Actors & Extras Wanted for ‘Bright Lights’ Short Film

Blackpool, UK
Listed by View details

6 Characters and 4 Extras for the short drama “Bright Lights”, set in post corona Blackpool in a small hotel filled with its own branch of quirky characters.
This film shows the internal battle of a person with autism trying to accept themselves and their passion.
“A young autistic hotel cleaner dreams of being a singer, with the return of karaoke after months of lockdown, can he muster the courage to perform?”

I'm the Casting Director and think this will be an exciting and fulfilling project for all involved. Featuring amazing positive representation for those with autism and the town of Blackpool. The script Tom Hanham has written is a heart-warming portrayal of someone with autism trying to do what they really love, and think it is an important story with genuine representation. The film is being shot on an Arri Alexa with CP2 lenses by our Director of Photography Ben Codrai. Simon King, our director, is currently doing his MA in Directing at MET Film School.

On top of pay, food will be provided on all shooting days, and upon completion, you will receive a downloadable file of the finished film. Thanks for reading!
