Seven Male and One Female Actor is needed for a Short Comedy/Drama film. The film itself is called "Finders Keepers" and is about four trouble prone, doss abouts, Cal, Rowan, Ed and James. The short film will follow the four characters living there day to day lives until they all stumble across someone parking an overly expensive mountain bike outside the corner shop. The film show`s the four characters fighting over whose getting the bike, whist also trying to not get caught stealing by anyone. If one of them wants the bike, they have to steal it before the owner gets out the shop.

The project itself is a short Student film, of which is being created and being used as my final major project for my final year at The University of Salford. As well as this the film will also be uploaded to streaming platforms such as YouTube, Facebook and Instagram, not just for the purposes of entertainment but to also show myself and everyone else's capabilities as well as further network ourselves professionally. As well as being shared online via social media, I`ll also be attempting to enter the film into various competitions and festivals, depending on whether the people in charge of those allow me to or not.

The film is being produced and created by myself and a small group of Student filmmaker`s, off which(including myself) are all in there final years. This means that we`ve all had at least 3-5 years worth of education in the craft of filmmaking, each having time to fully learn and understand the different roles me and my team specialise in today.
