Thank you very much for your interest.

I would just like to inform you that I am a first time filmmaker and that the production, depending on your experience, could be much more amateur than you might be used to. If however, you are still happy to be involved then I will of course consider you for the role.

Also, just to reiterate that at the moment the filming is set for August in Lancaster for five days.

Thank you again,

Kind regards,

Lucas is a neighbourhood/school friend. He's a guest at the party as well as a musician there to perform a song for the birthday girl.
