I am making a short film adaptation of a very little known tale by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle called "The New Catacomb". It is a mystery/archeology/adventure story.

The film will go out on Youtube as well as on the Sherlock Holmes/Sir Arthur Conan Doyle fan website - No Place Like Holmes.

The website also produces other media content relating to the literary works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. This includes essays, web series, documentaries, and short films. This is a very popular website for fans of Sherlock Holmes and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and sees several thousand visitors on a daily basis. So, potential exposure is good.

You will receive an IMDb credit, your site of choice will be promoted on both the NPLH website and Youtube video, and you will be permitted to use the footage elsewhere should you wish. Also, bear in mind that the website has great outreach, so this is something that many people could see you in. I, of course, will give you a very glowing recommendation too.

I also offer free showreel editing to any actors that works for me. This is something that most will charge you anywhere between 80-200 pounds for.

This is not a commercial production.


Shortlisted Applicants will be asked for self-tapes.

Julius Burger

Lead. Doctor of Archaeology and number 1 authority of Roman archaeology. Has found a tomb that nobody else has, but is unwilling to share the location, unless they make it worth his while.

Benjamin Kennedy

Lead. Archaeologist and colleague of Burger. Ambitious, confident, and determined. He is in disgrace due to his recent affair with a member of staff. Needs to make a big find to keep his job, but is having no luck on the latest dig. Maybe Julius can help?
