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

David - 50s to 60s - Grey, Stocky.
Joseph - 20s, Skinnier, Taller.

An ageing Farmer (David) and his immature, demotivated son (Joseph) help with the farms upkeep. As David begins to notice a change in his health, his already struggling life takes a turn for the worse.

The project has no current fixed distribution plan but will be expected to qualify for film festivals etc.

Student Film, the crew has worked together for the last 3 years and have been working on short form fiction as a collective for the last year. We recently completed an intensive shoot on a horror film.

To check out our other work and professional workflow check out our website which will be available to view after application.

The shoot will last 3-4 days, perhaps in a consecutive order. Currently we are casting ahead of further production scheduling, as our film is heavily character based and this element is imperative. The protagonist David, should expect to work 30 hours as reference, and Joseph 20-25.

As we are students the pay will be subjected to 8.91 an hour, at the maximum minimum wage bandwidth. Hence the minimised production days. Online unpaid rehearsals are required, with the potential of 1 or 2 in person rehearsals with reimbursed travel fee.

Audition / Rehearsal / Production dates

Early to Mid September. Negotiable date.

Job payment

£8.91 per hour - Bank transfer following wrap.

Expenses paid - Travel reimbursed.

David (Male Protagonist)

David is a charismatic but reserved and introverted farmer, who has been living in a period of isolation for a time. His relationship with Joseph is difficult, the two are similar in many ways, but in ways that separate them. He is stubborn, self-centred, sarcastic, and sour. He respects the old ways as the best ways when it comes to his work, masculinity, and the walk of life.

Joseph (Support)

Joseph is intelligent but negligible in talent. He is self-loathing, but too stubborn to admit, and thus, he blames his upbringing for his flaws. Joseph is in equal parts sarcastic, yet struggles with his father's mirroring traits. He is immature, inexperienced, privileged but not posh. Strong Willed. He strongly opposes David's perspective on horticulture and manual labour as what defines a man.

  • Acting experience: Previous unpaid speaking roles, Previous paid speaking roles
