Four actors needed for student film - Southampton

Southampton, UK
Listed by View details

We are holding auditions in Southampton on Friday 8th of March and will be held at Southampton Solent University for a short film myself and six other students are making. The film is about an internet journalist and a group of students trying to discover if the myth of the Slender man is real (think of a mix between Troll Hunter and Catfish). We are also looking for extras in Southampton and Reading who would be willing to read a few lines for an opening montage. The shoot will begin on the 18th of March at Reading (we will pay for travel and accommodation if necessary).

If this is something you would be interested please feel free to get in touch to know more about the film and so that we can fit you in to our timetable. We will also be accepting video auditions if that suits you better. Thanks for reading and we hope to hear from you soon

Supporting role-Francis Stewart PhD

Francis Stewart is a physicist/university lecturer who is the lead authority on how the Slender Man could exist in our world. He is pretty condescending when discussing physics or the Slender man and would rather be playing video games or on Slender related forums where he has gained notoriety as a somewhat online deity due to his scientifically backed studies. For a scientist, somewhat immature, he takes little enjoyment from discussing his work and would much rather be on the internet.
