The short film in production is a comedy-thriller about a young man whose car gets stolen and he and his housemate decide to steal it back after they spot it down the road, leading to an unfortunate predicament.

We're looking for 2 male actors for the film, aged between 18-30 to play the leads. At least one of them must be able to drive as a portion of the film will take place in a car driven by one of the characters.

We also need 2 people to play shifty-looking car thieves/bank robbers aged between 20-45.

We haven't fixed dates yet, so will work around everybody's schedules. It will likely be either over weekends or midweek in May/June.

Most of the shoot (including that with the thieves) would be in the daytime, but the 2 main actors would be needed for one evening/night shoot too. We envisage the whole shoot will last 2 days, though not necessarily concurrently.

It’s a low budget project so the shoot will have minimal crew and resources. We will pay only minimum wage (£78 per day) but feed actors and cover travel expenses.

I have 15 years of video production experience, so the resulting film will be of professional quality.

We plan to send the film out to festivals when it’s done and, of course, the actors would get copies and be able to use the film in their showreels.

Job payment

£78 per day - Expected 2 days shoot for 'male leads' and 1 day for 'thieves'.

Expenses paid - Travel and actors will be fed
