Supporting Roles for Feature-Length British Horror Film [User Submitted]
Spanning over two full length films creative project, our dark independent horror tale has been shot mainly in the UK with various cameos from independent horror actors / film makers from the UK and USA collaborating together.
Principal photography continues with just a handful of scenes remaining before full completion of both films, both titles are approximately 95% shot with post-production well underway. The final feature films will be sent to distributors upon completion, with the intent of a Blu-Ray / DVD / VOD release. However at this stage it is an unpaid, self-funded, passion project.
The first feature film requires a selection of clips featured in a news report airing on Halloween night containing many accounts of ‘possessed’ people from across the world.
Please do not address the camera directly, If possible make use of a Halloween setting.
Be bold and daring clips actors or models with the ability to self-shoot on a Camcorder or HD mobile phone to submit to our editing team for inclusion. Submissions must be from persons over 18 years of age, due to sensitive themes.
Successful submissions will require signing a hand signed release form for usage in the film while the role is unfortunately unpaid a credit will be given in the film’s main end credit roll, with the character name “possessed person”.
CHARACTER: Possessed person, a deranged and insane person who has been taken over violent and odd tendencies.
Ideally dirty, torn, shabby clothing, unkempt hair, dirty makeup (if possible),
gore scenarios are also fine if you feel like getting adventurous. Feel free to get as wild and creative as you feel comfortable with as the film is aimed at adults and already contains gore with paranormal elements.
Don’t be scared, or shy, to be as extreme as comfortably able, visual physical elements would be great to break up clips and make them unique! This film is on a collaborative basis and we are open to you incorporating any ideas you may have about your character, as long as you stay within the guidelines.
NB this footage will be presented on a TV screen and Fullscreen as part of a NEWS reel playing Halloween night “found footage” style, suggesting the footage has been filmed by a concerned family member and collected by the News station for the feature.
Addressing or attacking another person is also fine, along with any creative ideas you may have for a possessed person - The submission does not have to be limited to one screen actor per video, but all participants will require completing a general release form for their contribution.
Submissions have no specific requirement in time length and can be 20 seconds to a few minutes. Footage will be edited to match / fit the requirement of the scene if used.
IMPORTANT: remember to film in landscape/horizontal and NOT portrait, otherwise the footage may not be used, and do not address the camera directly as though it is a video diary thank you.
