French. The first series peaked with over 5 million viewers and we are delighted to be back shining the spotlight on more amazing kids.

The programme simply celebrates young talent and funny, entertaining children – from teeny tap dancers to dinosaur experts, from viral superstars to acrobats, impressionists to comedians, from superb singers to Rubik’s Cube speed champions, mathematicians to sensational spellers. It is not a competition or game show. Whether individuals, duos or groups of youngsters, the only rule is that the child is between the ages of 3 and 13.

We are looking for performers and skills of all kinds and would love to know if you think there might be someone in your organisation that knows a potential Little Big Shot! Whether it be a mini Shakespeare, future headliner or an Oscar-winning performer we want to hear from you!

Parents or guardians who may wish to nominate their child please use the following direct link to our applications page: https://www.walltowall.co.uk/casting/little-big-shots_1019.aspx

Our YouTube channel has clips from the first series and the link can be found below:

Thank you very much for your time,
Best wishes

Voiceovers required for film short

I am the producer of a small pilot film - about 10 mins long - The pilot will be used as a pitch for any independent film director (e.g. Ken Loach), who might be interested in taking up an option on an extant screenplay called ‘Betrayal’. The story is based on the actual experience of two Americans who - along with thousands of others - went to the Soviet Union in the early 1930s, in order to help build socialism. But they found themselves in a living hell, because their arrival coincided with the rise of Stalin’s terror state! You could describe it as a political thriller. Our aim is for a feature film to be completed in time for the centenary of the Russian Revolution, i.e. October 2017.

The pilot is almost completed. But we need two actors to do voiceovers for the middle-aged American couple who are at the centre of the story. N.B. The actors do not have to act out their roles in front of camera. If you can find anyone who might be interested in helping us, we would be most grateful. We are happy to send you the script for the pilot film in due course..

Because we are operating on a very limited budget, and having exhausted the patience of our own friends (!), we are now turning to our local thespians for help. We are willing to pay for the services of the two actors, as long as it is not too expensive to hire them. The dialogue they will speak only lasts about 5 minutes.

One Act Play Festival 2017 Winners

Hello All,

First of all, many thanks to all the societies who made the effort to enter and support the GMDF One Act Play Festival. You made it an absolutely cracking week's theatre. Diversity, courage, comedy, tremendous energy and creativity all came to the fore. The other big plus was that this year saw the largest number of entries into the original play section which is always encouraging.

Huge thanks to our adjudicator Martin Paul Roche, like Carmel last year, he had some massively difficult choices to make, the bar was very high. However, we've heard from him today so he's survived......

Huge thanks to to CHADs Theatre for allowing us to invade their theatre and for all their help.

The list of winners is here.

We will be in touch in early September with full details of next year's Festival.

Many thanks
Paul Cohen - One Act Festival Secretary

The Annual General Meeting will be held on Monday 14th August 7.30pm

Actors required for Student Film

Hi there,

I am an MA film student at University of the Arts London, embarking on production on our final graduation film ‘An Estuary’.

This is the first ever Film Masters course at the university, and so we are breaking new ground and making films at an even higher level than our amazing BA course.

Though technically still students, the eight of us are looking to make a high-quality, industry standard film that will break into the international film festival circuit. We are all accomplished young filmmakers with experience working in the industry and already have over 20 titles between us.

Specifically, we need some help finding featured supporting actor casting... We are after a married couple (here’s the casting call)

'Looking for two people to portray a married couple who are seen both arguing and enjoying each other’s company in the same bizarre evening.’

It would be an expenses only (unfortunately) couple of hours shooting in Oxford city centre in the evening of either 21st/22nd June.

If anyone is interested please contact me.

We are looking for 3 supporting artists for paid speaking roles alongside real taxi drivers from Middlesbrough who will lead the performance. Please find the open casting call attached, the emphasis is very much on non-professionals.

Voluntary actors required

Hi,

My name is Amanda Hart, author of the memoirs, The Guys Upstairs.

We currently have a campaign created and supported by many people to take the book (which has been adapted to a screenplay) to the big screen.

We're currently looking for actors of varying ages who would love to volunteer for some short video film shooting for YouTube.

This is a voluntary project, aiming to create 4 short 3 minute videos which is backed by Information TV http://www.information.tv/.

All actors and narrators that we currently have are involved with a view that this will give them exposure and a chance to be involved in a viral social media campaign which is linked with TV work on Sky, the book and a film adaptation of the book.

As we have a strict deadline, we would need you to get in touch with us asap to let us know if you know of anyone who would be interested in a day or so of filming within the next few weeks.

We are currently looking for a male role (around 42) who can play the role of Lewis Collins (the actor), a 19 year old female, preferably a brunette with mid to long hair and another male around 42 (with dark hair).

We also need two late 20's, early 30's females (1 needs to have similar dark longish hair).

If you feel that you can help in any way then we would very much appreciate this as we're reaching out to give as many local people the opportunity to be involved.

I look forward to hearing from you.

With best wishes

Amanda Hart

1930's themed silent fantasy drama project

I am currently writing, producing and directing a 1930's themed silent fantasy drama project as part of a course, also with an original soundtrack. I would like to ask if some drama group website members would be interested in participating as actors in the film at a location in central Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk? I will need two couples- female and male, one couple of which will star as the leading lady and man. In addition, I require three people - two males and one female to act as the leading man's friends, as well as a big band jazz group consisting of brass players, a bass player, a piano player, a jazz guitar player and a drummer, including 40 or more people willing to act as crowd extras.

It would be invaluable if all actors, but particularly for the leading actors to have experience of either swing, jazz, or tap dancing, as well as a great interest and preferably acting experience in the silent film style. Experience is not absolutely essential but great enthusiasm to take part and a passion for the 1930's era, including the music, dancing, dancing, fashion and culture that was a major part of this era is very important for all actors to possess, as well as some knowledge and love of Charlie Chaplin's film style, Fred Astaire's films, classic retro musicals and the style of Michael Jackson's music videos and live performances of his songs Smooth Criminal and Dangerous which have inspired this film. I will send further information regarding the film, including the storyline on the confirmation of the actors participation. I would really appreciate if some would be able to take part. I can be contacted on either by email or the methods below.

Many thanks and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

CASTING OPPORTUNITY FOR FEATURE FILM

We are a casting company for film and television called 'Des Hamilton Casting'. Our previous work includes 'Bronson' (Tom Hardy), 'War Machine' (Brad Pitt) and 'Only God Forgives' (Ryan Gosling) for more examples of our work please visit our website.

Just to give you some background, we are well known within the industry for our unorthodox methods of casting, often visiting community centres and drama groups etc. when casting for films, rather than going via the traditional actor/agent route. Therefore, I cannot stress enough that NO PREVIOUS PROFESSIONAL ACTING EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY.

We are currently casting for a FEATURE FILM by a renowned Australian director.
We are looking for A MAN IN HIS LATE TEENS TO EARLY 20's to play the lead role. The director is particularly interested in seeing boxers or people with that physique.

Anyone who fits the brief and is interested in this project should email assistant@deshamilton.com with a photograph. We would really appreciate it if you could circulate this exciting opportunity to as many people as possible. I have attached a flyer which can be printed or posted on social media.

Casting Call for Studio Musical!

Hi there!

I'm a third year TV Production student at Bournemouth University and I'm currently producing a 20 minute studio based comedy musical for my final project. I was wondering if you could send this round to members of your theatre course? The shoot dates are the 24th - 26th May, but the actors will be needed for one or two days next week to pre-record the songs.

The songs will be professionally recorded in a Foley studio and the actors will receive copies of the final show, I am also available to edit together showreels as a thank you! Due to the fact that this is a student production, I have a very limited budget so will not be able to pay the actors, but food will be provided on the shoot days and they will also receive a small budget to pick out costumes for their characters.

I am looking to cast 7 characters, 1 male and 6 female. All need to be able to sing and must look like they are in their late teens.

Casting Call
All characters must look between 16-18 years old, and be able to do an American accent.
Each character also features on at least one song, listed below.
Blair - Loud, unapologetic and brutally honest. Dreams of making it big in Hollywood. -
Rachel Berry from Glee?
Heather - Always spaced out, not very smart. Very good at martial arts though. - Karen from Mean Girls/ Brittany from Glee?
Heather (2) - Desperately tries to befriend the girls, but they’re never nice to her. - like Lavender Brown from Harry Potter but evil?
Carrie - Cautious, very intelligent, so much so that she can sometimes come across pretentious. - Felicity from Arrow/ Quinn from Glee
Tiffany - Popularity is everything. Gretchen Weiners from Mean Girls/ Santana from Glee?
Lillith - Constantly picked on, mainly by Heather. Clumsy but sweet. - like Charlotte from
Geordie Shore?
Freddy - Tiffany’s creepy older brother. Goes to the same school as the girls. - like Kilgrave from Jessica Jones

Songs:
Everyone’s Invited - upbeat pop song ft. Blair, Heather, Carrie, Tiffany, Lillith
Ode to a Pretty Girl - slow, creepy song ft. Freddy
(Whodunnit song) - fast paced spoken word, a bit like Your Fault from Into The Woods, ft.
Freddy, Blair, Heather, Heather (2), Carrie, Tiffany
Confessional - starts off slow then turns into power ballad, ft. Heather (2)

If anyone wants more information about the project then feel free to email me at milah3000@hotmail.co.uk!

CASTING CALL: Multiple Roles for Brighton Based Feature Film

Nightwaves

Nightwaves

I am casting several roles for a feature length film Nightwaves directed by David Irons who sold his first feature at Cannes last year.
The film will be shot in mainly in Brighton. The project currently is expenses only. However, we are in the process of securing funding, and some requires actors to be onboard.
Many thanks,
Rebecca

Character Briefs

KIRSTEN [ FEMALE LEAD, AGED: 18-25, LONDON/SOUTHERN UK ACCENT, ANY ETHNICITY]
Kirsten is intelligent strong but gentle ex-¬-model who quits the industry after being pushed too far by an unruly client. She moves to Brighton to join her cousin Simone and concentrate on her illustrating work away from the banal modeling world which she has grown to despise. However, something in the sea has been waiting for her…

SIMONE [FEMALE LEAD, 18-30, LONDON/SOUTHERN UK ACCENT, ANY ETHNICITY]
Simone (Kirsten cousin and Geena’s girlfriend) is independent, strong willed, loud-mouthed and often abrasive, although she has soft-¬-spots for her favorite cousin Kirsten and long-term girlfriend, Geena. Simone works as a designer in Brighton running her own business of designing and crafting neon signs. Instead, she is dragged into a world of nightmare, shadowed by the creatures from beneath the sea.

GEENA [SUPPORT FEMALE, AGE 18-30, UK ACCENT, ANY ETHNICITY]
Geena is Simone's dependent and bratty girlfriend. She’s a tease who gets through life on flirtatious behavior and the philosophy that playing dumb will get you out of everything.

MICKEY [SUPPORT MALE, AGE 18-20, UK ACCENT, ANY ETHNICITY]
Mickey is the introverted, troubled young man who works as a janitor in Simone's apartment building. He is an upbeat depressive with a dry wit and realistic look at the world. He has an eye for the girls not that he has the confidence to do anything about it.

CHARLEY [ SUPPORT FEMALE, AGE, 18-25, UK ACCENT, ANY ETHNICITY]
Charley is a girl who has just found her voice and is ready to up and leaves her abusive boyfriend, Darren. Once a victim she is now hard headed and independent, beginning to take steps into a new life, one that may not last very long.

DARREN [ SUPPORT MALE, AGE, 25-35, UK ACCENT, ANY ETHNICITY)
Charley’s loud, obnoxious and abusive boyfriend. Darren is more interested in his car and other girls that his relationship with Charley, he is oblivious to her recent transformation.
Note: there are no sides for Darren so, please send in your headshot and link to your show reel if you have one.

About the film
Nightwaves: A gothic neon noir horror story. Imagine H.P Lovecraft painted by Patrick Nagel.

A kind of a cross between the Argento/Bava Demons.

It Follows with a dash of The Neon Demon mixed with Invasion of the Body Snatchers and Blood Beach. Mixing a stylish blend of night skies and seaside neon, with a soundtrack of haunting eerie saxophone and dark synth pads.

About us
Director David Irons is a Brighton based photographer, author, and director who sold his first feature Cassette at Cannes last year. You can see more of David’s work on his website www.metropolfilms.com.
Actress Lucy Drive has worked on many international films and TV shows. Lucy will play the support role of Melissa, the clairvoyant, view Lucy’s full credits IMDB http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2635051/
Assistant to the director Rebecca Lunato has assisted directors on varied projects including assistant producing several films for NOWNESS and is currently producing a short film supported by the BFI.

About the job
We are in the process of applying for funding and will ensure this job is at least all expenses paid job we are aiming for NFTS / Equity minimum. However, we would like applicants to be interested enough in being part of the project to be flexible to the idea of this changing.
Our aim is to film in the summer July/ August, but this does depend on when we get the funding so it is possible the shoot would be next Spring/Summer. The shoot will run for around 14 days of filming for leads and 5-¬- 10 days for support actors.
We will be making a short to help gain funding using a scene starring DARREN AND CHARLEY to be shot early June over one evening in Brighton.

How to apply
Please upload your self-¬-tape to a private Vimeo/YouTube link and email rebeccalunato@gmail.com with access information by Monday 15th May by 5 pm at the latest. Send an email to let us know we can be expecting your tape.
Film yourself in medium shot or medium close-up shot to ensure we can see your face clearly. You do not need to be totally off-book, so you can use the script for reference.
We will be in contacted shortly if you are invited to an in person recall in Brighton/ London depending on your location.
Note: You are welcome to tape for more than one character or in pairs if you know of other actors who are suitable/interested in the project.
