Listed by View details

Tremolo is an exciting student production to come out of the National Film and Television School. Set in modern-day London, it is a poignant story of determination and strength as we watch a young, talented musician battle with her inner demons as she tries to succeed in the harsh world of classical music.

We will need enthusiastic extras to help bring the scenes to life.

One scene will involve the minor character swimming in a lake so being able to swim is a requirement.

Covid safety measures will be implemented throughout the shoot.

Although participation would be on a voluntary basis, it should be a really fun shoot and is a great opportunity to get involved with such a unique student production.


The owner of this listing has agreed to abide by local 'working with children' regulations. All minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Audition / Rehearsal / Production dates

Shooting will be from Wednesday 28th July until Wednesday 4th August (exact dates and timings are to be confirmed shortly). No audition is required.

Job payment

Unpaid – this is a collaboration opportunity - Student Filming Exercise

Collaborations should create mutual benefit and are usually amateur, student or 'Time for Print' projects.

All advertisers agree to abide by the UK National Minimum Wage Act and are responsible for defining the nature of their production and any payment requirements. Find out more.
