My third advert on StarNow for actors.

Info

My name is Elliott and I am 24 years old. I'm the Director, Executive Producer, Screenwriter and I will also be doing post production for the upcoming film “Harold De Headhunter”.

My experience in filmmaking: In the past I have filmed my own documentary of a play that I took part in back in 2018, where I did camera work and film editing.

I am presently directing, producing, acting and editing my short comedy film called “Actor Required” which is not completed yet, because of Covid19. I am still trying to learn filmmaking and gain some experience.

I have also been acting in short films in the past and it was a really good experience.

I am looking for really passionate and confident actors based in Oxford or London, to perform in the upcoming film.

Experience is needed, but it will be unpaid work.

Plot:
A kind and brave person named Harold De Headhunter was raised by an insane and unlikely family who have a tradition for crime, and he wanted no part of it, but he was forced by his own father to commit crime to keep the family tradition alive. During the progress, Harold gets accused and sentenced to 25 years for a murder he did not commit, where half of his life has died on him.

After his release in his late forties, Harold goes on an impossible journey to get a normal life and to prove his innocence, but because of his criminal record it makes it harder for him to get the life he desires.. Will he ever prove his innocence and improve that he is something else other than a convicted murderer?

Plans for the film:
I am hoping to put in a few film festivals and and put it on IMDB/Amazon Prime and YouTube.

I am still on the process of finding locations, preproduction works and getting things prepared for the shooting days.

Dates: 12th to 16th of October, plus I will send the schedule if casted.

Those of you who are applying for Kira Johnson, she is a small role and one of the key characters of the film. Please beware that the character is a role of a victim to Flaemas Headhunter (Harold's older brother).

The scene is intense and violent, but I do have a good reason to have this scene on the film, those of you who are applying please be aware.
