Male Actor Needed for Exciting and Surreal Short Film

Male Actor Needed for Exciting and Surreal Short Film

Manchester, UK
Listed by View details

A casual, routine walk with your dog takes a steep detour. You find something that shouldn’t be there. It isn’t scary, dangerous, or really that interesting. But why’s it here? Of all places. Why are you drawn to it? Why can you hear music? And where is your dog?

Strange, subdued and abstract is how I’d attempt to describe the story. Filmed across multiple locations and settings (woods, cinema, social club) with a wild bunch of characters (the bartender, grandma, santa). Think Kubrick, Lovecraft, Lynch, and a Tony Soprano nightmare; we want to tell a puzzle, create a tense, unexplainable mood, that airs of the familiar to the macabre. People might struggle to understand it, but they'll feel it.

This is a short film and the script must be read before getting involved. We’re looking for an actor who is fully on board, and excited about this sort of storytelling. We’re currently at the early stages of pre production so we’re flexible with dates and would like to chat about the project in further detail with potential actors.

Filmed in and around Manchester, expenses covered. If you’re interested at all or have any questions about project, please apply or send me a direct message.

Please sent any relevant works or showreels

Have a great day
