Male Actor Required for Try Hard Comedy Short Film

Male Actor Required for Try Hard Comedy Short Film

Sheffield, UK
Listed by View details

We are a writing directing partnership of Joleen & Peter based in Sheffield.
We are casting our second project, a 15 minute comedy film called Try Hard. It is about three working class students who spend Christmas day together in a student common room because they are not going home for Christmas.
We are going to send it to film festivals (which will be our first time) and write the feature film script.

We’re looking for an actor to play Dan Preston, aged between 25-35.

Joleen will be directing and doing the camerawork. Peter will be acting as one of the students called Nick.

If you’re interested, we are going to accept self tapes first and then do zoom calls for the shortlist (if we get a lot interest). Even if you’re not successful we’ve got lots we want to do in the future so we’ll probably cross paths again!

We made our first project last year, a zero budget 15 minute proof of concept comedy called Out of the Ordinary. We are still in the process of editing it.

Let us know if you have any questions. Thank you very much.

Audition / Rehearsal / Production dates

2 days of rehearsal over a weekend or two in August 2020 (dependent on lockdown).
2-3 days of filming at the end of August/beginning of September.
