We are currently casting male and female actors of a a diverse range of ethnicities, aged 18 to 25, to play 6th-form college students (so with a late-teen playing age) who attend the same college as failing student Chaz 'Afropuff' James, who has gone off the rails. These are speaking roles which will be improvised, guided by the director so strong improvisational skills are essential.
Information about the film, behind-the-scenes shots and clips from the editing board can be found on the Facebook page available upon application, the full content of which is all the director's work. The production company is linked to a drama school of actors who play roles in the film, but casts a lot of actors and extras from outside of the school, to fill various other roles.
Tyrone's note to self: When your gang needs the money you owe their dealer, don't spend it all on spoiling your new girlfriend rotten... Bad things will happen... Bad things involving henchmen, gangsters, guns, chicken shops and ice cream vans.
At the centre of trouble in the hood, always seems to be Chaz aka Afropuff and his cronies who currently owe money to their dealer. Unfortunately, with his friend Tyrone frittering money away on impressing his new girlfriend, the gang are unable to pay up. Out of desperation, with a henchman on their tails, they attempt to rob the local chicken shop. However, with an Afro so distinctive that no robber's mask can disguise it, Chaz and his accomplice's plan goes horribly wrong and things go from bad to worse as they find themselves running from dangerous gangsters and corrupt police.
Meanwhile, three opposing gangs become embroiled in a drugs and money related turf war over South London. A persistent cycle of revenge between the three gangs ensues from physical brawls to escalation point, where guns are pulled out and lives are lost.
