Moving North

Matt Flint joins judging panel

Matt Flint, West End performer, choreographer and winner of BBC’s So You Think You Can Dance series 2, has joined Artistic Director Lynn Wallis on the judging panel for the Final of Moving North at The Lowry in Salford on 18 July. Blue Peter and former Olympics presenter Radzi Chinyanganya will host the Final.

Matt says: 'I come from Scarborough so I'm really excited to be judging the Final of Moving North at The Lowry! Having been through similar experiences before, I think giving young people the chance to perform motivates them hugely: the fact that everyone can enter in four different genres is a real key to accessibility, and I would particularly encourage male dancers to give it a go. Well done RAD!'
Our new competition is designed to give dancers up to the age of 18 a chance to enter their own pieces in one of four genres – ballet, contemporary, jazz, or street dance/hip hop – and as part of any of three heats. Closing dates have now been extended to April.

All dancers living in the UK or Republic of Ireland aged 8-18 in non-vocational training can enter, no RAD syllabus experience necessary! See our flyer for more information.
Prize
The grand prize will be a VIP box at Dance Proms (to be held in London’s Royal Albert Hall on 15 November), as well as plenty of promotion of your act via the RAD’s global website.
Dates
The heats for Moving North will take place in:
• Leeds – 3 May (closing date for entries: 7 April)
• Bolton – 10 May (closing date for entries: 7 April)
• York – 21 June (closing date for entries: 13 April)
The final will take place in the Quays Theatre at The Lowry in Salford on 18 July.
Applications

We are currently producing a short film called “Rags" which is shooting in Swindon. We are looking for some additional cast members and id really like to get you guys involved.

The Roles I’m looking for are:
- 3 x 20-26 year old boys/men. They will hang around the park. Caucasian.
- 1 x 16-19 year old girls. joking, laughing on the cul de sac. Not Caucasian.
- we also need a baby - around 6 months old, who will be in a couple of scenes.

If you think anyone would be interested as an extra, I’d need the following:
- A head shot

They would be extras in the film so if they don’t have any acting background its fine.

They would need to be available to come to Swindon for filming on Thursday 5th March.

I can cover travel however I wouldn’t have any form of payment for their services but I’m hoping the experience would be really interesting for them. The director is Tom Beard, and the film is very powerful..quite a sensitive subject matter.

Actors wanted for a 2nd year film

Hello,
I am from the University of Lincoln and am in my second year. We are making a 10 minute short film for our course, and need 3 lead actors. If you would be able to share this around, that would be great.
I'm afraid as it's a student project it will be unpaid work, but we will provide everything but transport (if from outside of Lincoln) during shooting. It's mainly an opportunity to get experience.
We will be holding auditions this weekend on Saturday at 3pm and Sunday 3pm and will be shooting from Monday 2nd of March until Friday 7th.
The character details are as follows, and copies of the script will be available to applicants.

Esme:
Mid to early 20's, appearance is not important necessarily, but preferably short. Esme is a serial killer who gets her victims via dating sites. She is flirty and cheerful but has a dark side.

Max:
Mid to early 20's, again appearance is not important however preferably tall. Max is also a serial killer, and preys on victims by pretending to be hurt himself. He often uses a hammer.

Alex:
Mid to early 20's, appearance not important, preferably tall. He is a lovable loser, always focuses on the bright side. He is the only victim we see in the film.

Thank you for your time, any help is appreciated.

Producer at COLLINN Productions

Casting Call, Short Film

We are looking for actors to take part in an unpaid student film from the University of Gloucestershire. It will be a 5-7 minute drama short film, revolving around a married couple. We are looking for actors to fill 2 main roles and 5 other supporting roles which are disclosed below. The filming will likely place in Cheltenham and its surrounding area. If you or anyone you know may be interested in this, details are at the bottom of the page.

Plot
A young father-to-be discovers he is likely to go blind within 6 months, shortly before his daughter is due to be born. His ever increasing disability puts strain on his relationship, as well as his faith in his ability to be a good Dad. However when his daughter is finally born, he comes to terms with his blindness and is finally able to move forward into fatherhood.
Characters
BEN, (25) is married to his childhood sweetheart and a sensitive soul. He became a firefighter in admiration of his father’s profession, whose untimely death led Ben to strongly desire fatherhood for himself. When Ben is suddenly told he will be blind within 6 months and roughly around his wife’s due date. He struggles to cope, believing he can no longer be a good father. He internalises almost everything, creating a tension between him and his wife
ALANA, (23) is Ben’s pregnant wife, fiery but fair and understands her husband completely. She comes from a wealthy background but grew up to be very independent, often opposing her parent’s views. She is a great believer in equality for everyone and is unafraid to speak her mind. She always desired children and is incredibly excited about the baby and even though Ben will lose his sight she believes he will be a good father and it hurts her to think she can’t make him believe that.

The film takes place over several months in the couple’s lives meaning that Alana will become increasingly pregnant throughout the film. If cast in the role, you will have to wear a pregnancy suit.

Supporting roles include:
• Fire Chief, Hanson
• Ben’s Co-Worker, Craig
• Alana’s Father
Auditions will be taking place Wednesday 18th February in Park Campus, Cheltenham. If you are unable to make it you are still welcome to apply as we can organise either a skype audition or you can send us a video audition. Upon receiving an email inquiry, we will send you a selection of scripts to choose from to prepare for the audition.

Casting call

Hello,
I am a second year Media Production student at Northumbria University and the producer for one of our upcoming films. Our film is about a man with sin who has just died and entered limbo, and he encounters a woman who will not let him pass into the 'gates of hell'. The actual style of the film will be very realistic but this is the underlying implications.

We are in need of two actors:
- A man in his late 50's, preferably of a bigger build but not necessarily
- A woman in her late 60's

The filming should only take one day and all food and travel expenses will be provided.
Although we cannot pay the actors, it would be an excellent piece of work to add to their portfolio as the film allows for a lot of range in emotion and acting.

You can contact me via this email address shibeal.mccullagh@northumbria.ac.uk or by phone on 07894890601

Many thanks,
Shibeal Mc Cullagh
