Zombie extras for feature film shoot

Next Level Films. We are shooting a zombie movie in Brentwood, with base at the Kelvedon Hatch Secret Nuclear Bunker.
We are currently looking for actors who may be interested in being zombies in our film. Quality of performance will be very important, so we thought we would get in touch with Essex drama groups to check whether any of the local actors may be interested.
Here are a few details:
This is a low budget production, and we will be able to offer a small daily fee.
The dates we need zombies are: 22, 24, 25, 26, 28, 30 April (day time)
1, 2, 3 May - night shoot.
Our biggest zombie day is the night of the 2nd of May, where we need a big crowd.
All will be shot not far from the Bunker, where our office is currently based.
We already have some people in place but we will need more, and it would be great of some local actors wanted to participate.
I look forward to hearing from anyone interested.
Best regards,
Irene Maffei

The South Devon Players


Film opportunity just come in
The South Devon Players theatre company, Brixham
Passing the word along - Stephen King film casting.
If you apply please mention you heard it from the South Devon Players theatre company. This is not an SDP production, we are simply passing the word along to those who may be interested.
____________________________________
Film opportunity just come in:
For more information, please contact the lady herself.
bigdrivermovie@hotmail.com
We have gained a short film contract with author Stephen King.
We are creating his short story 'Big Driver' from his book 'Full Dark, No Stars' and are looking for several actors.
We are looking for -
A middle aged, small, blonde woman
Two extremely tall and well-built men
Two late 50's - mid 60's women
A 20 something woman.
Two drivers.
40 + female extras for one scene.
(All must have license and vehicle due to locations)
This is an extremely dark natured story, and will be a challenging shoot. The story is of a middle aged woman, Tess, who is a reasonably successful author. She goes to a book club to talk to some fans, and is directed by the head librarian to a different route home; she takes it, but her Tyre is burst from some wood left in the road. A man stops to help her, but instead beats her and assaults her in an abandoned garage. She is left in a pipe with 3 other corpses - She plays dead, and when he leaves, she escapes and manages to get home. She washes away the evidence, and decides to take matters into her own hands, and kill all those involved. She finds out the librarian is in fact her attackers mother, and they've been working together over the last couple of years. She goes and kills her, the man who assaulted her, and his brother.
We shall be filming throughout summer in Devon, from the 9th August until the 17th.
It shall be one intense week and abit, pretty much dawn until dusk. We do need anyone to book the time off work etc. due to filming commitments. We shall cover costs for petrol, but this entire project is being funded through the public, so this will, sadly, be unpaid.
We shall however, provide food etc. this is an amazing opportunity; the chance to star in a genuine Stephen King film is one you can't simply let go. It shall be shown around the world at many film festivals, and a copy shall be given to the man himself.
This could open many doors for many people, and will look fantastic on anyone's CV.
We are currently in pre-production; anyone interested, please apply at bigdrivermovie@hotmail.com where we can discuss experience, story, and discuss a video audition.
Deadline is April 10th
We are currently very busy, so no face to face auditions will be held, instead we will send you a small section of the script of which character you wish to play, where you can record yourself performing it, and email it to us. This is simply because we are up and down the country a lot and we don’t want to set up an audition we may not be able to attend.

Actress required for promotional video

Hello
I work with Ghostly Publishing in Plymouth and we are currently in the stages of promoting our new children's book, The Perilous Postman. The book, aimed at 8 to 14 year olds, is about a fictitious village named Big Wig which is filled almost entirely with grannies. One day though the grannies start going missing and reappearing on the other side of the road, an address rubber stamped on their forehead and a book of stamps nearby. The elderly finger of suspicion is soon pointed at The Perilous Postman, so called due to him immense size and scary face. One boy, Danny Dickins, believes in The Postman's innocence and sets out to find who is doing such a thing. But can the Postman be trusted?

We are working with Primary schools across the UK to promote the book, and a website will soon be online promoting the book.
What we require is for an actress to play the role of a granny speaking to the camera about what is going on in Big Wig. This promotional video would then be used to promote the book and be featured on the website and youtube, etc. We would need a lady who is (or appears to be) in her seventies, who has a good sense of humour and a wish to be part of a children's classic!
If you would be able to put us in touch with an appropriate actress, please email me.

Kind regards
Ben Gavan bengavan@hotmail.co.uk

Banbury Cross Players

Press Release 312
This week, don’t miss this play

God of Carnage ?by Yazmina Reza (translated by Christopher Hampton)
A very clever comedy
Banbury Cross Players present Yazmina Reza’s God of Carnage, from 5 - 8 March 2014, at The Mill Arts Centre, Banbury.
“Fierce and very funny. Elegant, acerbic“ (The Independent)
Yasmina Reza is an expert analyst of social hypocrisy. Her play (wittily translated by Christopher Hampton) starts out as a rancidly funny account of two couples tiptoeing around their mutual dislike but quickly dissolves into a childish evening of name-calling, tears and tantrums.
Tickets are available from The Mill Box Office (01295 279002) or online at www.themillartscentre.co.uk
For more press information contact Linda Shaw on 07802 301726 or mail@banburycrossplayers.co.uk www.banburycrossplayers.co.uk
