Actors wanted for Maggot Brain, a Student Drama about Funkadelic

Cardiff, UK. Apply from all UK.
Listed by View details

A funky film about 'Maggot Brain' by 'Funkadelic', telling the story of how one of the greatest guitar pieces in history came to be.

We tell the story of early 1970s Funkadelic, the social aspects that were on the forefront of their minds, and how the use of lsd influenced their music.

We are student filmmakers from the university of South Wales and this is our final graduation film, a project that's been in the works since summer 2020.

We are looking for black actors to take on the various roles in our film, and the script is written in the vernacular of that time, so some skill in accents is important too.
