Listed by View details

Actors needed to play Parents, babysitter and child siblings in Halloween-set horror short. Roles require some lines, abit of reaction and shaking and light use of fake blood on child actor’s faces.

The setup for the short is: a bag of tapes are found and converted to be watched. The tape concerning this scene features a hidden camcorder, setup by parents who are leaving their children with a new babysitter, in order to make sure all is well. Once the parents leave, the babysitter tells the children a ghost story and asks them if they would like to watch a video. The children agree, she puts the video on and says she’ll return soon. After a couple of minutes of watching, the children start bleeding from their eyes, start shaking and then collapse back on the sofa. The tape fast forwards to the parents coming home, entering the room and screaming, then the scene ends.

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.
